We organise and run full-immersion English weeks in high schools and middle schools throughout Europe.
A team of professional, native-speaker, English teachers travels to the host school, stays with local host families, and over the course of the week, delivers an amazing array of activities designed to get students speaking and having fun with English.
Most schools opt to host our on-site projects during holidays and other breaks in the academic year, but we can organize intensive English weeks at any time of the year.
Why full-immersion weeks?
Full immersion weeks allow students to become accustomed to speaking in English without giving timidity or self-doubt time to return between lessons. This consistency fosters confidence and fluency, enabling students to get more out of each activity.
Thanks to the intensity of the projects, learners are able develop and hone abilities quickly. Students can further leverage these new skills and confidence to build momentum and to make dramatic progress in a short period.
What makes OUR projects so special?
We take pride in our meticulous teacher selection process. We choose qualified and experienced educators with the right skills, attitude, and energy to keep students inspired and engaged throughout the week.
Our staff exclusively communicate in English, creating a fully immersive environment for students.
Say goodbye to traditional textbooks and mundane grammar exercises. Our approach revolves around providing students with real and authentic opportunities to practice the language. Through problem-solving, role plays, drama, debates, games, and mysteries, our teachers foster an atmosphere where students produce the target language and communicate successfully while having a blast.
Our commitment to small class sizes leads to more homogeneity of language levels, ensuring that every student progresses at a pace that suits them.
Moreover, with fewer students in each group, our teachers can devote more individual attention to each student, providing ample opportunities for interaction and making speaking practice highly productive.
Typically, we build a course according to students’ levels, and the teaching programme followed during the school year. This strategy facilitates a focus on listening and speaking skills using familiar language and makes activities more accessible, relevant, and rewarding.
The super-teachers rotate between groups in the course of each day. For students this means exposure to multiple accents, energies and teaching styles.
The friendly and safe atmosphere created by our staff promotes linguistic risk-taking; as well as enjoying an increase in confidence, participants will develop a willingness to experiment and have fun with English.
