What can you expect from EFL-20?
Ages 18+ | Morning lessons only
This is a mornings-only course option, with 20 lessons (15 hours) per week, plus free social activity options after class.
Morning classes are available for all levels of English learning in a structured course focusing on the use of English in normal everyday situations. The English classes combine quality classroom teaching, with self-study resources and after-school practice situations.
You will be tested on your first day of school and placed in a mixed nationality class at the appropriate language level.
Teachers are available in tutorials after class hours, for discussion of progress, evaluation of English language learning strengths and weaknesses, and to give advice with self-study. Teachers are there to ensure that you are satisfied with all academic aspects of your course and are progressing well.
Morning lessons are attended by all Studio’s Intensive English Course students, but the morning-only EFL-20 option is available specifically to ages 18+ as under 18’s must also attend afternoon classes.
After-class activities are offered free of charge at least once a day (Monday to Friday) so you can practice your English in real-life situations. Have a look at our ‘Social life’ page for more information about Studio activities and student life.
Notes for students
- As under 18’s must be in class in the mornings and afternoons, they may not book the EFL-20 course. However, all students aged 16+ attend the same morning classes which are mixed according to English level not according to course type. Therefore it is normal for ages 16 or 17 to join classes with ages 18+ who are studying on EFL-20.
- School social activities are supervised by members of staff, but all students attending social events are expected to make their own way back to their accommodation.
What do our English lessons involve?
Studio Cambridge English courses are designed to be flexible to allow you a choice on when to start and finish your English studies. Teachers follow a set syllabus and within this they plan a week’s work (called a Weekly Work Scheme) based on your level and needs.
With this flexibility in mind, Studio Cambridge teachers choose materials from a range of the latest text books and websites. Materials are given to you in the form of photocopies and visual presentations, for you to order for reference in your files.
All classrooms have Wi-Fi, internet, data projectors and speakers. Teachers often design their own materials based on video clippings, websites, newspaper or magazine articles, TV programmes and ongoing events in Cambridge. Computers and Wi-Fi are available to all our students for language exercises, personal study and internet research in our dedicated Learning Centre.
Teachers will occasionally give lessons which do not use materials but stem from the language that you and your classmates produce.
We do not limit ourselves to one simple methodology as different students respond to different teaching techniques.
For an example of the kinds of lessons we run, please have a look at our timetables.
Studio Cambridge recognises that students coming to study with us may have different goals in mind for their progression. With this in mind, we use a variety of methods to assess your progress and aid your learning.
Taxi transfers from or to the airports are available to book in advance via our online enrollment or on request at a later date. The nearest airports to Cambridge are Stansted, Luton and Heathrow. Gatwick and Birmingham are also not too far away. Public transport (train or coach) link all these airports to Cambridge.
