ministays

Enrol your group to Chaucer College and we will create a package tailored specifically to your length of stay, lesson content and your preferred trips and activities. 

Available for junior groups aged 9 – 17 years and adult groups aged 18+ years.

general english

Chaucer College can help organise General English short-stay courses for both junior and adult groups. Providing a personalised service for each group, we will work with your group leader to organise the students’ preferred trips and activities throughout the duration of their stay.

All packages include:

  • Flexible start dates throughout the year
  • Full board residential or homestay accommodation
  • Mix of classroom based lessons and project work
  • Full day and half day excursions
  • All course materials & end of course certificates

school immersion

For groups of students aged 11 – 17 years, we can provide school integration days with one of our local partner schools. Each student will be partnered with a ‘buddy’ and follow the school’s timetable of lessons and break times, for a true experience of life and learning at an English school.

The group will be asked to share a piece of their cultural background through presentations or performances for a shared cross-cultural experience. 

Our school integration days provide students with the opportunity to study specific school subjects as well as build lifelong friendships with students from England.

practical english teaching course

Delivered by a team of dedicated and suitable qualified staff, with over 26 years’ experience in teaching English to international students, our Practical English Teaching course is designed for non-native elementary and junior high-school teachers of English.

Teachers will learn practical teaching ideas and methodology, practice common classroom instructions, explore language, literature and classroom management techniques whilst developing their own fluency and learning of the English language. 

There is also a possibility to observe lessons in a British primary school, subject to availability.

oet preparation course

The OET examination assesses the English language skills of 12 healthcare professions: dentistry, dietetics, medicine, nursing, occupational therapy, optometry, pharmacy, physiotherapy, podiatry, radiography, speech pathology and veterinary science and is available monthly in 40 countries worldwide. The examination is intended to provide accepting organisations with a reliable assessment of the English language proficiency of health care professionals seeking to register & practise in an English speaking environment.

Our OET preparation course covers all aspects of the OET exam: speaking, reading, listening and writing.

bespoke packages

Aimed at groups of students and schools wanting to study in the UK, where the course length and content are designed specifically to meet the requirements of the group. Our dedicated academic team will work with you to create a course that is truly unique, tailored to meet the interests and specific learning needs of your students.

Whether the group is looking for an intensive academic programme; a fully immersed cultural and trip programme; preparation for a specific examination; or a course focused around a specific theme, sport or project that students are studying or are passionate about.

TRIPS & ACTIVITIES

Dependent on length of stay, groups will usually have one full day trip and one half day trip during every week of their stay. We have a large selection of trips that we can provide and we are also happy to work with your group leader in arranging the excursions that are of most interest to the group.
