The syllabus

The LAL Summer School syllabus has been designed to encourage students to communicate in English and to build their confidence. At each level you will work on developing your reading, writing, speaking (including pronunciation) and listening skills, though the main focus will be on communication. Your teacher will also help you develop your study skills, through learner training activities, to become a more independent learner. You will be taught in classes with a maximum of 15 students, ensuring that you receive personal attention from the teacher while being able to interact and practise with your fellow students in class. 

LAL Course book

LAL has written its own Young Learner course books. Designed to appeal specifically to younger learners, the books feature modern, stimulating materials using a variety of methods to ensure fast progression.

In the first part of your lessons, you will follow the LAL course books to study vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation, and you will also practise your listening, speaking, reading and writing skills.  

Projects 

In the second part of each lesson you will do project work. This is based on the activities and excursions that happen during the week. The projects will help you to improve your communication skills by working with the other students, and will also help you to become better at learning when you are away from your teacher. 

Blog

We would like you to show your friends what you have achieved at LAL, so you will be able to post parts of your work and photos on our blog at roundup.lalschools.com.

Fun-packed learning

LAL will offer you a variety of sporting and non-sporting activities at our summer schools, regardless of its location.  The activities will vary from school to school but some examples include treasure hunts, talent show, Karaoke, games and auction and quiz nights.  For the more sporty activities, mini Olympics could be on the calendar with dodgeball, rugby, quick cricket, football and many more. All schools hold a welcome disco or party on the student’s first day while on the last day, all summer schools hold a graduation ceremony with a farewell party.

Each week there  will be an excursions to a variety of locations which will be either recreational, cultural, educational…or all three! You will also be able to explore the area where the schools are located and its surrounding areas and explore what it has to offer.
