For the past year, Greenfields Short Term EFL (English as a Foreign Language) Programme has been highly successful. The programme is offered all year around to individual students and large groups from Europe and the rest of the world. They join in order to learn and improve their English, immerse themselves in an English Boarding school and go on exciting trips within the UK.
This year, we had a wide mix of nationalities join us, including Spanish, Italian, Russian, Ukrainian, Taiwanese, Chinese and Israeli. The children stayed from as little as 1 week up to 10 weeks and all had a fantastic time learning about the English culture, and each other’s cultures.
They embarked on many and various activities such as climbing, bowling, Go Ape treetop adventures, trampolining, hiking, Adventure Parks and more. And there were many visits to popular cities and locations such as London, Brighton, Oxford, Cambridge, Canterbury, Camber sands and more.
In the boarding house, the children were made to feel like part of the Greenfields family and took part in many activities, including sports, cooking lessons, jewellery making, crafting, movie nights, etc. Combined with informative English lessons which catered to all levels of English, the children left with many new friends, an improved knowledge of the language and with new-found confidence.
