Beautiful location at the seaside, vast gardens, sporting facilities and other attractions certainly will not allow the students who choose Hastings as the place to study English to be bored.



HASTINGS
This town, known above all from history lessons, lies on the south coast of Great Britain. It has a direct train connection with a nearby Brighton and London. Today it is a popular seaside resort with a moderate climate. The town centre houses many bars, pubs, cinemas and discos. It is a town large enough to be interesting and small enough to allow for peace and quiet.

 


About the courses

Students are placed in groups according to their level of proficiency. They may choose to learn in the mornings or in the afternoons. The lessons are conducted in an interesting way and allow for developing all four language skills: speaking, writing, reading and listening. The courses teach the students new vocabulary and help them to improve the accent. Individual problems can be dealt with by the student himself in the language centre after classes or with the help of a teacher. The lecturers are open to the group's suggestions and prepare the classes in such a way that they fulfil the students' expectations. Often the course serves as a preparation for further studying at Hastings College or Hastings University.

ACCOMMODATION OPTIONS
The students usually live with host families where board - breakfast and dinner - is provided. All families live in the vicinity of the school or the city centre and are regularly visited by the school's representative, which guarantees high standards of the accommodation. Hastings College also offers help with finding a flat to rent and by obtaining a visa, medical services or any other issues connected with the stay at Hastings College.

LEISURE PROGRAMME
The participants of English courses in Hastings may take part in events whose aim is to integrate the learners.
