Winchester is a beautiful and small city in the South of England. The small city has barely 40,000 inhabitants. Located between hills and meadows, it is a place with a lot of charm and is considered one of the most beautiful, old and historic cities in England.
From Winchester, it is very easy to visit London, Bournemouth, Stonehenge, Oxford and Bath. As well as its beautiful architecture, Winchester has many cultural places of interest such as the Cathedral, Jane Austen's house or the round table of knights of King Arthur.
Winchester has been perfectly conserved and through its streets and corners, the history of England can be narrated as it was the capital before London. The city was the old capital of Wessex, and when the other six kingdoms were conquered, it intitally formed England in 827, it became the capital of the whole country until London took over a few centuries later.
It's not hard to guess how the city was a thousand years ago, as it really gives the feeling that it has not changed at all. The essence of the city maintains intact, as Winchester will make them think of the fantastic realm of King Arthur's Camelot that, by a statue by the town hall, protects the city.
Here you can find the Round Table where Arthur's knights gathered according to legend and also one of the biggest and most beautiful Cathedrals in the country.
The course is based on improving the essentials for the students when speaking. The students can choose areas of study to focus on by discussing this with the teacher and the other students.
Ideal for those that need to improve their fluency when speaking in English, whilst also enjoying their free time to enjoy the city and the surrounding areas.
The school organises a range of optional social activities for the students. Getting involved in these activities is the best option for the students to get to know other students from around the world and to practice English in a relaxed and fun environment.
