Our activity staff are selected and trained to offer a variety of engaging on-campus activities and sports. During these sessions, students are always encouraged to use English outside the class. Full and half-day excursions are organized every week to give students the opportunity to experience local and national places of interest. Before each trip, students learn about destinations in class and then share their experiences in a follow-up lesson. Travel is by private coach or public transportation.
When students are not in class, the team of Anglo Activity staff organize an imaginative and varied selection of on-campus activities tailored to group needs. Activities include sports coaching and tournaments (football, basketball, tennis, cricket, swimming and more), zumba and dance sessions, drama workshops, beauty and fashion workshops, nail art workshops, scavenger hunts and all sorts of recreational games.
After dinner, students can get ‘dressed up’ for a themed disco, show off their singing skills at karaoke night, challenge their friends to a quiz or display their talent in the Anglo Talent Show.
All our Activity staff are trained to motivate and encourage the students to use English at all times. Our staff also go through specific training sessions on how to keep the activities safe and under-18 friendly.
Most of our centres are based on university campuses within easy reach of major airports, close to town centres and with a selection of interesting cultural sites nearby.
