Courses Make It Happen: a course for older students

Project-based learning for children aged 13–18

Make It Happen is a course tailor-made to appeal to older, more independent students. Working in your children's school, our professional teachers and enthusiastic activity leaders run a mixture of English lessons and sport, art and drama sessions. These all tie into student's work on a communal project with a single motivating theme, such as 'Dragon's Den' or 'Develop a Kickstarter campaign'. (On request, we can also run a special Make It Happen course focused on film-making.) This course is carefully designed to offer students lots of opportunities to improve their speaking skills. Being asked to come up with ideas for and then collaboratively develop a project gets students having to describe, persuade and argue for something – all in English.

At English Experience Camps we are proud of what we do, and work hard to maintain high standards. To ensure teaching quality, each of our camps is managed by a coordinator who has previous experience of teaching on a course. They monitor the work of other team members and keep everything running smoothly.
