Vacation English is recommended for students looking to balance studying English with excursions and activities in the afternoon. You will spend evenings in the company of your homestay host. learning about home life in England and practising their language skills, all in an international environment.
You will work on all of the key skills reading, writing, listening and speaking as well as extending your vocabulary and activating your grammar.
Using a course book written and designed specifically for younger learners, you will use stimulating materials and a variety of methods to ensure fast progression. The lessons have a link to the leisure programme to make a rounded experience and put what it learnt in the classroom into practice.
By the end of the course you can expect to have gained confidence in speaking and listening through the project work in the classroom and by interacting with students at similar age during the activities and excursions. You will have a better understanding of how to use the English language in everyday life.
Students will benefit from 15 hours a week of lessons and will take part in 5 half day excursions/activities and 1 full day excursion per week organised and supervised by the school. For sample timetables and excursion calendars, please see flyers for individual schools.
I’m very glad of this school and I love this city. First day, I met many new people who are very friendly. I have only one teacher, but in the corridor, I met many other teachers who talked with me and it was nice. My teacher Heilen is very good teacher.
Every time she helps us with everything. My classmates are friendly and with a positive mood. Every other people in LAL are very kind and I’m very grateful for everything here.
It could be in Portuguese, but I preferred to challenge myself and write my testimonial in English. I had Intensive English and it was four lovely weeks in LAL School. It was really good for me to interact with teachers and other schoolmates. My host mother, Bev and her mom were the best people that I met in Cape Town. I really felt at home. I will miss our conversation. Bev was a really mother for me . I have to say thanks for that.
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 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.
Thank you for all. I really improved my English and I met a lot of amazing people. The room was perfect!
I enjoyed my stay, I learned many cultures, to talk to many students from different nations, besides just studying English. It’s a good experience.
