Holiday English – Closed Groups

Request a quote

easter

Come spend your Easter, summer or other holiday break in the beautiful Garden of England learning English.

We work with organisations and institutions to provide special holiday English courses. Minimum group numbers are 12 students.

We can design the programme to suit your needs, include excursions and trips of your choice, and offer a range of other activities (e.g. sports, music concerts, theatre shows, etc.). With companies, we can work with your HR department to develop programmes around your KPIs.

Booking

Our programmes are organised in one-week periods, from Sunday to Sunday (the students arrive on a Sunday and leave on a Sunday).

Some periods, especially the summer months (June to September) can be very busy. We recommend that you book your programme as early as possible (at least 3 months) to avoid disappointment. Request a quote or call and speak to us.

How Students Will Learn

During each week, students normally will have 15 hours of English lessons and 15 hours of Learning Activities.  There are optional Weekend Activities. A general guide about what students can learn according to their level can be seen here.

We can tailor the English course and programme according to what you want.
