Getting your English ready for Boarding School
Will YOUR child be starting school in a UK boarding school this September?
Do you want to be confident that they have enough English language to begin?
Do you want to make sure that they will go into English school on their first day really ready and knowing what to say and do?
Then spending a week or two at Fleetham Lodge on our "English for Boarding School" programme will certainly give your child the confidence they will need to face this new chapter in their life.
In a small group of just 4 students, with a teacher who has many years of English language teaching experience, this language programme will not only give your child a huge boost to their English it will also introduce them to life in the UK in a friendly, family setting.
Our emphasis on the English that will be required immediately they start school - the language of the classroom, the vocabulary for a range of different subjects and the English for getting round and about the school - will give your child confidence to meet this new school challenge and help them on those vital early days of settling into a new environment.
I understand the boarding school environment from being a parent of children who attend one!
Our base in Yorkshire is an ideal place to study and absorb the language as well as play tennis, go cycling, visit local places of interest all of which we build into the course. Our aim is to get your child using their English at every opportunity and in many different contexts.
And, we offer a nurturing environment within a family setting so you can be completely confident that your child will be well looked after.
Our home is big enough to offer each of the 4 children their own large bedroom we will study altogether every morning, take all our meals together and then enjoy visits or activities together in the afternoons so that firstly, we will all be speaking English every day and secondly, your child will be engaged in many types of activity which will give them even more chance to speak, but also make sure that they have lots of things to do even when not studying.
This will give maximum exposure to both the language and also the culture and life of the UK.
I know that this type of immersion English works well, I know this because I run these types of programme all the time.
What makes Fleetham Lodge courses effective:
- First and foremost I concentrate on the language your child wants and needs the most
- Secondly, I make sure that the opportunities to speak English here are really maximised - so the mix of formal English lessons and more social English use is important
- Thirdly, I'm always on hand for questions, to correct and to make sure that everyone is happy and engaged
- Finally, we pack our week with so many varied activities that it doesn't feel like learning although it will be tiring - but the kind of tired you get from a really enjoyable, fun-packed day!!
