Get ready to kickstart your language learning
Make the most of spring by improving your English skills.
Every year, our successful Spring Explorer programmes improve students’ English language skills through project-based learning activities, interactive learning and lots of fun and adventure.
We help students become more confident, independent learners, while they learn 21st century skills that will help them in their future learning, life and work.
On this course, students will:
- Gain confidence and become more independent learners and users of the English language
- Develop their English language skills (reading writing, listening, and speaking)
- Improve your vocabulary, pronunciation, and understanding of grammar
- Essential 21st century life skills (communication, critical thinking, collaboration, creativity, and cultural awareness)
- Produce a portfolio of work to show their progress and achievements
- Meet new friends from across the world
Project themes have been created in a way that allows students and teachers to choose the direction that best fits their group’s needs and interests.
This means that every group of students will learn something different, and each student receives a personalised learning experience. For each theme, there will be a main question that guides the project, and the students will work together to make a project outcome.
This approach helps students learning faster and more successfully. It also guarantees that students will learn something new every time.
Learn by doing
The activity programme is an essential part of the course. It helps students to practise their skills and develop natural, fluent language use. Our afternoon electives are designed to improve communication and confidence while developing academic, creative and active skills.
All Spring Explorer students will also enjoy a wide variety of whole-school activities, such as games, competitions, discos and shows.
Gain new life experiences
There is no better way to learn about British life and culture than to experience it for yourself. Study tours play an important role in our way of learning. Students will prepare for their tours in class, complete educational activities during their tour, and discuss them in lessons afterwards.
They will have three-full day study tours to UK destinations, every two weeks.
Enjoy study tours to exciting attractions like:
The London Eye is an iconic part of London’s skyline and has been offering guests a new panoramic view of London.
It has won over 85 awards for national and international tourism, outstanding architectural quality and engineering achievement. In fact, it has become the UK’s most popular visitor attraction.
Science Museum London
The Science Museum is the most visited science and technology museum in Europe. There are over 15,000 objects on display, including world-famous objects such as the Apollo 10 command capsule and Stephenson’s Rocket.
Students can experience what it is like to fly or blast off into space in their stunning 3D and 4D simulators. They can also watch a film on a screen taller than four double-decker buses in the IMAX 3D Cinema.
National History Museum
This impressive museum will inspire the inner historian in students. Their galleries explore the amazing diversity of life in Earth, the planet’s evolution, natural events and the famous scientists who made important discoveries.
Don’t forget to check out the 25.2 metre blue whale skeleton hanging above the galleries!
