Year Round Junior & Adult Groups

General English Short Stay Courses

Available throughout the year at either one of our centres in Canterbury or Broadstairs, Chaucer College can help organise and deliver general English short stay courses of between 5 nights and up to 4 weeks. We have created standard packages for our most popular length of stays to include the following:

  • Mix of classroom based lessons, project work, trips & activities
  • Available to students from elementary to advanced level
  • All course materials provided
  • End of course certificate
  • Classes divided according to placement tests
  • Maximum 14 students per class

 

Providing a personalised service for each group and their students, we will work with the group leader to organise the group’s preferred trips and activities during the course of their stay.

Closed groups can choose to arrive and depart on any day of the week and choose to stay in either full board residential or homestay accommodation.
