Lessons normally take place from Monday to Friday between 08:30 and 11:15. 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.

MINI-GROUP ENGLISH COURSE

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.

LONDON OVERNIGHT TRIP

available as a supplement

As one day is not enough for a city like London, our overnight trip gives you more time to take in the sights. On Saturday morning you will get an early breakfast and a packed lunch for the day. You will arrive in London around lunch time (your coach might stop in London Heathrow on the way). Our supervisors will organise several sightseeing and shopping walks for you and you can explore the city during your free time. In the evening you will have a warm meal together with overnighters from our other destinations. You will spend the night in a youth hostel in shared rooms. The modern hostel has multi-bedded rooms with en-suite toilet and shower facilities (towel not provided). Breakfast on Sunday morning and a packed lunch are provided. You have several more hours to explore London before leaving the city on Sunday afternoon. Once you have returned to your centre, you will get a packed evening meal.

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. 

Price: £129.00

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. Our staff ratio on campus for the age group 13-17 years is 1:15, however supervision groups during activities on or off campus will have different ratios of up 25 students for 13-17 year old depending on the situation.

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.

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.

Portsmouth

UK’s only island city offers the perfect combination of vibrant city life, great shopping facilities, miles of beautiful waterfront and great amusement parks. There are no less than 4 beaches, the closest just being a 10-minute walk away from our residence, where you can spend time during your summer language holidays in the mild climate of England’s south. For shopping addicts a visit to the Gunwharf Quays is a must. Using the modern facilities of the University of Portsmouth we offer every afternoon and evening and exciting activity programme. But this unique city is not only famous for its beaches and shopping, it is the birthplace of Charles Dickens and has been home to other literary greats during their lifetimes.
