ENGLISH COURSES FOR FAMILIES

The Programme

This package is designed specifically for the demanding parents who want to get the best for themselves and their children’s future. Many parents are becoming conscious of the importance of the English language in order to have a firm foothold on their career opportunities. To improve their own and their children’s career prospects, we have devised a whole new concept for all the Family members who want to have a relaxed and memorable holiday while improving their English language abilities.

Teaching for Adults

Parents will attend our sister schools who we work with on a regular basis to make sure that parents of our families mixed with students of similar ages rather than younger students mainly, as this is the case in the high seasons. Each member of the teaching team is well qualified and experienced. The team is led by a senior teacher who carefully plans classroom activity to ensure that students make good progress with their English and have lots of fun. Lessons include creative activities and will often relate to life in the UK and to trips and excursions. We ensure that students cover all the essentials of grammar, vocabulary and language skills. At the end of the Summer School each student is presented with a course completion certificate.

Children will attend a holiday club that is run from a local primary school, where they will mix with BRITISH CHILDREN. The Camp is packed with fun activities learning through play, arts and crafts, painting, dancing, drama, games and storytelling.

Teaching for Children- Mix with native British Children

Children will attend a holiday club that is run from a local primary school, where they will mix with BRITISH CHILDREN. Our school for children is packed with fun activities such as English classes through play, arts and crafts, painting, dancing, drama, games and storytelling. This immersion programme allows children to learn English without realizing. Children will be learning based on the idea that a second language is acquired unconsciously; children are unaware that they are learning a language when they are playing and having fun through exposing them to the right situations and being spoken to in English by the native qualified teachers. We also have our circle time, which is a class focused on learning specific subjects always through play to make sure that the classes are fun and enjoyable for the children.

Camps for Children with British native children

Set amongst pine woods in the South Coast town of Bournemouth, this is holiday childcare for the most discerning of children. Enjoy acres of outdoor space and spacious indoor halls for a full range of holiday activities for children of all interests - from the sporty to the studious, from the carefree to the curious. The building has a fabulous outdoor heated swimming pool (available summer season only). The UK’s no.1 for childcare during the school holidays. Healthy snacks will be provided at the start of each session, giving the children the energy to enjoy all the activities on offer.

british3

From the minute our doors open until the very last child is picked up, every day the camp is packed full to the brim with action, adventure and fun. From the energetic to the creative, from the classics to the unusual, your child can expect to take part in around six engaging activities each day. Our philosophy when it comes to activities is to ensure every session is bursting with energy and fun. We also want children to try things they wouldn’t normally get to do, learn some new skills in the process and go home tired and happy after each day. With a different timetable every day, camp remains fresh, whether your children are new or returning to us for a day, week or the whole season.

Our standard hours for all camps are 9am to 5pm. We also offer extended care between 8am to 9am and from 5pm to 6pm.

Sample activities

Archery, Quad bikes, Cooking and baking, Target golf, Dodgeball, Clay modelling, Circus skills, Make your own juggling balls, Board games, And many more..

Lunch and breaks

Children need to bring a packed lunch with extra snacks for break times and a refillable drinks bottle. Children have an hour for lunch: the first 30 minutes is spent eating with friends and instructors, and then there’s another 30 minutes to run around, play games, or chill out. We also have two 20-minute breaks – one in the morning and one in the afternoon – during which the children can enjoy their snacks. Lunch and breaks are fully supervised and children are encouraged to eat all of their lunch.

Camp staff

At the club your child will be looked after by enthusiastic and experienced staff, all of whom have been carefully selected based on their experience, qualifications, character and attitude. Our camp staff are fully qualified teachers and everyone employed receives an enhanced-DBS clearance and is reference-checked. All staff are interviewed and receive comprehensive in-house training to make sure they can deliver high standards. We encourage our excellent staff to return for future seasons and many do, offering their valuable experience as well as a familiar face to returning children.
