Our Film Making course offers students the opportunity to improve their English while learning the skills and techniques necessary to write, perform and shoot a short film.
Students will have access to Berkhamsted School’s modern editing facilities, while LAL will provide an experienced film tutor. Each two week course offers 7 tuition sessions (17.5 hours) plus an excursion to the Warner Brothers Harry Potter Studio.
Students will benefit from 15 hours a week of English lessons and several additional film-making sessions per course.
Students take their usual 15 hours of English tuition in the mornings to help improve their
General English. They will also have several additional sessions in afternoons focusing on the following topics:
• Script writing
• Camera technique
For sample timetables and excursion calendars, please see individual school pages.
I thank all the staff of LAL School for my language stay in Cape Town. Teachers are very good and school facilities such as internet connection, activities and the food are satisfactory.
It was an amazing trip in LAL School. Course and lessons 10/10. Teacher Casey was a very good teacher. Accommodation – Thank you for cleaning all day!
I have been here for almost six months and it was the best experience of my life, because I’ve met a lot of people and from different countries. They are very friendly and lovely, not just the students but the staff and teachers as well.
I am very happy with all the services provided for the school. They have a well prepared staff with excellent strategies to teach and make you feel the best experience learning the new language. they provide comfortable facilities with all the materials needed.
I’d like to take this time to say something about the time I spent in Cape Town, especially the accommodation. Even if my host family is away from here by walking, Ms Bev Lucraft and her mother are friendly and they did everything they could to look after me. I recommend to the LAL to choose that host family to the others students because it is a good stay.
Teachers are good at English and they gave me all English I’m looking for and other facilities to succeed. I’ll recommend other students to take part in LAL.
The English courses and teachers were funny. All staff is very kind, smiled and prepared to help. I was satisfied and felt like at home. The food in lunch was really tasty.
