2 Weeks in Falmouth

Our language and leisure programme has been designed to give you an integrated learning experience. Each day is made up of a combination of engaging classroom-based English language lessons, workshops, activities and excursions. All this gives you the opportunity to acquire new language and practice your communication skills with English-speakers.

Activities and Excursions

We aim to localise our leisure programme as much as possible to give students the chance to explore the culture and history on their doorstep.

Falmouth offers so many opportunities!

It’s our first year in Falmouth and we’ll be collaborating with the university’s marine science department to get a real feel for what’s happening along the coastline and on the beaches. Students will also get the chance to visit local historical sites and cities.

The Anglo programme includes participation in half-day Rockpooling and Beach Clean projects and a half-day visit to Truro and its cathedral.

At the weekends, we go a bit further afield and there are full-day excursions to the Eden Project and the Flambards Experience + Helston. New to Anglo and exclusive to the Falmouth programme, there is a full day of marine/water sports at a local beach.

In the evenings, there’s the opportunity to participate in talent shows, find new friends in speed dating, play bingo, test your knowledge in the weekly quiz and show off your dance moves at the disco.

Caring and Attentive Teachers and Staff

Our summer team have been selected for their experience in and suitability for working with young people.

Anglo centre mangers are responsible for ensuring the smooth-running of the programme and most have had many years of experience on summer courses.

Quite a few of our teaching staff have worked with us for several summers as well, and have been involved in developing the syllabus by contributing ideas they have tried and tested at centre.

We are also proud that many of our activity team are returners and that some move into management positions, using their experience to make the programme better and safer each year.
