Courses

We offer a selection of courses, with programmes which are perfectly tailored to make sure every one of our students gets the most out of their stay in England. Lessons focus on speaking, with optional reading and written homework to be completed after class.

Our teachers have university degrees and are qualified English language teachers. Our Director of Studies is Fiona Cullen BA Hons, PGCE TEFL, MA Linguistics. She is also an author for Cornelsen Schulverlage (the main German educational publisher). You can see her work on their website, here.

The summer 2018 course will run from Sunday 8th July to Saturday 28th July.
Students usually come for 2 or 3 weeks.
A school representative will meet the student at the airport and accompany him/her back to the airport if required.
We offer prospective students and their parents the option of meeting one of our teachers for a free ten-minute introductory session over Skype.
We also offer students a chance to practise their written English with us before they arrive in England. After booking, students are welcome - if they want to - to write us up to 10 emails to practise their written English, and we will respond with corrections and advice. This way, you can start improving your English with us before you even arrive in England!
At English for You, we work to offer more than other schools, whilst keeping our prices lower.

Our summer course is the perfect opportunity for young students to fully immerse themselves in English language and culture, and many of our summer students return year after year, building lasting relationships with their host families, our teachers and the other students on the course.  
We offer courses for school groups from primary schools, secondary schools, colleges and universities.

Some groups organise their own coach transport to and within England. For these groups we organise a language course, accommodation and if requested we help with the organisation of excursions and activities outside of lesson time.

For the groups arriving in England by plane we can also organise coach transport within England (transfers from and to the airport and excursions).
