Summer School - Tafira 2017

Immerse your children in English for a month to improve their command of the English Language and have some fun whilst doing so!

Dear parent,

My name is Andrew Bailey and I am the Director of the B.S.G.C. Summer course. I am very pleased to invite your children to attend our course and look forward to welcoming them in July.

Every July we offer a fabulous opportunity for your children to be immersed in English whilst having fun and enjoying the companionship of new friends in a safe and caring learning environment. Our aim is to help all children improve their mastery of the English language in all of its forms; speaking, listening, reading and writing whether they are 3 or 16 years old.

Each day is filled with numerous learning opportunities and fun activities. At least half of the time will be spent in classrooms with qualified, native English Teachers who will help the children gain confidence and fluency in their understanding and speaking of English. Some formal grammar lessons are punctuated with dramatic role plays, quizzes and thematic topic work, all in the target language of English.

The other half of the time will be full sporting and creative activities all taught and supervised through the target language of English. Sports will include basketball, volleyball, football, cricket, badminton, table-tennis, short tennis, yoga. Creative activities may include such fun activities as, cooking, music and dance, art and handicrafts.

Students will enjoy our quality 'home-cooked' lunches, which are included in the price, in our modern dining facilities. Teachers supervise the children's lunch, encouraging them to practice their spoken English in this less formal setting.

In response to suggestions from parents from last year's course, we will be running the course forthe entire month of July. Starting on Monday 3rd July and finishing on Friday 28th July, 4 weeks in total. You may elect to matriculate for the entire course or part thereof depending on your personal plans for the holiday period. The sliding scale of prices is indicated below.

If you have any questions or would like to visit our school to see the facilities and obtain more information, please contact me via e-mail at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to make arrangements.
