Eurocentres: School, Beach, Style
Language School Brighton
The language school in Brighton lies in the heart of the town, opposite the world-famous Royal Pavilion – built between 1815 and 1822 by George IV, Prince of Wales, as his comfortable summer residence. The ancestor of Prince William selected Brighton due to its beautiful beaches and its privileged location on the coast of the English Channel in the south of England. These beaches are just a few minutes’ walk from the school. Once a mundane seaside resort, Brighton is today a trendy place that many young people choose for their language holiday and which the rich and famous have designated their favourite destination, thanks to the great clubs, restaurants and designer hotels. Brighton is cool, cosmopolitan, lively and – yes – known for its good food!
At the language school in Brighton, you will learn correct British English in bright, modern, spacious classrooms. There is a learning centre with a library and media library, a computer room with Wifi and a comfortable student lounge. The school is not only ideally located, it is also very well connected: most bus routes stop directly in front of the school and the railway station is just a 10-minute walk away. A programme of events, which changes each week, invites you to discover the highlights of the area together with your fellow students during your stay: the Royal Pavilion, Brighton Pier, Marina Village and the beach, the Lanes, the famous Royal and Komedia theatres, and the Sussex Downs.
A typical day at Eurocentres Brighton
Gülay is pleasantly surprised by Brighton. She had expected a classic seaside resort for the elderly rather than the lively coastal city with lots of young people that she has actually found. And there is also a beautiful pebble beach just a few minutes away from the school. Her wishes were even taken into consideration in the choice of the host family where she stays. She wanted a childless couple as she often has to look after her siblings back at home. Andy and Sarah are a couple in their 40s and showed Gülay the most important places in Brighton at the beginning of her stay. The couple live about two kilometres from the school – Gülay normally walks or takes the bus.
Gülay is also very pleased with the teachers at the school. They have a very personal approach and are noticeably interested that all students achieve their goals – in Gülay’s case, this is passing the First Certificate examination. She has already made great progress and is starting to have the confidence to hold conversations in English. In class this morning, they discussed the advantages and disadvantages of social media. Gülay was not only able to follow the discussion, she also actively participated in it.
