English with Arts and Culture
Experience Cornwall + Learn English
This course celebrates our passion for the county of Cornwall and its rich cultural and artistic heritage – as well as its natural beauty.
It is perfect for more mature students who wish to explore Cornwall – its beautiful coastline and vibrant artistic past and present – combining cultural visits with relevant English classes.
Mornings are spent at Babel Fish Language School, located at Trenance heritage cottages in the heart of Newquay. We employ the same innovative teaching practices as with our General English lessons.
Each afternoon we head out to explore the county.
On a typical itinerary:
- The art galleries of St Ives
- The cliff-top Minack Theatre
- The Lost Gardens of Heligan
- The Barbara Hepworth Museum
- Beautiful Lanhydrock House
- St Micheal’s Mount
- Camel Valley Vineyards
- The Eden Project
- Walking tours of the coastline to key Rosamaunde Pilcher and Poldark locations
The price includes travel to and all entrance fees at the attractions and locations we visit as well as English tuition.
Pilcher and Poldark
Cornwall has captured the imagination of writers, artists and film makers for years: Rosemaunde Pilcher, Ross Poldark and Doc Martin are synonymous with Cornwall.
Many films and TV series are filmed on location in Cornwall: re-visit the locations in person on our walking tours of the coast.
