General English for the over 50s
Our two-week programme combines an intensive English course, taught in classes of 4 students maximum, with engaging excursions around the UK’s most varied, beautiful and evocative region.
World-famous writers such as Agatha Christie, Charles Darwin, Rudyard Kipling and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle visited, lived in and loved our beautiful region of the English Riviera. Inspired by this, we have designed the perfect programme for 50+, linking lesson content with afternoon activities to explore the books, lives and favourite places of some of England’s greatest writers.
Aims and objectives
Students gain confidence in using English in a functional and practical way, while enjoying a sample of what life in Devon has to offer.
Some students use this as a springboard on to one of our General English or MAX4 courses, at an appropriate level.
