Summer Camp Oxford International Goldsmiths University is located in the heart of the UK - in London, in the New Cross area. Here for pupils of 12-17 years, effective and interesting combined programs for learning English are offered: students with any initial level of knowledge are accepted - and for both beginners and "advanced users" an optimal training program will be formed.
London Goldsmiths University was founded in 1891 - today it is part of the University of London as a major educational and research center of global importance. Especially it is worth noting the success of the university in the field of fine arts: many famous artists and actors, artists, designers and sculptors have come out of its walls.
Oxford International carefully monitors the safety and comfort of its charges. Teachers and educators are on duty in the camp around the clock: the conditions for living (comfort, cleanliness and order) are controlled - the ratio of staff to pupils is 1: 5. Students here are provided not only academic and linguistic progress, but also full medical and emotional health, comprehensive household and psychological support.
The summer course of English will help to comprehensively and effectively improve all basic, key skills and abilities:
Before the beginning of the training, all children are divided into groups according to the initial level of knowledge - special testing helps to make learning more productive, quick and comfortable for the students themselves (from Elementary A1 to Proficiency C2). The intensity of the classes is 15 hours per week -20 lessons (9-13 hours plus 14-17: 30 for electives and thematic classes).
The main goal of the vacation combined course (the minimum duration is 2 weeks) is to remove the language barrier and improve pronunciation, listening skills, give children the opportunity to learn fluent and competently, without the difficulty to master spoken English. The vocabulary is also actively replenished: the focus is on the use of English in oral conversation, in everyday everyday situations.
There are also thematic lessons devoted to various aspects of the culture, life and history of Great Britain: literature, history, sports, music and much more. Every day blocks are held to repeat already acquired knowledge so that teachers can track the progress of each group and, if necessary, quickly adjust the curriculum.
Language lessons are held on the campus of the Richard Hoggart Building: before the beginning of the first lesson, the representative of the school conducts a short excursion for beginners so that they can easily navigate the classes. All groups for classes - a maximum of 16 people, international.
The summer camp is held for students of 12-17 years from July 3 to August 14 (arrivals for 2 weeks - the beginning of July 2, 17 and July 31). The cost of staying in a summer camp is £ 800 per week.
Participants in the summer camp live in city residences - like most colleges and universities in major cities and capitals, Goldsmiths College prefers to cooperate with trusted partners rather than maintaining its own large buildings. All student residences are within walking distance from the college - mostly single rooms, many with personal amenities:
