Concord College is a Quality Education and Quality English accredited college and their English lessons are also accredited by the British Council.

Students are assessed on arrival and are placed in a class of suitable age and English ability. There is a wide range of levels from beginners to advanced.

The timetable consists of 15 hours of classroom based teaching with qualified English teachers and 6 hours of Active English lessons taught by teachers with specialisations in other subjects. The English course is designed to offer varied, current and meaningful topics to engage and inspire all students. It is split into 3 main parts:

- General English lessons aimed at improving grammar and the structure of the language.

- Focus on the 4 skills of reading, writing, speaking and listening; also weekly lessons on British Culture (Current Affairs for Advanced levels).

- “Active English” lessons which encourage students to learn and develop their language skills through activities they enjoy such as Sports, Art, Cookery, Drama, Music, Photography, Fashion and Team Problem Solving. Lessons are structured to provide opportunities for students to practise their spoken English and learn subject-related vocabulary. These options vary from year to year depending on the expertise of our teachers. Students selecting Photography or Music for Active English lessons should bring along their own digital camera or musical instrument if possible.

Progress checks are carried out by the teachers at the end of each week to monitor and review student’s progress and make any necessary adjustments the following week.

All accommodation for students selecting the English programme is on campus.

Students live on campus in modern, well-furnished, single gender boarding houses. Student bedrooms are comfortable and well equipped with our older student accommodation having en suite facilities. Younger students have shared bathroom facilities: this normally means sharing bathroom facilities with, on average, four other students. Bedrooms are cleaned each weekday with bedroom linen changed on a weekly basis; communal areas are cleaned every day. There is a weekly laundry service provided.

Each student bedroom has a security safe for personal possessions – some of these are electronic, others are operated by a key. Each student will be responsible for their own keys. Some bedrooms are opened using an electronic key. All front doors to each boarding house are accessed through an electronic key pad and magnetic locks operate throughout the night for increased protection and security.

House parents reside in each boarding house and they are responsible for the student’s care and welfare whilst they are here.

MEALS

All meals are provided in our dining room with a wide range of healthy options; packed lunches are provided for excursions as required. Special diets are well catered for. We have fruit and refreshments available throughout the day.

very good

Everything was great! But if you ask me would i go there for the second time, i 'd answer no.

Free-time was full of activities, but when we go with a guided tour - there wasn't any guidance at all, what's more, all the excursions always ended up with shopping.

Although, my English skills improved a lot. Teaching staff is rather qualified.

Menu was very good, as well as living conditions in whole.

excellent

I travelled to this school not for the first time, i just love it! A lot of speaking practice, few Russians.

Accommodation and meals were great this time as well.

What about excursions at school - in fact, it wasn't guided tours because staff just took us there and left us for some time, they told nothing special about the sights.

However, i travelled with LinguaTrip and will keep travelling with it's team!
