Magnifico Summer Campus English Lessons

We want you to enjoy learning English. The teachers' role is very important, but your contribution is essential. We need you to participate as much as possible:

• Always speak in English
• Ask questions (teachers are always happy to answer)
• Share your knowledge with other students
• Share your experiences with other students
• Don't worry about making mistakes- communication is important
• Remember we are there to help

Lessons are generally in the morning, but sometimes they are also in the afternoon and you will usually have two teachers. The course follows the Trinity College London GESE (Graded Examinations in Spoken English) syllabus and if you wish, you can choose to sit an exam at the end of the course. This is an internationally recognised qualification. The exam is a one-to-one, face-to-face oral interview between you and an examiner:

• 12 grades from absolute beginner (Grade 1) to full mastery (Grade 12)
• Levels A1 to C2 of the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference)

The day after your arrival, there is a placement test (written and oral) which helps us to decide your level and to put you in the right group. Remember that the course is based on the listening and speaking skills and we are looking at your ability to communicate. There is a maximum of 16 students in each class.

At the end of the course you receive a Certificate of Attendance.

Magnifico Summer Campus Sport

Each campus has its own sports programme. The programmes include football, volleyball, basketball and tennis.

You can change activity every day or stay with the same activity for your whole stay.

Magnifico Summer Campus Performing Arts

At the University of Leicester and the University of Reading we have a programme of Drama, Dance and Singing lessons. In the end of course Talent Show, you will have the chance to show the other students what you have been doing.

You can change activity every day or stay with the same activity for your whole stay.

Magnifico Summer Campus Other Activities

Each campus has its own programme of other activities. The programmes include games, quizzes, competitions and discos.

Magnifico Summer Campus Excursions

Each campus has its own excursion programme. We take you to places of cultural interest and give you some time to do some shopping too!

For details of the excursion programme at each campus click on 'Our Centres' at the top of the page.

Magnifico Summer Campus Your room

Your room will usually be a single room with private bathroom facilities. Sometimes you will need to share a bathroom with other students. (For details of the types of rooms available at each campus click on 'Our Centres' at the top of page).

The rooms are cleaned regularly and we ask you to always keep your room tidy.

At the end of the day, you must be in your room by 23:00 and 'lights out' is at 23:30. You will need your sleep - the programme is very tiring!

Members of staff and local university staff will be on duty to make sure that no one leaves the accommodation buildings. All campuses have CCTV and 24 hour security staff.

Magnifico Summer Campus Food

You have breakfast, lunch and dinner on campus, except on excursion days when we give you a packed lunch (a sandwich, a drink, a piece of fruit and a snack).

The food will be different from what you eat in your own country, but the local staff work hard to give you varied and healthy meals. Please tell us if you have any special dietary needs.

One of the things that most students find strange is the time of dinner. In the UK, it is much earlier than in other parts of Europe. Dinner is often at 18:30.

Magnifico Summer Campus Campus Rules and Safety

When you arrive, we give you a Student Handbook. It is very important that you read it. It has lots of information that you will need during your stay. It also contains the rules that we all need to follow.

The rules are there for your safety and we want you to have a good time.

If you have a problem, any member of staff will be happy to help you.

 

Job Opportunities

We are looking for enthusiastic, energetic and outgoing staff keen to make a decisive contribution to all aspects of the course.
