International English Summer Course
3 – 25 August 2019
The objective of the course is to improve dramatically the spoken English of course participants. The course is residential, for students between 16 and 24 years of age. Participants live in Netherhall House with students from all over the world. The common language of the House is English. Opportunities are available to play football, tennis, squash, basketball, swimming, cricket and other sports.
It is the task of the teachers to ensure that each student obtains as much from the course as possible. The course leader will meet weekly with each student (in addition to being available at other times) to receive feedback and to enable personalised alterations to be made to the course programme. Students are encouraged to take their meals with the teachers.
On weekdays and Saturdays there are classes from 9.15am until 1pm. After lunch students may either join an organised tour of a cultural site in London or participate in sports activities. After dinner each evening in previous years, a variety of non obligatory courses were organised for the students on subjects such as: Introduction to the History of Man, History of the Church, Introduction to Medicine, Introduction to Aerodynamics and the Theory of Evolution and its compatibility with Christian teaching.
Netherhall House is an intercollegiate university residence situated in a modern complex in an attractive residential area of London, with over 50 years of experience as a language institution. It is part of Netherhall Educational Association, a registered charity, and is open to students of all nationalities. Activities of a spiritual and doctrinal nature are entrusted to Opus Dei, a Personal Prelature of the Catholic Church.
