Summer Adult English 2020

Our Summer Adult English programme includes a balance of grammar, speaking, reading, listening, writing. Students receive 22.5 hours of tuition each week. Adult students will almost always share classes with 16 & 17 year old students following the Young Learner’s Summer Course.

After lessons, we offer a variety of after-class activities and on three evenings each week we arrange optional activities (included in the fee).  We also run a series of extra evening events (for a small additional payment) in the City. Each Saturday there is a optional full day excursion (included in the fee).

Lessons Out
York is a really great city for students with lots to see and learn from in the streets, museums and historic buildings. To make the most of this, Lessons Out will be based in a museum, an attraction in the City.

Summer Adult English: Full-day programme

Students receive 22.5 hours of tuition per week. Our programme includes a balance of grammar, speaking, reading, listening and writing.

Like all Melton College courses, the tuition times are teaching time and do not include breaks or preparation.

The course includes three evening activities and a Saturday Excursion, these are optional for adult students. We also arrange additional activities on the other evenings each week (for an additional payment) in the City (these cannot be booked in advance and are subject to demand).

Melton E-learning

All General English Course students can use the Melton College Guided e-learning system. This virtual environment helps students plan their studies, contact other students and participate in the College’s social life. Students continue to have access to the system for 3 months after their departure.
