Academic Classes (Mornings): General English classes using the LINES Syllabus. You will share classes with your teaching partner, which means you plan one 1.5 hour academic lesson per day.

PLEASE NOTE: We do not have a stocked resource room. Instead, to encourage your creativity and ideas, teachers bring and share among the team their own materials and resources for the duration of the summer school.

Workshops (Afternoons): Project-based, communicative English classes. You have individual responsibility for planning and delivering your Workshop sessions. Workshops include Film Production, Fashion Design, Popular Music, Drama as well as Exam Preparation, Creative Writing and Business English.

Academic Excursion: Once a week, you will go on an Academic Excursion. You will be responsible for planning a pre-excursion preparation lesson (part of your 6 hours of tutorials) and for managing your class group during the day.
