IPC language project - Prof. Susanne Istel & Prof. Claudia Lindorfer

IPC Exeter

14th - 21th April, 2012

 

A one week immersion language project for students aged 13 - 18. Students will live with an English homestay host, attend lessons at IPC each week-day morning and enjoy a programme of afternoon excursions and activities. A week is short enough to fit into a busy school year, and long enough to give students an opportunity to use their English in real situations and gain a new confidence from the consistent exposure to the language. All courses are tailor-made to the needs of the organising teacher and will focus on developing students' spoken English. - IPC Exeter
