Our Summer school starts on June 22nd 2020 and we have a rolling intake every Sunday until we close on the 8th August 2020. Our school is in Shoreham-By-Sea it’s a pretty town on the South Coast just outside the City of Brighton, Shoreham town offers shops, cafes, restaurants, and lots of recreational space, it is a very safe area. There is an excellent bus service into Brighton and Worthing (every 10 minutes) and train links into London, Portsmouth, Arundel and all the excursions we plan are very easily accessed. We offer very good quality host family accommodation and we always try to place students as near to the school as possible. English lessons are focused mainly on conversation, listening, pronunciation and gaining confidence in speaking, there is a small amount of grammar but in general we make lessons interesting and fun. Please find some more information below:
We offer a good variation of afternoon activities together with one evening activity per week either an evening at the Brighton Pier funfair or a disco evening where students from our school can integrate with students of other language schools.
Host Family Accommodation
All students will stay with a local host family, they can either stay in pairs with a student(s) of a different or same nationality (“Buddy” process), they will have full board accommodation during their stay – breakfast, packed lunch and dinner. We use our host families all year round and they are friendly, helpful and welcoming and offer good quality accommodation. We try to place students as near to the school as possible.
Student Welfare -We check the welfare of all our students each morning and any problems, sickness / lost property and general wellbeing are dealt with as quickly as possible by our onsite welfare officer. The emergency contact is available for students to call 24h in case of any emergency that could occur during their stay.
