Sea Side Southampton Programme
Based on the beautiful south coast of England, in the city of Southampton, our Sea Side Summer Programme incorporates a rich schedule of academic, cultural and social activities that will ensure that each student has a once in a lifetime learning experience to cherish and remember. The topics of each lesson complement our cultural excursion and social programme, which enables students to enjoy supervised day trips to some of the UK’s most charming locations including Oxford, London, the New Forest and Bath.
Sea Side Southampton and London Programme
This programme provides the best of both worlds; an opportunity to enjoy a week in Southampton followed by a week in London. The first week is spent in Southampton and incorporates the best parts of our standard Sea Side programme.
This is followed by a week in London, a charming city full of history, sport, music, theatre, museums, iconic landmarks, and dozens of parks- it has so many spectacular sights and attractions, and we try to cram seeing as many of these as we can into just one week! Many of the English lessons are taken outside of the classroom, with activities and workshops held at a variety of different locations to enable students’ first-hand experience of this exciting city!
Parent and Child Programme
OES understand that parents are often keen to embark on the exciting journey of language and culture with their children, and we therefore run a specially developed programme for parents and children to enjoy side-by-side.
Based in Southampton, the parents’ timetable runs concurrently to the students’ timetable, and provides an opportunity to enhance English language skills whilst enjoying British traditions and day trips to premier shopping destinations. By joining the cultural excursion programme they will share the special experience of exploring some of the UK’s most exciting destinations together, and other activities will develop and improve English conversational skills.
