Summertime is always a great opportunity for students to develop and acquire new knowledge. In language camps, students can not only improve their language skills but also communicate with peers from around the world. They can also get acquainted with the culture and traditions of Great Britain.
There are many camps aimed at learning languages. But we would like to highlight 3 most famous among them:
- Studio Cambridge;
- St Giles;
- Embassy Summer.
The best and most famous language camps in UK
Studio Cambridge was founded in 1954. Nowadays it is one of the oldest language centres in the UK. This educational institution has gained an impeccable reputation and has earned special respect among foreign students. Studio Cambridge takes place at Ridley Hall College. It was founded in 1881. This camp is located in the centre of Cambridge and is surrounded by its own beautiful gardens. The program is held every summer for 48 years and enjoys a well-deserved reputation among foreign students. The college has 11 study rooms, a spacious lecture hall and student lounge. The main attractions of the city can be reached in just 5 minutes.
St Giles International
The St Giles chain of training centres has over 50 years of experience in teaching English and many schools in several English-speaking countries. Flexible educational programs, an individual approach to learning, modern methods of working with students and the invariably friendly and highly qualified teaching staff have led to the success and popularity of these educational institutions.
St Giles International is housed in a century-old building that harmoniously combines traditional English architecture with modern teaching equipment. The school is located in the heart of London within walking distance from such famous places as the British Museum, Covent Garden, West End and Oxford Street. No wonder the area is considered the centre of intellectual and cultural life in London — there are many museums, theatres and concert venues.
The school has everything necessary for a full-fledged educational process: spacious study rooms, computer classes with Internet access, a research centre, a library, a digital language lab and a student bookstore. This is perhaps one of the best camps in UK. A roof garden and a small cosy cafe are provided for students to relax.
Embassy Summer English courses are held at University College London, which holds an honourable place from year to year in the top five of the best universities in the United Kingdom. It is among the 25 best higher education institutions in the world. Lessons are held in the main academic building of University College London. It is a monumental old building with its own garden. The university was founded in 1826 and during its existence has become one of the most prestigious universities in the UK. It is located in the heart of the city — the main attractions of the British capital can be reached on foot in just a few minutes.
