7 Fantastic Reasons to Book a Summer School in the UK

Stuck for ideas about how you’re going spend next summer? A summer school in the UK, combined with English language learning, is not only great fun, but a fantastic opportunity to make new friends, develop your confidence and take away memories to last a lifetime!  Here’s our top 7 reasons to book a summer school in the UK.

#1 Develop your English language skills

With Embassy Summer you are guaranteed a mixed nationality class whilst studying under a fully qualified English teacher. All of our classes are sorted by ability so you can get the most out of your teaching time interacting and developing with your classmates from around the world. Our new excursion tasks link the things you see and learn on your trips to fantastic locations to the classroom to maximise your summer experience! At Embassy we always work on your conversational skills and ensure you have something to talk to all of your new friends about!

#2 Taste British Food

One of the best things about coming to study with Embassy in the UK is the chance to sample all of the delicious food. Did you know that the national dish of the UK is now Curry? At your Summer Study Centre you will get the chance to have more traditional British foods, how does Fish n’ Chip Friday sound? Or will you look forward to the traditional Sunday Roast Dinner complete with Yorkshire Puddings and a generous lashing of gravy more? Maybe the weather will get hot enough to enjoy some delicious Cornish Ice Cream or ripe British Strawberries will cool whipped cream. London is one of the most multicultural cities in the world and you will get the chance to try cuisine from every corner of it!

#3 Try British Sports

You may not have had the chance to try some British sports before coming on your study holiday, our onsite activities at Embassy Summer are designed to get you involved in some of the sports British schoolchildren play. Try your hand at Rounders- it is like Baseball but far more fun! Learn what a Wicket, Over, Maiden, Googley, Stumps and Silly Mid-Off are when you get into a game of Cricket- the true sport of English summertime.

A sport day sees students race balancing an egg on a spoon and jumping towards glory in Sack Race! If you are really fast, really strong and quick witted you might find you are a future Rugby star. When better time to come to England if you are a Tennis fan? Feel the buzz of the Wimbledon Championships as you study under qualified coaches at our Academy Centres or Summer Plus courses!
