English and Culture 50's+ Programme UK only

Based in our beautiful centres of Harrogate and Oxford these two centres are considered by many to be located in the real heart of England, small and unspoilt yet hugely popular with tourists.

This is a programme specifically focused on these who are young of heart and eager to take on new challenges and experiences. The programme is based on the timetable of our Standard Course (09.30-13.00 Monday to Friday) and will focus on the improvement of the participant's general day-to-day use of the English language whilst touching on areas of English life, its history, culture and food. All areas of the English language, linguistic knowledge, vocabulary and communication will be improved through various grammar exercises.

There is a social programme included as part of this course that offers various tours and cultural experiences as well as full day tours on the Saturday mid-course that will combine to make this an unmissable opportunity!
