Vacation English Plus is recommended for students looking to balance studying English with excursions and activities in the afternoon and three evenings a week. You will spend the other evenings in the company of your homestay host learning about home life in England, all in an international environment.
You will work on all of the key skills reading, writing, listening and speaking as well as extending your vocabulary and activating your grammar.
Using a course book written and designed specifically for younger learners, you will use stimulating materials and a variety of methods to ensure fast progression. The lessons have a link to the leisure programme to make a rounded experience and put what is learnt in the classroom into practice.
By the end of the course you can expect to have gained confidence in speaking and listening through the project work in the classroom and by interacting with students at similar age during the activities and excursions.
You will have a better understanding of how to use the English language in everyday life.
We select and design activities that our young learners will enjoy, but that also motivate the practice of their English skills.
Students will benefit from 15 hours a week of lessons and will take part in 5 half day excursions/activities, 3 evening activities and 1 full day excursion per week organised and supervised by the school.
I’d like to take this time to say something about the time I spent in Cape Town, especially the accommodation. Even if my host family is away from here by walking, Ms Bev Lucraft and her mother are friendly and they did everything they could to look after me. I recommend to the LAL to choose that host family to the others students because it is a good stay.
Teachers are good at English and they gave me all English I’m looking for and other facilities to succeed. I’ll recommend other students to take part in LAL.
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.
I thank all the staff of LAL School for my language stay in Cape Town. Teachers are very good and school facilities such as internet connection, activities and the food are satisfactory.
It could be in Portuguese, but I preferred to challenge myself and write my testimonial in English. I had Intensive English and it was four lovely weeks in LAL School. It was really good for me to interact with teachers and other schoolmates. My host mother, Bev and her mom were the best people that I met in Cape Town. I really felt at home. I will miss our conversation. Bev was a really mother for me . I have to say thanks for that.
I enjoyed my stay, I learned many cultures, to talk to many students from different nations, besides just studying English. It’s a good experience.
It was an amazing trip in LAL School. Course and lessons 10/10. Teacher Casey was a very good teacher. Accommodation – Thank you for cleaning all day!
