What is Age 40+?
Age 40+ is an English programme for mature learners, who want a holiday with some language practice - and to spend time meeting other people.
Our course is based on Cultural Experience, which is an an alternative way to improve your communication skills in English on a course that is unique in each of the Language in Group locations.
This programme was originally developed by our London school in 2005 and was awarded the British Council prize for innovation in English teaching the following year.
The course is designed to make learning more memorable and to help you make the most of your stay in London or Totnes. Each lesson is taught outside the school in a local place of interest and cultural heritage.
In London you learn English through its varied world of museums and art galleries.
In Totnes you learn English on a journey through castles, countryside and the unexpected.
Each day is special English lesson with a different cultural topic. You will be encouraged to learn new vocabulary and take part in discussions. The lessons are very relaxed, so don't worry if you haven't studied for a long time!
On your Age 40+ holiday, you will also have three extra afternoon or evening activities. These change during the year but include a welcome drink in the pub, a guided tour, tickets to a play or concert, cream tea... we try to arrange what is best depending on the time of year.
And if you are feeling adventurous and want the holiday of a lifetime, then we recommend you do one week in London and then one week in Totnes... and we will arrange everything for you.
