Manchester is a unique historic city which changed the world by being the first industrialised city – the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution. Manchester is surrounded by beautiful hills and countryside: the Lake District, the Peak District and mountains of North Wales. You will enjoy visiting lush green beauty spots that Britain is proud of.
If you want to practise speaking English, Coniston Hall in Manchester is the place for you. We have young, first class university graduates to teach you at your personal level and to your needs. You will be assigned a personal tutor who can help you in a practical personal way with your language progression. The Trinity College exams can be taken at the end of the course.
Following British university tradition, it is a hall of residence for students at the Manchester universities, with excellent facilities, good food, comfortable individual study bedrooms and common rooms, and beautiful large gardens where you will feel very much at home. We have a good mix of international students and some British students to show you around and who go with you on outings, as well as have English conversations with you.
You will have at least 20 hours classroom teaching a week. Each of the 3 weeks will follow a specific theme: Art and Literature, History and Culture, Sports etc., which is illustrated by visits, trips, tours and guest speakers, so that your experience is vivid and real; not just a textbook and academic exercises.
As well as language and culture there is also lots of fun with sports and games, making use of the excellent facilities that Manchester has to offer.
All this adds up to a unique experience of “total immersion” in a language and culture, which will be very enjoyable from the moment you arrive and will be useful for the rest of your life. You also make friends who you will keep for life. This is an opportunity not to be missed!
