On top of that, everyday communication, excursions and evening events are also conducted in English. We’ve already told you that this is a full immersion package!

  • pronunciation improvement

PROJECTS

Each week is devoted to project work: children choose 1 project out of three, and stick with it for the entire 2 week. 

The goal is to finalise a project that you can add to your portfolio/CV, that will add value and open up opportunities, when it’ll come to your future.

Вusiness and marketing: create, plan and run a real event. Art and creativity: re-making famous masterpieces. Unilab: a boot camp on how to get to the best university or course for you.

EXCURSION TO COTSWOLDS

We will visit Cotswolds National Landscape, which has preserved its authenticity since 1380. We will walk along picturesque little streets and look at peculiar local houses, built long ago with a specific purpose (storing wool!), as that used to be a main business direction in the old times.

Cotswolds excursion has 2 options to choose from: a hike and a cycle tour. To get the most of the time among beautiful landscapes, we'll get to the location by bus and spend half of the day there.
