Course overview

Obviously the aim is to help students improve their English with a view to ensuring that they will be able to use English accurately and fluently. 

The school ethos is to go one step further, than basic language learning. It is  to help students develop a love of languages through learning strategies that encourage and assist them to move towards becoming more independent learners. 

This innovative process helps to equip students with the right strategies for continuing to learn after the course has finished

Teaching methodology

The school combines traditional language teaching with the latest teaching techniques. Students learn relevant language which they can put into immediate use. All the course material has been developed in-house by the experienced teaching team and approved by the British Council.

Course detail

Prior to their first lesson the students are tested by the teachers and classes are arranged on the basis of language ability and nationality mix. Classes are tailor-made to enhance all four skills, reading, listening, writing and speaking. Lessons take place both inside and outside the classroom. There is a minimum of 18 hours of English lessons per week. 

 

Activities

The activity programme is designed to be an extension of the English lessons and are specifically designed to enhance and improve communicative English. This might include such things as Conversation clubs, visits into Totnes or Exeter to develop language themes learnt in the class room. 

Sports and Arts and Crafts

There is also a great mix of sports, arts and crafts, music and drama and social events. Students have opportunities to try new activities as well as one’s they may already know. 

Excursion programme

There are half day excursions each week as well as one full day excursion. The team who run the excursion programme are all fully trained to ensure that they are not just extremely enjoyable and fun but that they serve an educational role.Visits take into account the historical and cultural aspects of the city and the educational value and the use of the English language.

Excursions may include the following places:

  • Exeter
  • Dartmoor
  • Plymouth
  • Bigbury Beach

Safety

Safety is always the number one priority on any excursion. All students have an identity card with the mobile telephone number of the teacher in charge of the excursion as well as all the school contact details.
