Summer English Courses

Our Summer English Courses

Our summer English courses are designed to prepare international students for studying in British Boarding Schools in an international summer school environment.  Our summer language courses in the UK are also suitable for students who just want a ‘taste’ of British Education.  Our courses are academic, with English for Education as the main focus.  Students will study intensive English and up to ten other academic subjects.  In addition to the academic studies, our summer school students also focus on the personal development of their ‘soft skills’.
