English Lessons 8-12

At Loxdale they run a popular, fun and academically rigorous pre-teen course for 8 to 12-year olds. This is an age group with enormous potential as learners, and our lessons harness that through a wide range of fun and educational classroom activities of shorter duration, supported by a clear daily routine of learning. Suitable for all younger students of English, whether as an introduction to the language or as extra study for those talented students who already have a good level. In class our teachers make use of specialised EFL learning material and also use realia, so students make the most of their stay in the UK. We even teach our students about the places they will visit at weekends and various aspects of British culture and traditions, so they learn more than just English. As with Loxdale's courses for older students, Loxdale attracts some highly-skilled pre-teen language students, and they have the experience to make sure all students fulfil their learning goals while having a fun and memorable experience.

English Lessons 13-17

Loxdale's in-demand teen programme course has something for learners of all levels and styles. With English classes of multi-lingual international students, our lessons are a blend of academic focus and fun learning - targeting 'the 4 Cs' - Communication, Confidence, Culture and Critical Thinking. All levels are catered for, from Beginners to C2 CEFR Proficiency level and many students choose to return to us each year as they strengthen their English study skills and progress through their teens. We also have a variety of cultural lessons as well as links to social programme activities and trips, making sure students get the most out of their time here. Through offering such a varied course together with weekly progress checks, students can be assured of the big steps they are taking on this highly enjoyable course.


Residential: All students are aged 8 to 12 live in residential centre where they receive 24-hour care and supervision. The only exception is when they ask to live with their parents either in homestay or guesthouse/hotel accommodation. Loxdale residential centre, Truleigh Hill, is located 15 minutes from Loxdale. The location is perfect - close to the School and set in the beautiful South Downs National Park. There is lots of garden space for students to relax in and play sports, and as the accommodation is well away from busy roads the students will be very safe.

Homestay: Loxedale provides homestay accommodation and they choose their hosts because they make you feel part of their family. Host families in Brighton provide a friendly, comfortable home for you while you are studying at Loxdale English Centre and provide both a delicious breakfast and dinner after your day learning English. You have lunch at School and can choose whether to have a packed or a cooked lunch.
