OPTIONS plans immersion courses in the UK regularly in the year. Our schedule is flexible : just tell us when you want to go and we do the rest !
A real anglo-saxon experience
We have chosen to do our immersion training in Norfolk in England, 50 miles North-East of Cambridge, as it is a region that we know and love.
With our extensive network in the area, we are able to have very special contacts with the local residents to really make the most of your stay in England.
The training takes place in a large country house, giving you a taste of the region, which is, in fact, the home of a local journalist. Nothing makes her happier than to talk about her work, current affairs in the UK in general and more specifically in this royal region. The Queen has a large house, Sandringham, just a few miles down the road and is frequently in residence with other royals.
There are a lot of real benefits in doing this training in the King’s Lynn area ; training which combines progress with pleasure….
The main objective is to enable the participants to improve their English; especially to build their confidence and to facilitate oral exchanges
The immersion concept can be summarized as follows: training days are split into ON and IN workshops.
- The “ON” workshops focus on the language side of English (grammar, vocabulary, speaking, comprehension and pronunciation).
- The “IN” workshops target communication in English. This includes working on meeting techniques, mini-presentations and even report-writing.
Group size is small (a maximum of 4 per trainer) to optimise personal attention with the participants and to facilitate exchanges with guest speakers.
And to make the most of your time in England, we organise special visits, for example to Cambridge university or the North Norfolk Coast, to get a balance between business and pleasure…
You’ll be speaking and dreaming in English 24 hours a day !
Sleeping accommodation is in typical homes close to the training centre.
Each participant has their own private bedroom and the morning kicks-off with a famous English breakfast !
The host families are specially chosen for their friendliness and they love talking about their region and their way of life. You can talk about anything and everything – as long as it’s in English.
