The Social and Activity Programme is a very important part of the CES experience and we try to make sure we have something for everybody. We really do believe it is important that you also learn about the culture and people you are living with while improving your English.
The summer is a time when university students from all over the world work on improving their language skills and CES welcomes these learners to all of our schools. During the summer we are able to offer students a variety of programme options. It is a good time to study - all our schools are vibrant and exciting places to learn. Our team of 'Yellow Shirts' will do their best to make sure your stay in London is an enjoyable one!
CES takes great pride in the very varied social programmes we organise at all our schools.
During your stay with us we arrange:
- A FREE orientation tour on your first day
- Visits to art galleries and museums
- Tours to local historical and scenic spots, for example, half -day tours to Hampton Court, Greenwich, Thames Cruise, plus River Thames walk and London sightseeing
- Movie afternoons - if you feel like relaxing
- Outdoor sports, for example tennis, football, volleyball and baseball
Night activities include:
- Student parties
- Traditional pub nights
- Live music nights
- Karaoke nights
- International food parties
All through the year we arrange full day tours (£35-£40) on Saturday to places of interest such as Oxford, Cambridge and Brighton. These trips allow you to learn more about British life and culture. We also offer trips through a tour company so you can discover places of interest such as Stonehenge, the Cotswolds and Wales.
If there is something that you are interested in doing while you are with us, just let us know and we will do our best to organise it for you.
NB. Some social activities are free, such as tennis every Monday, movie nights / afternoons and trips to museums. Other activities may incur small expenses. For example, students should buy their own drinks during the pub nights. Most weekend excursions are not free and are not included in course fees (unless otherwise stipulated in group packages). Such activities are pay-as-you-go.
