Together with Bournemouth and Christchurch, Poole forms the South East Dorset Conurbation. Poole’s natural harbour is one of the largest and most spectacular worldwide. Exploring the harbour, doing water sports or just exploring the town centre and going on a shopping spree in the Dolphin Centre make Poole a great location for a language holiday.
Poole is a town with 150 000 inhabitants in Dorset in South England. To its west lies the picturesque Jurassic Coast, on the east is the lovely town of Bournemouth. Poole is famous for the largest natural harbour. You stay with a local host family, typically with one or two other students. Staying with a host family gives you the perfect opportunity to get to know the English culture and way of life. In the mornings you have lunch with your host family before heading off to school with your packed lunch. In the evenings you eat with the host family and can tell them all about your day and practise what you’ve learnt during the day.
The language lessons are 15 lessons of 45 minutes each per week. On the first day, all students take a test to determine their level of proficiency so they can be placed in the class that fits their needs best. All students are provided with course materials and receive a certificate at the end of the language holiday. After school is when the activity programme starts. Many different activities await, e.g. half-day trips to Lulworth Cove or Durdle Door. Possible evenings activities include a cinema visit, a picnic or bowling. In between you still have plenty of time to make new friends and to explore Poole.
