The Film-making Summer School will train students to make films like a professional. They will learn about cinematic technique, story-boarding and more. In addition, they will visit the popular Warner Brothers’ Harry Potter Studio Tour, to see how the experts made those films.
However, our young learners will also have the opportunity of socialising with the rest of the students in the school, through entertaining activities in the afternoons and evenings, excursions and more! All of these are to encourage their confidence while speaking in English.
Film-making is one of the programmes that we offer at LAL Berkhamsted, our Digital Summer School. Discover more about everything your child will learn with us!
We select and design activities that our young learners will enjoy, but that also motivate the practice of their English skills. These just are some of the activities we offer in the Film-making Summer School!

I have been here for almost six months and it was the best experience of my life, because I’ve met a lot of people and from different countries. They are very friendly and lovely, not just the students but the staff and teachers as well.
My Intensive English course covered all the basics in the morning but then lessons were more specific and sophisticated in the afternoon, mixing with students from other classes. The teachers had good British English and classes were mostly a good size (less than 10) during my 3 week stay.
I find it very useful for my career as a lawyer dealing with company law and business contracts. I enrich my vocabulary and get an additional set of information focussed on business issues such as negotiating, dealing with communication breakdowns, structuring e-mails etc. The teachers adapt to the students’ interests.
I learnt how to express myself, how to listen, how to write and to believe in myself. I sincerely think that LAL is a good school, and all of the teachers are so kind, good listeners and understanding. The teachers get along with all of the students.
I’m very glad of this school and I love this city. First day, I met many new people who are very friendly. I have only one teacher, but in the corridor, I met many other teachers who talked with me and it was nice. My teacher Heilen is very good teacher.
Every time she helps us with everything. My classmates are friendly and with a positive mood. Every other people in LAL are very kind and I’m very grateful for everything here.
The English courses and teachers were funny. All staff is very kind, smiled and prepared to help. I was satisfied and felt like at home. The food in lunch was really tasty.
