Academic Subjects Immersion Programme

13-17 years (Folkestone,UK)

What is this programme?

The Folkestone Programme is a programme that goes beyond knowledge and proficiency in the language. This programme explores a wide range of academic subjects such as history, geography, natural sciences and literature. Students develop personal skills and intercultural awareness as well as the development of learning autonomy. 

21st century subjects: Students develop their knowledge on key 21st century subjects such as: economics, arts, science, geography, history, politics.

English in context: This course allows students to analyse the use of the English language, with audio, video or written support, and to reuse knowledge in a concrete way in context.

Project: The opportunity to be creative and work in a group is presented during this course. It allows to develop team spirit, listening, with the final objective of creating a presentation, a video report, or a blog on a defined theme.

Portfolio: each student has a personal portfolio. This "portfolio" helps the teacher and student to measure progress and acts as a support during individual coaching sessions. Students also use their personal "portfolio" for self-assessment, as well as to set personal goals.

Culture & Cultural Excursion: Students have a mid-week excursion to a place related to the program. Before the excursion, they do research work on the site, perform a task during the excursion and, later in the week, share their knowledge.
