English Language Programme


The main purpose of ECS - English Country Schools - is to substantially improve the English of the children and teenagers in our care. We do this through a variety of English lessons and educational workshops; and through pupils mixing internationally and speaking conversational English together outside the classroom - on the sports field, in the boarding houses, and during social activities and excursions.

Pupils are taught by qualified language teachers who produce dynamic and creative English lessons. As well as having access to the latest textbooks and technology, our teaching syllabus ensures that there is a great mix of formal grammar teaching, vocabulary learning and multi skills practice in reading, writing, listening and speaking.

We offer a pre-course diagnostic service for teenage pupils, helping us to identify their linguistic strengths and weaknesses to help them get the most from their attendance on our summer course.
