At Westbourne Academy we pride ourselves on the quality of the care and education we provide for our students. Experienced and qualified teachers enable students to progress to the best of their abilities.
Caring and experienced welfare staff provide a warmth of atmosphere which enables our students to become totally immersed into the culture and language they are experiencing.
This 20 lesson programme contains the core language content of the English Plus Course. It is most suitable for those students who are allowed to work part time while studying the language. The four lessons each day are held either in the morning or afternoon so employment can be taken up without interfering with studies.
Specific programmes are run on an 9-16 week period for the Cambridge First Certificate, Cambridge Advanced and Cambridge Proficiency examinations. These examinations are taken as part of a General English Programme. Please check the duration below to see how long you must attend a course in order to take a particular examination. An excellent success rate is achieved by careful selection of the required examination at the beginning of the programme, constant counselling by staff on how best to achieve student goals and the provision of appropriate practice both in technique and content of the various examinations. Advice on TOEFL and IELTS can be given to those students who intend to go on to institutes of higher education or university. We can also provide guidance and support to students who want to take Cambridge PET and BEC examinations.
This 40-lesson programme is designed for those who wish to study on a short course of intensive classroom learning of the four skills of the language. Owing to its intensive nature this programme is not available for beginners or very advanced students.
These courses provide opportunities to develop fluency. Oral/aural aspects of the language are emphasised. Grammatical and structural work build on the student's own knowledge to aid ease of communication. Cultural, sports and leisure activities are available so that students following these programmes can combine study with vacation activities.
There are also a Double Summer Course and an Easter Course.
