Schedule
08:30-11:45 or 13:15-16:30 (“zigzag” schedule - classes alternate between mornings and afternoons)

Schedule may vary depending on student’s level and time of year.
Classes are organised by level, according to the results of the test taken on the first day. The dynamic teachers will motivate you thanks to interactive lessons and exciting topics. Classes take place from Monday to Friday and are organised in a "zig-zag" system, which means they take place in the morning one week, in the afternoon the following week, and so on. The 20 weekly lessons of 45 minutes are usually held either from 8:30h-11:45h or from 13:15-16:30h.
Each week covers a different theme and what is learnt in class is linked with activities outside of the classroom. You will speak English without even realising it!

Das Angebot an vegetarischem Essen der Kantine in der Schule in Ovingdean war nicht sehr gut, die Lehrer und auch Betreuer jedoch sehr freundlich und gute Ansprechpartner. An der Organisation der Ausflüge (z.B. lange Wartezeit während der Registrierung). Man konnte während des Unterrichts viel dazu lernen und ich finde die Metode, über die Woche in kleinen Gruppen an einem projekt zu arbeiten und diese Arbeit am Emde der Woche vorzustellen, sehr gut.

Super séjour linguistique, très bonne équipe d’encadrant. École à 3 minutes de la plage, salle de classe bien équipée. Super famille, très bon contact avec les parents et très accueillant. Mais très peu de discussion avec les enfants. De très bonne sorties qui permettent de créer des liens avec les autres étudiants. Et le personnel était très disponible. Je recommande à 100% ce voyage.

Host family
Carefully selected, the host families offer you a safe setting and a rich cultural experience during your stay in Brighton. You will stay in a twin bedroom (with another student of the same sex), share the common rooms with your hosts and receive breakfast and dinner at the host family. During the week, lunch is taken on campus or in various restaurants in town (depending on the dates of the programme) and at weekends, students receive a packed lunch for the excursion. Immersing yourself in the daily life of an English family means you can learn more about its customs and traditions while practising English in a relaxed setting. The school does its best not to place two students of the same mother tongue in the same family.

Discover this beautiful seaside region in southern England together with your new international friends! Many excursions and cultural visits are offered, as well as leisure activities at the course centre (disco, laser tag, quiz night, etc.). During the week, you can spend your free time practising sports on the superb campus facilities, but be sure to save some time for shopping in Brighton as the town is renowned for its numerous shops. You will also take part in an excursion to London, very popular with international students, in order to explore the vibrant English capital.
