Programme

Arrival

Students will be welcomed upon arrival to the hotel where they will register and get their room keys so that they can check in to their rooms.

Welcome

On the first evening there will be a welcome activity which is designed to ensure students have the opportunity to meet staff and other students and get to know more about the centre, its facilities and useful information which will help them during their stay.

First day

Once at school, students will take a one-hour placement test that assesses their grammar, vocabulary, reading, writing, and speaking. Students are tested so they can be placed in the best class for their English level.

They will then attend an induction session delivered by an Embassy Summer staff member, which lasts approximately 30 minutes.

Activities are organised every day, in the mornings, in the afternoons and in the evenings. These activities take place either on-site or off-site the centre. These may include:

  • Sports such as football, table tennis, volleyball and basketball
