Guide to Levels
You can book 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.
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 stay with a warm and caring host family. These families have all been police-checked and also visited by our accommodation officer.
Host families provide a very homely environment and are ALL within easy walking distance of the school.
You will experience typical English meals (breakfast and dinner) with your host family 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 with your host family. On school days we give you a freshly prepared packed lunch to eat at the school whilst at the weekends your host family will provide your lunches. Special diets, such as coeliac, can be catered for at an extra cost if you tell us in advance.
