At the end of the week, a small test will allow your teacher to guide you better in your learning process. In addition to your 15 hours of General English lessons, you’ll have 6 hours of optional courses, where you’ll have the opportunity to choose from a wide range of academic, sporting and creative areas, such as:

  • Exam skills (minimum level: B2)
  • Business and leadership skills
  • STEAM: this concept of combining STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) with the Arts has recently been advocated as a way for science to develop a better relationship with society. This course allows students to enjoy themselves as they learn English, conduct experiments and explore their creativity.

At the end of your course, you will receive a certificate attesting the language level achieved.

Host family
This is the perfect option for students who want to find their home away from home while on their language stay. The majority of students will be placed in single rooms, while some may be accommodated in twin rooms during busier weeks. Host families will bring students to school in the mornings and pick them up in the evenings, while twice a week, they’ll bring them back to school after dinner for evening activities. Full board is provided, so you can spend some quality time with your host family during breakfast and dinner as you get to know each other, while you’ll have lunch in the campus cafeteria. Learn about English culture in an authentic, welcoming environment!

With a packed activities programme, you won’t have time to be bored during your summer in Cheltenham! In the afternoons, try your hand at sports, swimming, arts or drama in the campus’ amazing facilities. After dinner with your host family, you might spend time together playing a board game or watching a film, and two nights a week they’ll take you back to the campus to enjoy fun, group activities like disco and film nights with your fellow students. You’ll love taking full day trips to places like London, Bristol or Bath (dinner provided by the school). Get ready to have a good time!
