English Language Course Activities

An Interactive Travel English language course offers many activities for the student, designed specifically to help them to develop their skills, personality, confidence and not least – their English language ability. Being based in South Devon, this provides ample opportunity for many activities that aren’t available in other parts of the UK as well as the student’s home country. With some of the best coastline in the country as well as easy access to Dartmoor and Exmoor there are many opportunities for exciting, challenging and diverse activities.

Our philosophy is that continual pure language lessons can get boring for the student, which will interfere with the learning process and their ability to retain the knowledge. As well as choosing activities which develop the student as a person by making demands upon their leadership/teamwork abilities, these activities distract the student’s mind from their language studies but at the same time actually compound their learning of the language.

Whenever a group of students are being provided with instructions about the safety procedures or the general instructions for that activity, these details are initially provided by a native English speaker – in English. There will always be leaders on hand who are bilingual and after the native English speaker has provided the instructions, the students are asked if they have understood everything and whether they require further translation of the instructions.

One of the main benefits of this system is that the student is more focused on the activity and the demands that it places upon them – therefore the language skills that they aquire are gained surreptitiously which can be a very effective way of learning.
