Surf and Study
This course is designed for those who love the combination of English classes in the morning and activity in the afternoon. If you select the 20 hours option, two afternoons a week will also be in the classroom.
The course is open to anyone: beginner, intermediate or even advanced surfers of all ages and English levels. We run the course all year round, but the waves are at their best in May, June and September.
Mornings are spent at Babel Fish Language School, located at Trenance heritage cottages in the heart of Newquay. Set within beautiful landscaped gardens, our school boasts comfortable, light and airy classrooms and wifi. At Babel Fish, we encourage students to talk as much as possible. Our lessons are designed to get students to debate, create, discuss and role-play. We work on everyday, practical English as well as pronunciation and phonics. As teachers with many years experience both in EFL teaching and in mainstream education, we are passionate about bringing language alive and encouraging creativity and debate. Students will also learn creative writing techniques and how to critically analyse different types of literature.
Afternoons are spent at a beautiful local beach with experienced surf teachers and others who love the ocean.
What makes this course different is that we are immersed in language all day, even when we’re in the sea.
Lunch, surfing tuition and equipment – as well as English tuition and accommodation (with breakfast and dinner) are included in this package.
