Intensive (14 - 15 years)

The programme consists of 28 lessons per week. The course follows a structured programme of language study which covers the fours skills: speaking, listening, reading and writing. The main emphasis is on developing your confidence and fluency to communicate outside the classroom. Other subjects that will be covered are vocabulary and grammar.
 
For the rest of the day, you can continue your studies or plan your own free time. There are also 3 social activities per week included, which are different every season. Example activities are: ice skating, football, cinema, painting class, cream tea, Eastbourne city tour, trampoline park, fish and chips, mini-golf, a visit to Brighton and many more!

Host family

Junior students will stay in carefully selected English families, many of whom have been known by the school for 10 years or more. Staying with a host family is the best way to experience the English language and culture and practice English outside of class.

Students stay in single rooms, half board or full board included. In peak season (mostly in summer) students can be expected to share a room with a student of the same gender and a different nationality. The bathroom is shared with the host family and/or other students.

Families live an average of 45 minutes from the school by public transport. Students are expected to travel to- and from the school by themselves.
