English Language and British Culture

This summer school will allow the opportunity to improve proficiency in English while learning more about British culture. Coventry University is famous for its innovative and interactive teaching and students will engage in stimulating sessions and active learning with excellent tutors who are passionate about their teaching, and aim to provide a unique immersion into British language and culture. This course is designed for non-native speakers of English, and supports participants in improving their knowledge and proficiency of English language, while at the same time, learning more about British culture.

The programme will be delivered in the central campus through a range of stimulating interactive sessions, and both individual and group activities. The course is supported by a day trip to London that is included in the programme and visits to local attractions (such as the famous Coventry Transport Museum), which will give participants an opportunity to visit areas of interest and consolidate their knowledge.
