English Language Summer School 2019
Tuition and credit
Language tuition normally takes place in small groups of between 8 and 15 participants. There is a strong focus on listening and speaking skills in social and academic situations while reading and writing skills are honed progressively. At higher levels, greater attention is paid to writing for specific and academic purposes. In addition to English language classes, students also attend lectures on British culture and take part in small facilitated conversation groups with a native English speaker. These complementary learning activities enhance students’ knowledge and understanding of the English language and the context in which it is spoken. Self-study sessions are also organised in the well-equipped language laboratory to encourage a greater degree of independence among students.
On successful completion students will be awarded 20 Higher Education credits (=10 ECTS) which can be used towards a Higher Education degree as appropriate.
Social events and weekend trips are included in the price and will take place according to the schedule. We plan to continue our successful country evenings where participants can exercise their newly gained language skills and introduce their country and its culture to their international friends on the course. Our film evenings also offer popular entertainment with a cultural touch; and we can make recommendations for those wishing to enjoy nightlife in Wrexham, nearby Chester, or even further afield!
Students are provided with on-campus accommodation or are allocated to University housing a short distance from the University. All accommodation is single en-suite (private toilet and shower). Usually up to 6 students share a fully equipped kitchen (good for practising your English and making new friends). The Student Village site is close to the learning resources (library, IT), laundry facilities, supermarkets, pubs, restaurants and cafes, and is patrolled 24 hours by security officers. Wi-fi access is available on the entire campus including student accommodation.
Scheduled transfers from/to Manchester airport are included in the programme fees as appropriate. Staff from the Language Centre will support you during your stay in Wrexham. 24-hour emergency numbers will ensure that you will always have somebody to call for help or advice if needed. You will also be advised on free time activities as well as on individual plans and visits.
