Learning centre

Address:
EC Young Learners Frensham
Frensham Heights Road
Rowledge, Farnham
GU10 4EA, United Kingdom

Course: General English
20 lessons per week (a total of 15 hours)
1 lesson = 45 minutes

The course will help improve English language skills by focusing on the key areas: reading, writing, speaking and listening. A strong focus is placed on speech and using the language confidently and fluently.

Lessons are engaging and designed especially for young learners. Teachers aim to satisfy any interest, with a focus on communication to boost students' confidence when using English in practical situations. Regular tests and conversations classes help to ensure that students improve their English as much as possible. 

Our dedicated and professional teaching staff provide feedback and support and help students build confidence to speak English.

All lessons and activities work together.Each week covers a different theme and what's learnt in class is linked with activities outside of the classroom.That means learners get to use and practise their skills every single day.

If the school is busy, EC will utilise a Double Banking timetable. Put simply, students attend morning sessions of classes one week, the next week they attend afternoon sessions.

 

First Day

On the first day, all students sit for a placement test, allowing academic staff to place students in the relevant group for their ability. In the afternoon students will be given an orientation tour and in the evening a Welcome party is to be held.

Welfare, Rules and Disciplinary Action

Curfew times

  • Ages 13-15: 10 pm
  • Ages 16-17: 11 pm

Alcohol consumption

Any EC student on the Young Learners Programme caught consuming alcohol during their stay risks being expelled from the school and repatriated to their home country. No alcohol consumption is permitted during the programme.

Drugs

The consumption of any illegal drugs will result in the immediate expulsion and repatriation of the student and the possible intervention of the police.

Smoking

Smoking is NOT allowed at any time during the programme.

Customer Complaints

At EC, we endeavour to provide our students with the highest possible level of service. If, however, a student is unsatisfied with any aspect of their programme with EC, we ask that they inform us immediately. Most problems are small and can be quickly resolved by our staff members. During the first week of school, all students are given an Initial on-line Course Evaluation form, in which they are asked to evaluate various aspects of their stay, such as tuition, accommodation and leisure. The form also allows students the opportunity to bring to our attention anything that is not to their satisfaction should they feel unable to speak to us directly. Solutions to any issues will be provided and all necessary parties will be notified when applicable. Students are also requested to complete an on-line End of Course Evaluation form at the end of their stay such that they have the opportunity to provide EC with general feedback before returning to their home country.

Accommodation Rules

  • Students must keep their room neat and tidy, including making their own bed every morning
  • Curfew times must be respected by all students
  • Students who are not living in the residence are not allowed to enter in any of the rooms
  • Girls are not allowed to stay in the boys’ rooms and vice versa
  • Students are liable for any damages/breakages to school and accommodation property
  • Smoking is NOT allowed at any time
  • 13-15 years old students are only allowed off campus during EC Supervised activities

Expulsion

EC reserves the right to expel and repatriate a student at his/her own expense for any of the following reasons:

  • Possession of any illegal drugs
  • Drinking or bringing alcohol on to any EC premises
  • Malicious damage to school property or place of accommodation
  • If the student is a danger to his/her own safety or that of other students
  • Breaking British law
  • Repeated failure to attend academic lessons and/or social activities
  • Bullying, racism, sexual harassment, violence

In any of the above circumstances the student will be informed that their stay is going to be terminated with immediate effect. EC will also inform the student’s agent of the student’s behaviour and the course of action to be taken. The earliest flight available will be booked at the student's expense and an EC staff member will accompany the student to the airport to ensure that the student leaves the country. Following such action EC will terminate all relationships with the student and will be unable to take further responsibility for the student. No refunds will be given to any students who have been expelled.

Course Certificate
Students must attend all lessons and organised activities in order to receive their End of Course Certificate. The certificate will be given out on the last day of school.

Discipline
In order to manage student behaviour, EC staff may issue a formal warning, notify parents, ban students from an activity or withhold the End of Course certificate, if the student misbehaves.

Damages 

Students are liable for any damages/breakages caused to school property. Payment for damages must be effected immediately and the residence staff will not allow the students to leave the residence unless payment has been made. A damage deposit form must be completed on the first day of school. If students do not have a credit/debit card of their own, it is important that they bring details of a relative's/friend's credit/debit card, with a letter of authority to use this card.
