Celebrating Halloween at Embassy English

Halloween is one of our favorite holidays at Embassy English because it offers our students the opportunity to show off their creativity, and it gives us the chance to plan the spookiest parties and scariest excursions. This year, Embassy English centres around the globe held costume contests, took city ghost tours, and helped students practice their English while carving pumpkins.

See all the highlights from #EmbassyHalloween 2015 on Facebook and Instagram.


In 2015, our Embassy students also truly put the “fun” into fundraising by holding Halloween bake sales to raise money for our Building Futures project, with the goal of building a primary school in Anuradhapura, Sri Lanka. We couldn’t be more proud of their baking skills and overwhelming generosity.

Discover a few of our favorite excursions from the Embassy English centre’s October Activity Calendars and be sure to visit our social media pages for monthly updates on all of our cultural and social excursions.


Teachers and students from Boston, Brisbane, Central London, and Brighton brought English to life dressed as ghouls, ghosts, and goblins with classes and Conversation Clubs focused on Halloween.

Zombies, villains, and superheros took over our campuses in Melbourne and Fort Lauderdale while costume contests for Scariest, Cutest, Funniest, Prettiest, and Best Couples were held across the US, Canada, and the UK.


Students in San Diego  had a packed October with excursions to Harvest Festival, pumpkin picking, boo at the zoo jack-o-lantern lighting at San Diego Safari Park, and the largest “spooktacular” event in the city, Monster Bash.

This weekend, our New York students will watch the world famous Village Halloween Parade and then take a trip to historically haunted Salem, Massachusetts.

Embassy English Toronto took a guided Ghost Walk across the city and will be visiting Niagara Falls and French Canada this Halloween weekend.


Students at the Central London campus have been scared silly this month with visits to Fright Night theme park and Highgate Cemetery, and also met up for scary movie night, midnight ghost walks, and haunted pub night.

In Los Angeles, students visited the Queen Mary’s Haunted Harbor and Knott’s Scary Farm, culminating with a trip with San Francisco students to Las Vegas this weekend, where everyday is Halloween!


Thank you to all of our students and staff for your devilish enthusiasm and freaky fun ideas! Be sure to tag all of your costumes and excursions with #EmbassyHalloween to be featured on our social media channels.

Happy Halloween!
