Lessons – topics each week

All our lessons are designed around different themes to give to the students an opportunity to develop their English skills in motivating and enjoyable ways. We have a topic for each week that ensures students do not repeat work and are always learning new vocabulary and grammar.

The lessons are organized to practise all four skills, develop grammar and expand knowledge of English but focus mainly on speaking and listening.
They offer an opportunity to learn about British culture and values, and are conducted in a natural and relaxing environment and adapted to the age and ability of all students.

Here are some of the main topics:

Music, Youth culture, famous people and drama

Media, cinema, television, radio, poetry and newspapers

Health, wealth and happiness

Space, planets, inventions, gadgets and discoveries

History and bygone times, customs

Sport, entertainment, leisure, occupations

Food-traditional and modern, health and nutrition, restaurants and menus

Nature, flowers, plants, seaside and countryside

Shopping, clothes, fashion and consumerism

Thematic programmes for family

If you are a family and you are thinking of attending our Summer Camp all together, choose our FAMILY PROGRAMME: we warmly welcome parents who want to live this experience with their children.


Our family courses are designed for parents and children aged 5-17 to be able to join programmes at the same time. 

We have the perfect solution for active families who want to combine a family holiday with an English course. By booking an English programme for your family, you will be able to enjoy a dynamic family holiday and learn English at a specialized school at the same time!
The children will take part in a special English course and various activities while parents will attend an English course for adults. Families may or may not want to join our afternoon activities and/or weekend excursions. Some families want to stay in host family accommodation and some prefer hotel or self-catering options.


There are various accommodation options depending on the size of the family:

If you do not want to stay with a host family, we can help you to find the right apartment or hotel. All these options are available for you. It is important to know that parents and students will all be based in the same building but on different floors. Adults and children do not share classes. They can meet up at break time and lunch time. If the children are under 12, they must be accompanied by their parents during the activities and excursions.
