Social programme

ECS offers the perfect balance between learning and sports / free time activities.

Social activities are arranged each evening for each age group. The emphasis is on fun, within a safe, supervised environment so that everyone will have fun, make friends, develop confidence and practise their English.

Each course has its own Social Organiser who makes sure activities are suitable for the age group. Examples of evening activities are:

7 - 10 year olds:

disco party games, parachute games, Bear Hunt, talent show, camp fire and songs, obstacle course, Where's Wally, crazy sports, water slide, fashion show, Hunt the Teacher, movie night.

11 - 14 & 14 - 17 year olds:

sushi-making, formal dinner and photo shoot, Karaoke, James Bond Casino, talent shows, camp fire, obstacle course, Team Challenge, quiz night, Blind Date, Selfie Challenge, movie night, International Evening, yoga and relaxation, girls' pamper night, crazy sports, Capture the Flag - and more!

Sometimes all three age groups come together for an extravaganza such as The ECS English Country Fayre: coconut shy, face painting, bouncy castle, apple bobbing, guess the number of sweets and other old favourites all provided to the cool beat of Dom's disco sound!

For the End of Course review each class creates, rehearses and present a short performance and in addition there are presentations by pupils from workshops such as drama and photography and individual performances of music and dance. Certificates are awarded for notable contributions and achievements. Food is provided by pupils from the cookery workshop. The review usually finishes with a musical slideshow showing highlights from the course; memories are made and, with the course drawing to an end, many tears are shed..
