Adult Summer Teaching Programme
At Churchill House our Summer English Courses are designed to improve a student's level of fluency, to raise their confidence levels and, of course, to be interesting and fun. Depending upon the centre a student can choose between 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 week courses (or even longer in Ramsgate) with starting dates throughout the summer.
Our aim is always to make the student's stay with us worthwhile and enjoyable. Our teachers are professional and enthusiastic, helping the student learn as much useful English as possible. Each summer we welcome students from over 60 different countries, so a student can learn in truly international surroundings. Students may take lessons in the morning with an afternoon activity programme, or may have afternoon lessons with activities in the morning.
Classes are small allowing more one to one attention (average class size 12 - 15 students) and cover a wide range of levels of English. The student is tested on arrival and teachers closely monitor his or her progress throughout their stay to ensure the correct level of ability is maintained. Our lessons motivate the student by using a wide range of language activities designed to improve his or her ability to communicate fluently.
The General English programmes at all our summer language centres will include the following:
- Project and cultural lessons. These are organised in weekly themes which include world cultures, the future, the media, fashion, lifestyles, music, the arts, family & friendships. These themed lessons build over the week towards the creation and completion of a real task; for example the production of newspaper and magazine articles, diaries, surveys, films, plays and sketches. Students take this work home to show their school teachers and parents and to remember their stay with us.
- Excursion preparation lessons, where the teacher will use a variety of activities to learn about the places which students will visit as part of the weekly excursion programme.
- Internet lessons, where students will work on-line to research language and materials which they will use in creating their projects.
- 'English in Action' students interact with the public and use everyday english in order to complete their final projects and present them to their peers and teachers.
