Choices International’s Sports programme & Activities camp takes place at great locations, such as Mallorca, Madrid, London and Manchester. We are pleased to offer this complete and exclusive programme, where students will have the opportunity to learn English or Spanish, enjoy and practice the sport he/she likes.
Designed for 10 to 17 years old, it is open for children from all over the world to attend and experience a range of activities. Our aim is to develop their language skills, build confidence, practice speaking English or Spanish and create friendships.
Our summer courses provide a full package for our students that include English or Spanish tuition, full board accommodation plus a programme of daytime and evening activities with sightseeing excursions. Students can choose to combine a Sports Specialization with their language study programme or to an intensive specialised sport one.
Students following the English/Spanish language programme receive 15 hours, 6 hours and 5 hours of instruction per week. All our teachers are qualified and the tuition programmes focus on active language skills, especially fluency (speaking and listening), vocabulary extension, grammar and project work.
The English classes generally take place in 3-hour sessions from 9.00 to 12.20. (There are two 10-minute breaks, which start at approximately 10.00 & 11.10 respectively.) These classes take place on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday & Friday. On Wednesday morning all the children attending the summer school attend a seminar dealing with sport-related topics such as nutrition & ethics. The 3 hours this takes, count towards the total of 15 hours mentioned above. (On Wednesday afternoon all children go on an excursion.)
If a large number of children have opted to study English/Spanish, classes will be programmed for the afternoon too. These take place from 14.45 to 18.05, with two 10-minute breaks at approximately 15.45 & 16.55 respectively. However, these students will also attend the Wednesday morning seminar to complete their 15 hours.
All students are tested on their level of English/Spanish on arrival and placed in the appropriate level and age group in each class.
Reports and certificates are issued at the end of the course. Classes will usually contain a maximum of 15 students.
Choices International also offer English language and sightseeing courses for school groups at Easter and throughout the academic year in Manchester and Madrid.
