Worthing is a beautiful coastal town situated only 90 minutes from London and is known for having one of the sunniest climates in the UK. It has long been a popular place to escape from the noise and bright lights of the city, and Oscar Wilde famously wrote The Importance of Being Earnest while on holiday there. Why not enjoy the tranquillity of this wonderful seaside town and experience the excitement of London at the weekend?
We know you’ll have a fantastic time in this great little town. The college has three beautifully restored Victorian mansion houses with study, leisure and social facilities and a fantastic activity programme all year.

The Standard General English Course takes place every morning from Monday to Friday, leaving you free every afternoon to join the Social programme or study in our Self-Access facilities.
Your morning lessons are divided into two parts and you will usually be taught by two different teachers.
In the first lesson the teacher concentrates on improving your accuracy, focusing primarily on grammar, reading and writing. The course-book is the basis for much of this lesson, with other resources also used.
The second session concentrates on improving your overall communicative proficiency and fluency, focusing on your listening, speaking and vocabulary and consolidating the first part of the morning. You will also be able to work on specific pronunciation difficulties and improve the language you will use in real-life situations.
Students taking this course for longer periods (8 - 25 weeks) will have monthly assessments to make sure they are constantly improving. Our Director of Studies arranges a weekly meeting time and place where all students can come and discuss any questions or problems.
If you plan to go to university in either Ireland or the UK then you need to take the IELTS examination.
CES will help you achieve your goal.
IELTS is the most widely recognised university entry requirement in Europe. Most universities require a level of between 5.5 and 7.5. Exams take place at an external centre on a regular basis, usually once or twice a month.
Students follow the Standard General English course in the mornings and take the IELTS preparation course three afternoons per week on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. If you are starting your course at a low level you will be carefully encouraged and monitored in preparation for joining an IELTS Preparation Course. The ideal level for joining this course is intermediate (B1).
Your course will focus on improving your level of English as well as on developing your exam techniques. At the end of each week, you will be given a test, and a complete practice IELTS examination during the last week of the course. If you plan to take the exam while you are studying with CES, the Director of Studies will help you with registration.

CES' International Junior Summer School combines expert English language training with a full programme of sports, activities and cultural visits. The morning lessons focus on developing the core language skills with particular emphasis given to speaking and listening. Vocabulary and pronunciation work are integrated into each session. We use role plays, project work and task based activities to develop students' communicative skills. Students will also be asked to research and give weekly presentations on various aspects of British culture, myth and legend.
