Extraordinary English! Courses with a Difference

Aprile 2013
Study holidays for adults

di ELCS - The English Language Consultancy Service

Many people think that study holidays are a prerogative of young people and that all language schools, especially in summer, are full of teenagers and university students ... well, here we have the usual English “exception that proves the rule”. Torquay International School (TIS) is located on the English Riviera (which boasts the UK’s mildest climate). It offers flexible courses in general English in groups of 4 or 10 students (12 in July/August) on an intensive or a semi-intensive basis with a choice of accommodation to suit everyone. TIS has always attracted more mature students with its wide range of business and professional courses, and it is not unusual to find participants of 35, 45 or 55 years of age on general English courses. Students can choose to stay in the hotel run by the school, in an independent flat, or in a 3, 4 or 5 star family (if the family offers a sea view, private bathroom and swimming pool it rates 5 stars!)
No visit to Devon would be complete without a trip to Dartmoor, where the ponies roam free, a walk round Kent’s Cavern, the series of prehistoric caves under Torquay, a ride on the Dartmouth steam train, or a cream tea of scones, jam and cream (not exactly diet-friendly... but you are on holiday, after all!)
