Welcome to Vacation English Course

Why Choose Us?

On holiday or a vacation, your main priority is to learn something about the local culture maybe a few useful phrases and to have fun.Shane English School has created and specially designed a Vacation English Course for 13-17-year-olds. Which, we believe, has the perfect balance between formal learning, culture, and fun. Where possible, we mix nationalities in class and activities.  
Students have a level test on their first day, they are then put into a class with students of a similar level and age. Lessons last 3 hours a day during the week. The teachers have experience working with and teaching teenagers. They create fun, fast paced active lessons, the students don’t realise how much they learn during the lessons.

After lunch, Monday to Friday, the students take part in different activities. We aim to balance the activities between culture such as visiting a living museum or a historic castle with playing team games in the park or going to an aquarium. The activities designed to ensure the students are continually learning, discovering and enjoying their stay in the UK. We encourage the students to speak English at all times, this enables them to speak with students from other countries and to make friends.

On Saturdays, the students have a full day activity generally visiting one of the famous English cities. We make sure that there is a London trip after all everyone wants to go to London, where they will see many of the city’s famous landmarks, Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square…. there will be opportunities to take photographs and buy souvenirs. 
Our Vacation English Course has been specially designed to include everything you need. Our Hastings and Caledonian language schools are open all year round (see Terms & Conditions). The Vacation English Course is available for students aged 13-17 years old only. Younger students can be accepted only in a closed group, please contact us for details.
  • Junior groups (minimum 10 students) all year round in our Hastings Schools.
  • No unaccompanied under 16s unless staying with a family member

The Vacation English Course (Teenage Activity Programme) is suitable for organisations who wish to bring groups of teenage students to the UK, for an educational and cultural experience.
