What is the course about?

Our over-50s course is designed to deliver magical experiences by bringing together the people, places and English language that will shape the way you interact with your world.

We’re talking about real-life learning experiences, something more than time spent inside the four walls of a classroom. Our Best of the South-West course takes you out of the classroom and puts you in your element with other like-minded people of a similar age: discovering things you have in common, celebrating differences.

English is for sharing and we have created experiences that will make you feel like you belong. The groups are small – a maximum of six – and you’ll be accompanied by a teacher. This is English on the go: making it meaningful, keeping it real.

You’ll visit an English castle, make your own gin, enjoy an English cream tea, indulge in some wine tasting, feast on an English pub lunch and take in the fresh air and scenery of a Dartmoor walk.

But be assured, this is more than a just leisure trip with some English thrown in. Research shows that learning English is more effective when it’s delivered in high context situations. Our expert teachers marry contextualized learning theory with cooperative learning strategies, engaging you through meaningful, interactive and collaborative activities. In short, our teachers enable you to be hands-on with your English and to learn in very natural ways.

Who said learning had to be dull and classroom-bound? Not us! Join us for the Best of the South-West and experience unforgettable English with unforgettable people in unforgettable places.

Because real-life learning resonates long after you have finished your course.
