Since 1965 we have been organising language programmes for young people. You can expect a high quality programme based on our years of experience, the strength of our reputation and our attention to detail.
The exceptional Stowe School is one of England’s most prestigious boarding schools and is set in 750 acres of outstanding parkland. It has impressive sporting and leisure facilities. Stowe is easily accessible – it is 6km from the town of Buckingham, 45 minutes from Oxford and 90 minutes from London. We have ensuite accommodation available for students aged 16 and 17.
Students are taught in small (maximum 12) multi-national groups. We focus on improving communication skills, activating existing knowledge and building confidence. Throughout the course, students create a Personal Portfolio and Diary to record their learning and achievements. Students can expect to make good progress every week of their course.
On our All English courses students are immersed in a stimulating educational environment. These intensive, action-packed courses include 21 hours per week of structured English language lessons and team performance projects, plus six hours of afternoon sports or activities geared to the students' interests followed by lively activities every evening.
