October Course

October Course

4th October ~ 8th November 2020

We want our younger students to become confident communicators and confident individuals. In addition to classroom lessons, we have a programme of activities to help our students get the most out of their time in York!

Often away from home for the first time, communicating through English is part of learning self-reliance and the courage to be independent.

Younger students love York; a safe and fun location to learn English.

The course offers a balance of grammar, speaking, reading, writing and listening.

During the course we run afternoon/evening events including visits to the cinema, ten pin bowling, and quizzes, all of which are included in the tuition fees. Each Saturday there is a full day excursion.

Students on our Young Learners Courses are automatically enrolled on ‘Homestay Extra’; this includes full-board, a local bus pass (if needed) and airport transfers.

Lessons Out

York is a great city for students with lots to see and learn from in the streets, museums and historic buildings. To make the most of this, two afternoon lessons each week will be based in a museum, an attraction or involve an activity in the city.
