SUMMER CAMPS & BESPOKE GROUPS

"In the heart of the New forest and only minutes from the wonderful coastal beaches"

Summer camps are our most exciting part of the summer, and we absolutely love it!   For us, our students leaving with a smile on their face, having had an amazing experience is what we strive for!  Our summer camps are based on a state-of-the-art University campus with residential on-site accommodation, a canteen, modern classrooms and all a 10-minute bus ride into the seaside town of Bournemouth and the award-winning beaches!

 

Our summer camps are a fantastic mix of English language lessons, excursions, and activities.  It is the perfect way for students to improve their English language and explore the best of the Coastal County of Dorset has to offer.  Our Summer camps run from the first week of July- to the last week August and each slot is a 2-week programme. 

 

UK Guardians offers an amazing range of activities, trips and educational fun for all. We provide bespoke programmes to suit each individual group’s needs.

BESPOKE GROUPS

Any duration, any time of year!

UK Guardians can develop a bespoke programme specifically to suit your individual group. We can adapt from our existing portfolio of previous bespoke groups by adjusting the time, length, and content of any course to meet the needs of your group. Or we can work with you to create a new programme to meet your group’s specific needs. Our previous bespoke groups have enjoyed trips to breath-taking locations such as Scotland, London, Cardiff, and Liverpool.  Bespoke groups can be entirely cultural or a mixture of culture, excursions, and English lessons.   We cater to small groups of around 10 students to much bigger numbers.

TEACHING

Our teaching is based on tried-and-tested methods and has a heavy focus on communication through paired work, group work, games, presentations, and more. The more learners speak the language, the more likely they are to improve, after all!

 

Through this communication focus, our students are able to gain knowledge about and practise new vocabulary, grammar structures and pronunciation, whilst having fun at the same time.

 

Students are split into classes depending on their level of English (based on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages) and their age. This ensures that our teachers can give targeted support for specific language difficulties. Before arrival, we send agents or individual students Placement Tests to help us determine how to class each  student; the test can also be taken on arrival to the UK if necessary.

 

All of our teachers are skilled professionals in the teaching of English as a Foreign Language, and led by an experienced Academic Manager. Whilst your students are studying with us, you can be assured that they will be taught in a safe, fun, and educational environment. All students receive a personalised report from their teacher at the end of the course, detailing some of their strengths and areas that they should work on. We also do our best to encourage our students to continually learn, providing them with tips on how they can best continue their English studies in future.

BESPOKE GROUPS

Our bespoke groups benefit from a completely unique experience that extends to their lessons. No two groups are the same, so our teachers plan lessons to support your learners, their needs, and their interests. A key focus for us is blending what students learn in the classroom to the trips and activities they’ll be taking part in outside of lessons, and encouraging them to practise newly acquired language with their homestay hosts and beyond.

SUMMER CAMPS

Like our bespoke groups, lessons for Summer Camp students are heavily focussed on connecting language acquisition to the variety of trips and activities our learners take part in. Each one has a connected worksheet, contextualising new language with recent or upcoming excursions and events to encourage language use and retention. In most cases, students stay in the same classes, with the same teacher, for their entire stay, building new friendships and generating an engaging classroom atmosphere. Our aim is for our students to return home having had the best summer of their lives, and lessons that they will remember forever!
