Skola has announced that it will be offering its one-week summer courses at Ascot and Culford at a 10% discount between the dates of 25th and 31st July.
This is a great opportunity for students interested in improving their English skills to both learn and interact with other international students.
The staff running these two programmes are energetic and well qualified. They make sure that the programmes run smoothly and that each student derives maximum benefit from them. The grounds are fantastic, and the sports programmes, which are offered alongside the language courses, give students the opportunity to apply what they have learned in the classroom in another context.
Ascot class sizes do not exceed 18, and the programme there includes excursions to London to visit museums and to see the sights. The programme fees include accommodation, meals, entrance tickets for excursions and sports fees. The campus is located a mere 45 minutes from London and half an hour from Heathrow Airport, making it very convenient for students to attend the school for a short period of time. Students typically arrive on Sunday and leave on Saturday.
The Culford programme is held at Alexanders International School, an all-year-round institution for international students. This programme offers a wide variety of sports activities to its students while they are learning English, including swimming, golf and rock climbing. The maximum class size is 16, and the teachers employ a communicative approach to English tuition. They rely on both traditional classroom teaching and the application of language in social a context to reinforce lessons and grammar rules. The Culford programme is located 30 minutes outside Cambridge, a world-famous university, and excursions are made there during the programme.
The activities offered at both of these schools, from sports to plays to city excursions, help students become well-rounded language learners and develop skills such as adaptability, flexibility and ingenuity, which help them learn more quickly. For English-language learners looking for summer schools UK-based programmes such as these are a great opportunity to improve language skills and apply them in a social and academic environment.
Learning English is a fantanstic opportunity, regardless of whether a student learns it at a summer school Berkshire or summer school in Ascot. And, with a deal like this, learning English just got more affordable as well.
