- Each Summer school student has 15 hours of tuition (including testing and induction sessions) in English each week. This is divided into 4 lessons of 45 minutes per day
- There are a maximum of 15 students in each class
- There are mixed nationalities in each class

All courses begin on Sunday, with classes starting on Monday. Enrolment during the week is often possible but students may be required to have classes in closed groups until a new teaching week begins.
At the very first English class all summer school students are asked to take an English test. The test includes writing, vocabulary and an oral interview. This allows us to place you in the right class for your ability level.
We also run the "Culture Club", a series of lectures on an interesting range of subjects - for example, a look at the history and significance of the excursion destinations you will go on, such as ‘William Shakespeare and the town of Stratford-upon-Avon’. By attending these lectures and taking part in the lively debates you will also help improve skills such as note-taking and formal listening.
