Quintessentially English

Quintessentially English

(Quintessential means the most perfect/typical example of something)

We chose this title for our general English immersion course because we wanted this, our signature course to represent everything that is English; the language, culture, history, countryside and the people you meet. For the duration of your course you will be immersed in our little corner of England, living our ‘English life’.

As with all our courses, the content will be tailored to you and the areas of your English that you want to improve and develop.

We will spend some time speaking to you about your English and exactly what you want for your language development so that we can make sure that we give you exactly what you need on your course to do this.

Your Lessons

We address speaking, listening reading and writing in English as well as grammar and vocabulary. It is, however, being immersed every day in English that makes the difference!

We use a range of materials and try to use topics that relate to you, your work (if appropriate) your hobbies and your interests. We also watch movies and TV programmes together but the biggest value is in meeting other people and chatting to them.

Outside of Lessons

Meals are taken with me, my husband, any teachers who are here as well as anybody else who is in the house – this could be my daughters or people that we invite. They are wonderful chances to speak and listen and learn even more English.

Your afternoon and evening visits will be a combination of historic country houses, local countryside places, a city visit, the theatre or cinema as well as any seasonal events such as the Great Yorkshire Show if you are here in the summer or a Christmas Fayre in November/December – we try to include any local event that you will find interesting and that will help you to learn more English.

The village itself often has activities which we will include if possible and this would be a good way to continue your conversations with new friends. The pub is another great way to meet local people.

All of this is what makes our courses truly immersion. You will very quickly see a difference in your English.
