Active English Learning
a human-centred project
We offer a smart, creative summer language school in a safe, welcoming environment in the South-West of England.
Our focus is on our students language improvement as much as their personal development with a special care for self-confidence, social awareness and personal responsibility.
We achieve our purposes through activity-based programmes that combine creative activities and interactive English tuition.
