Bournemouth

Bournemouth is the perfect location for a language holiday as the summers are usually warm and sunny which is quite rare in England. The beach is only a short walk from the town centre, so you can make the most out of that sunny weather. The beach offers many interesting attractions, like the Bournemouth Pier. The pretty town centre is perfect for relaxing and shopping after the English lessons. A highlight of the holiday is the trip to England’s capital – the fantastic city of London.

The journey to Bournemouth is either by plane or by coach. The programme starts as soon as you get here. During the week you have 15 English lessons of 45 minutes each. Our teachers focus on communication, so that you can apply everything you’ve learnt in day-to-day situations, e.g. while talking to your host family. Apart from English lessons, we offer a great activity programme: Beach ball, a DVD evening or trips to Corfe Castle or Poole make sure you don’t get bored. All students stay in host families, normally in groups of 2 or 3. You enjoy breakfast with your host family, receive a packed lunch to take to school with you and be home for dinner. During breakfast and dinner you have the opportunity to talk to your host family and get to know the English way of life.

Language course

Language course English

Without the performance pressure from their home schools, students learn that communicating in the foreign language and application of the studied material is enjoyable. A class consists of up to 15 students which are thought at levels A1 to C1. Students take a placement exam on the first day of school in order to allocate them to the right class (possible to take the test online in advance). Besides grammar, communication is focal point. Able and qualified members of staff conduct all classes. Course materials, the course book and a notepad are supplied.

Optional bookings:
Standard course: additional 5 lessons of 45 min each per week
Mini Group Course: additional 5 lessons of 45 min each per week in a group of max. 5 students

Journey

Journey by coach

The journey is undertaken as an overnight coach trip in modern coaches. All journeys comply with the specified driving and rest periods; the coach companies are carefully selected and we have been working with them for many years. The supervision of the students by our teamers starts at the departure location where the student gets on the coach.
The departure points will not exceed 30 kilometers from the city (namend in the advertising), however these are limited by date block and minimum bookings. All departure informations are determind at the latest 10 days before hunt and can be call up in the “Mein GO Reiseportal.”

Self-arranged journey

Self-arranged journey to the language holiday destination is possible. Only the shuttle from Heathrow Airport is included, we do not offer this service for other airports. In order to avoid confusion and additional costs, please contact us prior to booking your own flight.

Accommodation

Accommodation – Homestay

The best way to get to know the culture and language of a country is to stay with a host family. Here you can apply your newly learnt skills and practice your communication skills. You normally stay in rooms of two to three. The host families are carefully and regularly checked and selected.

Board

Full board in the homestay

The typical breakfast and dinner are normally eaten with the host family. The students either receive a packed lunch or prepare it themselves. Based on experience, breakfast and dinner times provide the students with an excellent opportunity to enhance their communication skills and tell the host family about their day

Supervision

Supervised language holiday

The supervision starts when the student boards the coach / for flyers with arrival at the language holiday destination. The teamers are normally at least 20 years old and are first point of contact for our students 24/7. The teamers are trained particularly for their tasks as teamers. Prior to their fist job with us, they need to complete the seminar designed by pedagogic staff. The teamers are responsible for the daily leisure time activity programme, the trips, evening activities and all other activities. The teamers normally speak English with the students; however, German can be used in problem situations if it aids solving the problem.
