IN ENGLAND WITH INDEPENDENT ENGLISH Ltd.
If you live within around two hours' flying time from England,
or within reach of the channel tunnel, consider the possibility
of spending one or more long weekends in England, doing a short
intensive course of private lessons in your English teacher's own
home. Even flights from Southern Europe are often cheap enough nowadays
to make this a reasonable proposition.
To arrange this for you, Independent
English has called on the services of one of the foremost
Institutes specialized in this type of program. This Institute recruits
and trains teacher-host families in many locations world-wide, and
also has families in areas near the airports round London. In every
area the Institute has a local organizer as a reference point for
the local teacher-host families. The local organizers are concerned
with your welfare and you can call on them with any queries that
might arise during your stay.
Following the transfer (max 45 minutes) from the airport
to your destination by chauffeur driven car, you will be given a
warm welcome by your professionally qualified teacher host and his
or her family, who will provide you with full board, a single room
and 15 hours of personalized tuition. What you get is a good, thorough,
language immersion, short but intensive, in English. A quick way
to make progress.
And also a really original and very pleasant way of spending
the weekend! A break with your daily routine - a change that is
practically as good as a rest.
All this costs just £ 585 or about 835 euros (plus
the flight at prices that are sometimes very low indeed ).
You will enjoy the hospitality of your teacher and his/her
family from dinner on Thursday to lunch the following Sunday. You
will have two full days plus Sunday morning. You will be able to
take your lessons in the drawing room or in the open air with your
teacher : the details you can decide with him/her directly. ( NB
If you have the time, you can even stay for a whole week at the
same price ).
Nothing is stopping you from repeating the experience as
many times as you wish. For example, if you take five weekends over
six months, you will have accumulated 75 hours of individual tuition,
but you will have only taken five days off work (the Fridays) using
up just one week of your holiday time. There is also the option
of taking 20 hours of lessons instead of 15, which would mean 100
hours over the period for the same one week of holiday time.
The learning benefit gained from repeating the program.
is particularly good, because spacing out short intensive bursts
over a period, alternated with time at home, allows your brain the
time to absorb and digest what you have been learning. Above all,
this is an investment that you are making in yourself, or that your
company is making in you, which will remain with you for the rest
of your life, and will pay you back both in cultural and professional
terms, and in your career, many times over. And it is an investment
that requires very little sacrifice from your day-to-day life.
The following options
are available in the program., with weekly supplements:
20 hours of individual tuition instead of
15: + £100
Family in the London area: + £100
Room with private bathroom ( for exclusive use ): + £140
English for Business course content (designed for business people
and professionals with particular requirements): + £120
