Millfield English Language Holiday Courses
Millfield Virtual Summer School
This summer we are launching the Millfield Virtual Summer School, a two-week online course for ages 10-17 including a minimum of 15 hours of English content per week, activities and an entertaining social programme – the full MELHC experience, but online!
The course is available in two week blocks from Monday 27th July – Sunday 9th August and Monday 10th – Sunday 23rd August, at a cost of £600 for two weeks.
If you would like to discuss the Millfield Virtual Summer School with our team you can contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org
A range of different language activities including ways for students to improve their grammar and vocabulary and develop their communication skills about a variety of topics.
Cambridge Assessment English Exam Practice
Cambridge Assessment English is an internationally recognised examination. This section is for students who are thinking about sitting a Cambridge Assessment English exam in the future.
Students will work on tasks designed to help them prepare for an exam particularly focusing on developing Use of English, Reading and Writing skills. Sections for Cambridge Preliminary B1, Cambridge First B2 and Cambridge Advanced C1.
Global Young Leaders
These tasks are designed to make students learn about themselves and their place in the world and are suitable for students with a minimum level of English of CEFR B2 or above.
Students will have the chance to discuss, explore and challenge sometimes unfamiliar viewpoints and they are encouraged to examine and review ideas when negotiating with people from other backgrounds who may hold conflicting views.
Topics to be explored could include the environment, equality, poverty, press and media, war and technology.
It's really important for us that students are able to interact with each other, and the Millfield Virtual Summer School has been designed with that in mind, providing as many opportunities for students to connect with each other as possible. Uniting everyone through learning and shared experiences, no matter the distance between us – we are always connected.
Following the flexible timetable approach of our Bruton campus, a wide range of English content will be available, meaning students can create a personalised programme to suit their individual needs. Students must complete at least 15 hours of English content per week, but are also able to undertake more English activities each week if they choose.
Students will be allocated a tutor group, and will be able to connect with their tutor and peers through a live chat feature.
On successful completion of the course, all students will receive a report and course certificate.
Our activity programme will be delivered through instructional videos, with options including dance, cooking, art, yoga, football and many more. Students will be able to complete an activity and upload a video of their finished cupcakes, or completed dance routine for example, and can share it with the other students on the course.
Virtual Excursions & Live Events
Mirroring the Millfield English Language Holiday Courses, the Virtual Summer School will have a range of virtual excursions including video tours of popular destinations in the UK, and an entertaining social programme to include live events.
