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.

Adult IELTS, Cambridge or Language Cert online course
This course helps to prepare you for IELTS, Cambridge and Language Cert exams.
IELTS is one of the best known English language tests for second language users.
Cambridge FCE and CAE are also popular English level exams- these exams require a complete overview of grammar and vocabulary at different levels and are a great way to really make sure you cover key language points. IELTS is more of a snapshot of your level at any time; FCE or CAE give evidence that you've covered the syllabus in real detail.
Language Cert is a useful, relatively new exam which we can run from the school when you want to do it- it's a very useful, reasonably-priced, easy to set up external validation of your English level.
Passing any of the above tests/ exams will give you what you need to show you have the right English level to attend a university course in the UK. Or if you want to work in an English speaking company or country, and adding an English certificate to your CV is a plus!
Our course offers 1.5 hours tuition every day from Monday to Friday - Monday, Wednesday and Friday lessons focus on General English skills- reading, writing, listening and speaking, grammar development and vocabulary extension. Tuesday and Thursday lessons focus on exam preparation and practice for the exams above. You have two written pieces of homework weekly which focus on the particular exam that you are preparing for.
Please note we are not currently claiming British Council accreditation for our online courses.
