Winter Gold Course (14th February ~ 28th February 2021)
Winter is a lovely time to visit York! York is a year-round city so, unlike seaside towns which are closing up for the winter, York continues to be lively, fun and full of variety! The days may be short but the brightly lit centre is full of great shops and lots of cafes for a hot drink between shops and sightseeing
Our Gold Course students love to share their views, experiences and impressions. We want you to be able to do this with confidence!
The afternoon programme for our Winter Gold Course is coming soon!
- 15 hours tuition per week
- Full afternoon cultural programme including farewell lunch (final week)
- Minimum age: 40
- Maximum class size: 14
- Average class size (2019): 4
The Winter Gold Course is a “Family” Gold Course, running at the same time as our October Young learners’ Programme. Classes are shared with students on our Adult English Course.
More about The Gold Course
The Gold Course is a 15 hours per week General English Course. The emphasis is on communication. We want our older students to share what we can offer and be able to share their thoughts and experiences through English.
Our Gold Course students love to share their views, experiences and impressions. We want you to be able to do this with confidence through English.
We know that students on 40+ courses prefer to be in a class with students of a similar age so we guarantee ‘Gold-only” classes whenever there are four or more participants at the same level.
If there are fewer than four participants, Gold Course students may share morning classes with other adult students.
We have some great homestay accommodation but we also have our own hotel, next to the College! However, our Gold Course students really love our hotel, Bishop’s – next door to the College!

The Winter Gold Course runs at the same time as our Young Learners’ Summer Course. This means you can bring your kids (minimum age 10) and they can enjoy a great junior programme while you enjoy your Gold Course!
Children are allowed to stay in Bishop’s Hotel, if sharing with their parents or an adult relative.
If you bring your child you will both get the Accommodation Extra Transfer Service, free of charge! Your child will also have weekday lunches included.
