This is for you if you want to learn English in a relaxed, non-classroom environment and you would like to know more about English culture and history. Based on a carefully-designed in-house syllabus and materials, Cultural Experience offers an alternative and unique way to increase your confidence in speaking and listening and to improve your vocabulary on a wide range of topics not generally covered in classroom-based lessons.
Elke (68 years) from Germany (May 2019) said:
'At the beginning of the week I could not understand the museum information- today (in Exeter Cathedral) I read and understood about Scott of the Antarctic!". Here is Elke's testimonial.
Lessons are taught outside the school and all transport is in our very own hybrid Outlander vehicle, driven by our teacher, so learning takes place from the beginning to the end of your outing. For a sample programme click here- please note that the programme varies depending on the season and any specific interests you may have.
If you only have 1 week available, this course is ideal for you and will ensure you make the most of your time with us. If you are coming for longer, we recommend you combine this course with one of our other programmes.
