Award-Winning Junior English Language School
Here at Embassy Summer, we see language as a skill; less of a dry academic subject where the teacher explains structures and students complete exercises, and more of an opportunity to improve confidence in communicating and to practise speaking.

A typical Embassy Summer lesson will start with a speaking activity which will allow students to express their opinions (students might be asked to compare things or recommend something, ask for
opinions, summarise a text or solve a problem). Depending on their level, the teacher might pre-teach some functional phrases or highlight them during a feedback stage; the focus is to provide a platform for real conversation on engaging topics and for the teacher to help them to improve. All our teachers receive training before they start and are supported by our academic team throughout the summer to enable them to deliver practical lessons with clear learning outcomes that improve students’ level of communication.
It’s important for us that students feel comfortable in lessons, that they are placed in classes with a good nationality mix wherever possible, which encourages them to use the language, to share opinions and discuss relevant topics whilst completing personalised communicative tasks. We spend time training and supporting teachers so they can run student-centred lessons that are fun and can give valuable feedback to students which will help them improve the level of their spoken language and allow them to return home with added confidence and a higher level of proficiency.
Immersion in an English or French-speaking environment
Many of the students that join our courses love learning languages and want to immerse themselves in an English or French-speaking environment, but we also have students who struggle with the language and want to leave with a basic operational level - we cater for both.
Online placement test
Whenever possible, we attempt to place students before arrival with an online placement test. Where we are unable to test students prior to their arrival we test them on their first day of lessons.
