English Language Tuition Overview
English Immersion courses for children build confidence and develop speaking fluency.
Before arriving, students will be asked to complete a language test that their teacher will use to develop their personalised course. Alongside classroom based tuition, activity-based learning also allows students to practice English in a comfortable setting.
The immersive nature of these courses means that students will be able to make quick progress in their language learning journey, even if they are only attending for 2 weeks!
Boarding School Preparation Overview
This course will help prepare students for life at boarding school, including practical and cultural lessons.
Boarding School Preparation courses include:
• Greater understanding of UK and Ireland boarding schools and curricula
• Develop independent study skills
• Practical life skills for boarding schools
School Subjects Overview
This is a total immersion course for young learners who would like to focus on a particular academic subject in English such as maths or science. The teacher will be a fully qualified primary school teacher and will develop the course based on the student’s current learning journey.
Home Tuition programmes also aim to give students a cultural experience. Each week, students will receive 2 half-day excursions in the local area, with 1 full-day also included for courses of 2 weeks or more. Excursions can be tailored to the students interests and give them the opportunity to experience life in a British family.
Student welfare is our number one priority so you can be sure your children are in a safe environment. All teachers are qualified and police background checked. We also regularly inspect and observe teachers to ensure the highest standards continue to be met.
