A Typical Day with Us
Immersion means you make the fastest progress in the shortest possible time. Absolutely no time is wasted. Your programme is designed specifically to give you maximum exposure to the language in a variety of practical scenarios.
Time and time again our clients remark on how effective immersion is in giving them maximum opportunity to practise and interact. They also remark on noticeable improvement in their language skills and confidence levels.
To achieve this we provide you with multiple points of contact with native and non-native English speakers throughout the day. You will have the opportunity to interact with trainers in and outside the training room as well as with other participants. We also organise activities that allow you to talk to local people. All in all you will experience a range of different types of English, both formal and informal, and improve your ability to comprehend and respond accordingly.
Success is due to our highly practical approach to language learning that helps build your confidence and ability quickly.
So what can you expect from a typical day? An extremely intensive but highly rewarding experience…..
You begin your day with breakfast with your hosts and an opportunity to discuss the morning news.
Your driver arrives at your homestay to take you to the city centre for your training.
Your morning training session focuses on developing your active vocabulary, reviewing structures and accuracy, networking skills, listening skills - all in a professional context. You’ll also have the opportunity to network with other participants during a coffee break.
You take a networking lunch at a first-rate local restaurant with the other participants accompanied by a trainer.
Your training resumes and provides you with the opportunity to implement language and skills from the morning session in practical work scenarios like simulated meetings, negotiations and presentations.
The formal training part of the day ends here so you can catch up on your emails and work-related issues.
Three evenings a week we offer you the chance to further practise and develop your communication skills on our social programme. Again you will join your fellow participants and a trainer on social activities that include a walk along the coast, theatre trips, a traditional English pub quiz… and many more. Your driver will meet you afterwards and take you back to your accommodation.
Complete your evening with final conversation practice of the day with your hosts. Participants often remark on the benefits of choosing a homestay in terms of maximising their time here.
