Our Classes

Note this is only a guide, not a guarantee.

Our Classes

We offer two distinct classes at the School of English and Culture:  Open English and Open Minds. Both are fundamentally informed and inspired by the same philosophy, but have a different academic focus; Open English is focused language acquisition, while Open Minds focuses on building creativity and critical-thinking skills

We believe that the classroom should be a vibrant forum for debate and discussion where the students’ views are challenged and developed through lively academic discourse on subject matter that is designed to elevate the learning experience by being relevant, authentic and engaging.

The classroom-based learning makes a vital contribution to our broader aims as a course: to help the student to grow and develop as a person, to gain independence of thought, to grow in confidence and to improve their capacity for critical-thinking.   

In order to achieve these aims we have designed two distinct courses designed to target the specific needs and motivations of the student. These courses have the same fundamental philosophy and format. Both courses include the following:

Morning - 15hrs language tuition per week, all classroom materials included
Afternoon - the students will integrate with native English speakers of the same age and choose from a large range of fun cultural courses
Evening entertainment, cultural events and academic enrichment activities
Weekend excursions, activities and adventures that include camping and surfing on the Welsh coast
Accommodation under pastoral care provided by the course tutors
Full Board 
Graded leaving certificate provided on completion of the course
Boutique in size, limit of 90 students per week
