Course: 14 - 18yrs Levels A2-C1
Special Focus 'ENGLISH IN ACTION.'
This year's combined course is for students aged 14 who will begin High School in September through to those of 18 yrs who will soon be leaving. The main purpose of the course is to help students gain the confidence to use and improve the English that they know already to communicate fluently in English.
After the 'Basics Boost' of the first three days induction to activate their English, the course will include all the normal exciting activities of AYE (see above) with a special focus on the English of everyday life. Some parts of the course will be taught at two age group levels and others will be for the whole group.

Our final whole group project will be entitled 'Our World - Now and Then, an exploration of the challenges for the 21st Century' and will be created and performed by the group from interviews and then recorded.

Know quite a lot of English but not confident enough to use it? This course is definitely for you!
