3 Benefits of Attending a Summer School

A summer school is an educational course, usually taken over the summer, between the schools terms. Courses last between one to five weeks, during which students receive intensive tuition in English or their chosen academic subject. Courses are also combined with many fun and creative extracurricular activities.

There are many benefits that attending a summer school can bring you or your child. Here we take a closer look at three benefits we believe are the most valuable…

  1. Develop English skills – Many overseas students choose to take a summer school course in the UK to develop their verbal and written English skills, either because they wish to apply to an English-speaking university, or simply because they want to become fluent in the English language. Here at Our World English we believe that communicating in English becomes a passport to new cultures, friendships and understanding.
  2. Develop academic skills – The summer school setting, with its smaller classes and intensive study, helps students to develop valuable academic skills that are important for university. These skills can include engaging in academic debates or more practical skills such as essay or CV writing.
  3. Experience other cultures – Summer schools offer the opportunity to immerse yourself in a new culture and see the sights of the local area. For overseas students, a summer school is a great way to combine studying with sightseeing and gain valuable life experience.
