British Etiquette programme

British Etiquette

Year-round (except July)

Group bookings only
12-17 year olds

Our British Etiquette programme is a fantastic way to really get to know our culture and improve your English at the same time. You will learn about British customs, history and the norms of British life. You will experience our social customs and traditions, learn about our social classes and the Monarch and find out all about modern Britain as well. You never know, this might all come in useful next time you are invited for tea with the Queen!

Along with a selection of general English topics your lessons will have a specific focus on British etiquette. Topics include:

  • British Traditions
  • Social Class & Status
  • The Monarchy
  • Legends, Folklore & Superstition
  • Idioms
  • Manners
  • Afternoon Tea
  • Everyday Life

We want you to enjoy our lessons and have picked topics which will interest you.

Our methodology is about giving you the chance to communicate in English so you won’t be faced with the same boring old grammar exercises that you get at home, you will be involved in projects and tasks which will involve you and make you use the language.

Our teachers are specially trained to activate the knowledge you already have as well as fine tune some of the mistakes you may make. You will have the chance to improve your vocabulary and grammar during the lessons as well.

Your activity programme

You will have fun on our activities…and you will learn as well!

The evening activities are great fun and steeped in British traditions;

Ceilidh – a ceilidh is an evening of Scottish dancing to traditional music. It is very energetic and involves following instructions, dancing together and losing inhibitions. It is a fun group activity that is extremely popular with students which introduces them to different ways of socialising and having fun.

Games night – the group will play an array of party games designed to get them moving and working together. Some will involve performing actions to music whilst others will have them working as a team in order to perform a simple challenge. The emphasis will be on fun and teamwork.
