Lessons normally take place from Monday to Friday between 09:00 and 11:45. Each of the three morning lessons focuses on a specific area of language learning: grammar and language work, reading and listening, or communicative activities and speaking practice. Our aim is to provide you with the vocabulary and grammar required for effective communication where particular attention is paid on improving speaking and listening skills. The goal of the course is to strengthen your communication skills and help overcome your own speaking inhibitions.
The following levels are catered for: elementary (A2), pre-intermediate (B1), upper intermediate (B2), advanced (C1). Duration: minimum 1 week


available as a supplement

The Intensive Course consists of the General English Course plus an additional lesson per day (11:45 -12:30) which focuses on a fourth area of language learning: Project-based lesson which emphasis on writing skills.
The following levels are catered for: elementary (A2), pre-intermediate (B1), upper intermediate (B2), advanced (C1). Duration: minimum 1 week

This is a highly individualised course. The lessons are based on the same concept as the intensive course for groups of up to 4 students. Working in very small groups allows you to focus on your own language needs and problems. Together with the teacher you can decide what you want to work on and which aspects of language you want to improve.

As one day is definitely not enough for a city like London, our Overnight Trip gives you a unique chance to discover better this amazing place. You will leave your IP centre on Saturday morning, after the early breakfast, and arrive to London shortly before Midday. Our well-trained supervisors will take you on a walking tour around Westminster and you will get plenty of free time to do shopping with your international friends. Having spent a day out, the group of Overnighters will be taken by tube to a modern London Youth Hostel, where they will have dinner. But do not worry, the day is not over yet! After the meal, a VIP Party Bus will pick you up from the Hostel and take you on a night 2h tour around London. Just sit back, relax and enjoy the city lights with great music in the background! On Sunday morning, just after breakfast in the hostel you will set off to spend one more full day in London and explore the rest of this beatiful city. You will come back to your IP centre just in time for the late dinner.

Important Notice: This special is not included in the programme and must be booked in advance. Minimum age required is 13 (exceptions might be made for closed groups only upon request). Booking the Overnight Trip automatically prevents you from attending the scheduled full day trip. Minimum number of students is 15 – in case the are not enough participants, an alternative programme will be offered. 

SURF COURSE (5 x 1,5 hours)

Bournemouth is ideal for surfing (wave riding). For those of you who want to combine English lessons and the surf experience, we offer this special course with our surf partner in Bournemouth. In the mornings you will attend the General or Intensive English course with your fellow students.

The surfing course consists of five afternoons with one and a half hour lessons each. Equipment will be provided. Depending on the weather, tide and the size of the waves the surf lessons might vary. Therefore paddle boarding is offered as an alternative when the weather conditions don’t allow surfing.

Please bear in mind that booking this course combination may prevent you from joining other activities or a scheduled excursion.

Our Supervision Concept

Your safety and welfare are very important to us, therefore our supervision concept for students in our Summer Language Holidays Programme is based on a compulsory activity programme during afternoons and evenings seven days a week. The cornerstone of this programme are the daily „Time to Talk“ meetings.

13 to 15 year olds

You participate in a compulsory programme consisting of a wide choice of afternoon activities and at least one planned evening activity. During town walks our staff will accompany you into town. You will then have the opportunity to explore the city centre with your friends in pairs or bigger groups for a period of up to two hours.

16 to 17 year olds

Teenagers aged 16 or 17 are free to experience and explore things with their friends in pairs or bigger groups on and off campus. Our supervisors provide a good mix of supervision and personal freedom for this age group. Participation in the afternoon and evening activity programme is voluntary for students over the age of 16.

You are looking for a programme with more freedom to discover on your own? – Check our Young Adults Programme!

Time to Talk

You will be part of a TTT (Time to Talk) group of up to 25 students. In the lunchtime TTT you tell your supervisor what you want to do in the afternoon and the supervisor will put you in the respective sign-up list which will be checked when the programme starts. The same happens at the dinner time TTT for the evening event.


The place to be for your summer language holidays Bournemouth is an exciting seaside resort and a colourful student town, with visitors and students from all over the world creating a cosmopolitan and international atmosphere. The mild climate and fine summer weather is perfect for a great outdoor holiday experience. It's a busy town with great shopping facilities and live entertainment. Our summer English schools are just a few minutes away from the town centre, which is surrounded by beautiful gardens. From here it is only a short walk to one of Britain's cleanest and most popular sandy beaches. Our residences and the school are within a few minutes walking distance from each other. In the afternoon and evening an international team will organise various activities for all IP students. All of this will contribute to you speaking a lot of English with students from all over the world - during the summer 2017 we had between 100 and 250 students from 20 different nationalities per week. Our language school is located in a former church built 90 years ago and was refurbished in 2014. Our IP Ocean Lounge is THE meeting-point for our students in Bournemouth. Of course our school offers a lot of comfort: The IP Fruit 'n' Fit - Corner provides you all day long with water, tea and fruit. There is time for beach activities, which is only 5 minutes away from school. In summer we may utilise Bournemouth & Poole College which is situated at a convenient 10-minute-walk from the school, the town centre and the beach. As the school premises are so conveniently located, our leisure programme stretches all the way to Bournemouth town centre or even to the beach, where you will be able to visit our very own and typically British beach hut.
