Course Structure

Weekly lessons

The students can study from a choice of lessons relating to:

  • British school life
  • Aspects of British culture
  • History and information related to the trips and activities the students will attend

All lessons will focus on communication, encouraging the students to improve their fluency skills, particularly speaking and listening skills. The students will study elements of British culture through class workshops and project work relating to some of the activities and events outside class time. This will give students an opportunity to recycle new language, working on a specific task.

Throughout their project work students will also practise and develop other useful skills, such as conducting research, designing surveys, analysing and presenting data, taking part in role plays and producing different writing genres.


Students will be given lunch in the school canteen during the week days. If they go on a school trip outside of Canterbury, they will be provided with a packed lunch.

Afternoon Activities and Excursions

During the week LanguageUK organises daily activities and excursions for our students. Some of these are connected with the subjects and topics of the morning classes and students might have to complete tasks related to the trip.

Evening Activities

Students will take part in three weekly evening activities such as music events, sports competitions, quiz nights and debates.

Day Trips

Every Saturday students are taken on a full day trip which might include London, Cambridge, Greenwich or other historical sites.
