We all know that one of the best ways to learn English is to spend time in an English-speaking country, which is why by attending this course, participants will simulate going on a trip abroad to Brighton in England in order to visit one of its many International English Schools.  The course is designed to have students “learn by doing” by putting students through typical situations one may face when abroad in order to reinforce grammatical foundations as well as refresh and expand on basic vocabulary.
