Shut Up and Go to Athens!

Athens Acropolis by nightThis August, travel-blogger Jo Franco from Shut Up and Go sets her sights on Athens, the cradle of western civilisation and the birthplace of democracy – and home to our Greek-language school!

Our partners over at the Greek school will be helping her to tell her epsilons from her omicrons and giving her a foundation in a language with a history spanning more than 34 centuries.

Having never studied Greek before, Jo’s excited to have the opportunity to test herself – after all, there’s nothing more thrilling than a rewarding challenge!

French Courses for Irish Leaving Certificate Students

We’re often asked whether we arrange courses for young Irish students who are preparing for the Leaving Certificate.  As we are based in the UK, it’s a common misconception that we only arrange courses for British students.  This definitely isn’t the case!  We have a large Irish client base – so much so that we have a dedicated telephone number for our Irish customers (01 6950417).

All our courses are suitable for students at any stage in their education.  Participants will take a level test prior to starting the course which makes sure they are placed in a group with students of a similar ability.

Winter Sun

Here in the UK we’ve been experiencing a heatwave for the last month or two, and it’s getting hard to remember a time when we couldn’t leave the house without a coat or an umbrella.

The bad news is that the chilly weather will eventually return.  The good news is that we have plenty of winter destinations that will help you to maintain that sun-kissed glow!

Festivals and events throughout the year

If you want to:
– Learn a foreign language, then do so in a country that speaks it.
– Surround yourself with the language as much as possible, then stay with a local host family.
– Fully appreciate a country’s traditions and culture, then take part in a local or national festival!

Many festivals and events celebrate local culture, cuisine, music or art. Europe’s festival season is normally during Spring and Summer, but festivals, local parties, events and celebrations take place all year long throughout the world.

Language courses for older students – Club 50+

club50coupleMost students over 50 years of age are happy to join our normal language courses worldwide, at any of our schools, as the programmes are intended for adults of all ages. Indeed, at most of our schools a significant number of the students are often in their forties, fifties and over. This is especially true for locations that are more preferred by the older student, including Aix en Provence in France and Sorrento in Italy.

Some students aged 50 and above prefer to have their language classes and activities exclusively with students of a similar age. It is for these students that we offer our Club 50+ courses.

English in Liverpool – Friday – my last day

Start reading about my time in Liverpool from Day 1.

Following on from my Thursday post, my last day on an English course in Liverpool has arrived. I am reluctant to say I am sad, as it seems impossible to be sad in Liverpool!

As expected, the last English classes I had were amazing. The day before we talked about reading so, naturally, that Friday we talked about cinema!  Read more…

English in Liverpool – Thursday

Following the great day on Wednesday, Thursday’s class was also extremely interesting! A real generic English lesson! It started by introducing us to the Hemingway “six words” bet. Whether it was false or not, the story goes that the American writer won a bet because he could write a story in just six words: “For sale: baby shoes, never worn”. After we had discussed this short story, we read an essay about a journalistic venture that asked people to write their own story in six words. The results were fascinating. People will always surprise you!

English in Liverpool – Wednesday

The next morning, as promised on Tuesday, our teacher brought back up the story with the random suggested words. He also spent some time going through our homework with us whilst we were engaged in other useful tasks. Actually, in the stories all the verbs were only at Past Simple or, (horror!) at Present Simple!

It was so satisfying to be able to edit and check that texts and it was useful to consolidate all the Narrative Tenses knowledge as well. IMPRESSIVE WORK!
