Totnes is a charming small city in Southern England. The inhabitants keep on old British tradition while keeping an eye on sustainability. The ruins of a medieval village tower over the city. Our school is situated in a historic building, only 10 minutes away from the city centre. The narrow streets and the river’s banks offer an interesting number of cafès with terrasses, shops and restaurants. During our course for families, the parents will take an adult course while the children will learn English by playing or with group exercises. Children aged 7-10 must be accompanied by a parent during the course. The course for 7-10 aged children takes place separate from the age 11 -17 course. During the afternoon children and teenagers take part in the organised leisure activities. The division of age groups is granted also during the free time program. For example, children will visit a local farm where they will have the chance to caress lambs and goats or groom ponies. Teenagers will have fun playing team sports, dancing at the school disco or organising a theatre play. Students aged 16 onwards, who want to organise their own free time activities, can book an adult course.
