Great Ballard 8 – 13 year olds
A beautiful school on the south coast giving our CLAC younger students the best of the English countryside in a very safe and homely environment. Special attention is paid to creating a friendly family atmosphere and to bringing the fun side of learning to classes and activities.
Great Ballard is a 5 minute drive from Slindon College.
Slindon College 13 – 17 year olds
Slindon College is in an impressive historic building with breathtaking views overlooking the south coast. This centre offers our teenage students the opportunity for greater independence and self-motivation whilst still in the safe confines of a highly supervised residential course.
Both schools are one and a half hour drive from Central London.
English Language Learning
At CLAC we believe that language learning should be fun, so CLAC courses combine traditional language lessons with interest based classes (Specialist Workshops) and a varied social programme after classes with a wide range of sports, activities, excursions and special events unique to CLAC.
The main benefits of a CLAC intensive English course are:
• Small classes (maximum 14 students per class)
• 18 hours of language lessons per week
• Language level testing for correct group placement
• Emphasis on communication and speaking
• Learning in a multicultural environment, allowing natural language exchange
• Constant exposure to English through carefully planned classes and social activities
• Staff specially chosen for their qualifications and personality
• Ratio of staff to students 1:4
Specialist Workshops are classes taught by professionals three times per week from 2pm to 3pm. Their purpose is to increase motivation of students by enabling them to practise their English through specific interests that they enjoy. Students can choose from a variety of subjects, some with professional coaching that carry an extra charge.
All students must select ONE option per week via the booking form. Options are:
• CLAC Classics (£0)
• Tennis Coaching (£60)
• Football Coaching (£60)
• Film Academy (£60)
• Health and Fitness (£60)
• Career Preparation (£60)
If you need further information about the Specialist Workshops please contact us on 0044 1223846348.
One day per week there is a full day supervised excursion to such places as London, Brighton, Portsmouth or a well-known attraction. Transport by coach or mini bus is included and highly organised supervision is always by CLAC staff. In the mornings students have the opportunity to visit a museum or local place of interest and in the afternoons supervised shopping. For London we offer some exciting paying options as well as non-paying ones (see Booking Form)
