Guide to Levels
We have been taking care of junior students and providing English language courses since 1966. Our Junior Summer Courses run from the middle of June until the end of August. These courses are for individual students aged 10 to 15 (or 9 to 16 in a groups with their own group leader). We are very experienced in providing our junior students with a great mix of educational and social learning skills that we hope will be with them forever.
You can book summer courses for a minimum of one week but many students choose to stay for longer. Students have 15 one-hour lessons each week, from Monday to Friday. Classes are small, averaging 12 students per class (maximum 16).
We know how important it is for our students to be happy where they are living so that they have good memories to take home. This is why we choose all of our homestay accommodation with special care. Students studying at Southbourne School of English stay with a warm and caring host. Any host accommodating under 18s have all been police-checked and also visited by our accommodation officer.
Hosts provide a very homely environment and are ALL within easy walking distance of the school.
You will experience typical British meals (breakfast and dinner) with your host every day. British meals have changed a lot over the past few years! Although we love fish and chips that is not all we eat! British food is now very cosmopolitan and you will experience a wide variety of international cuisine. On school days we give you a freshly prepared packed lunch to eat at the school whilst at the weekends your host will provide your lunches. Special diets, such as coeliac, can be catered for at an extra cost if you tell us in advance.
