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.

Social and Cultural Activities
Throughout the year we offer our adult and junior students a wide range of cultural and sporting activities, plus evening activities and half-day and full-day excursions.
We use public transport as much as we can to protect our environment. Where we do need to use a car or coach, we offset our carbon footprint through planting trees.
For our individual adults, we are offering an excursion programme for only £55 per week, to include one full day and two half day excursions. See here for a sample programme.
For our juniors, our social programme is included in the cost of the fees so please ask us for copies of the programme for the weeks you are coming to Totnes.
All our activities are led by our enthusiastic activity staff or teachers who ensure that every fun activity is also a learning opportunity and integrated as much as possible into class lessons.
The activities schedule is constantly changing and varied, according to the seasons and the exciting local events going on at any particular time. Here is just a sample of the type of activities on offer.
