- The course consists of 15 hours of small group language tuition ( 4-6 students) per week and 15 hours of afternoon activities .
Before arrival in the UK we ask you to complete an online assessment test and an introductory report so that we can find out as much about you as we can before arrival in the UK.
Timetable: Lessons take place in the morning from 9.30 – 12.30. Students have a packed lunch and then go on a supervised excursion with their teacher or teachers assistant from 13.00 – 16.00. Students also have two afternoons of communication activities which are designed by their teacher before arrival . After the excursion/ communication activity the students are taken back to their host family where they spend time with the host family .
Homework: Students are asked to complete homework based on any new language they have learnt or to complete project work which they have started in the class time.
Progress: We assess each student before they come on a summer vacation course with a CEF level ( Common European Framework) . During an immersion course all students make huge progress in all skills but especially speaking and listening as they are “ living” English 24 hours a day for seven days a week – 24:7 as we say! The teacher assesses the student on a daily basis and records progress made and areas to work on .
End of Course Reports and Certificate: At the end of the course , your son/daughter receives an End of Course Report which details their progress and give recommendations for further study and Daily Lesson Reports which records language covered and daily activities. We also provide an End of Course Certificate which shows the level achieved with a CEF level. ( Common European Framework)
The welfare of our students in a main priority. The most important aspect of their stay is that they are happy and comfortable with their host family. We make sure that students receive the best possible care while they are in the UK. Our host families are all carefully chosen and inspected by us. We live in a small area so our hosts are all known by members of the Heritage English team before we recruit them to look after our students. All families are DAB checked ( Disclosure and Barring Service) and we make regular checks by talking to student on a daily basis and by visiting the host family whilst the student is here. We ask the students to inform one of the Heritage English team of any worries that they have so that we can deal with this immediately before a worry becomes a problem.
