There is more to an LSC language course than just the time in lessons. You will also be spending time in Activities and on Excursions with our carefully picked Activity Leaders.
Here is a sample timetable for our Bristol Summer Centre, you can find sample timetables for each centre on their individual pages under 'Language Courses'. Keep reading below for more information on the social programmes.
These activities give you the chance to practice your English with other students and with our staff in an organic environment. Whether it is a bit of relaxing downtime doing arts and crafts with your new friends, or a more fast-paced whole school competition; students will be socialising and getting the most from their summer.
Our dedicated Activity Managers will make sure that your students get a varied and interesting social programme, with Activity Leaders bringing their special skills to each session. We also ensure there is a mix of small and large activities, meaning students can be learning a new skill in a small group one night and then taking part in a whole school disco the next.
Often one of the most popular elements of the course, excursions give students an opportunity to get off campus and see world-famous sights during their stay. This could be a visit to a world heritage site, a wander around the historic sights of a nearby city or spending a day at the beach. Travelling with well-trained Activity Leaders, students will get to immerse themselves in their environment, using their English and learning along the way.
Most of our excursions also include admission to a local attraction included in the price. For exmaple, rather than visiting London and spending all of their time shopping, students will experience some of the cultural highlights the city has to offer (and there will be time for shopping too). As usual, if there is something specific you would like to do, then this can be arranged in advance.
Our packaged come with most excursions included, but students have the choice to go on optional excursions one day a week. This can be anything from a trip to a local cinema to visiting a nearby theme park of beach, meaning your students get to see what they are more interested in.
Your Activity Leaders will visit you during lessons at the start of each week and advertise what optional excursions are going to be running that weekend. You'll have time to think about what you want to do and will pay for the entrance directly in the centre. Each trip can cost between £5 and £65 each, depending on where the excursion is to.
