LanguageUK offers a unique experience for students aged between 13 to 16 to improve their English skills whilst experiencing life at a British secondary school. The classes focus on aspects of British culture and history and the students will also have the opportunity to take part in workshops with British school pupils. The themes of the classes are also related to the experience of staying in the UK. Students can register from 1 to 4 weeks and the maximum number of students for each week is just 60.
The Abbey school is a British State school for 12 to 18-year-old pupils.
The school describes itself as a vibrant school offering exciting opportunities to their students whatever their ability. The Abbey school have welcomed LanguageUK and see this partnership as a valuable opportunity and experience for both British and foreign students.
Wherever possible, both LanguageUK and the Abbey School will aim to work alongside each other and try to encourage the students to meet. Every day the LanguageUK students will eat in the school canteen alongside the British school pupils.
Other possibilities with the Abbey school may include attending a school assembly, taking part in a school sports activity or a lesson. What we are able to organise is subject to the Abbey School’s timetable and holiday periods.
