 **New Course for Summer 2021**

Do you want to know more about British culture? Do you want to visit famous places and areas of great beauty in the English countryside? Then this is the course for you!

The Language Centre offers the British Cultural Studies Course during the Summer. It is a short course with a duration of 3-weeks, and it provides students with the opportunity to learn more about the culture of Britain and visit sites of cultural and historical significance in North West England.

Course Components

During the course, students will study ‘themes’ which will allow them to gain an understanding of culture in the northwest of England. This is not a language course, but students’ English language will improve during the course as they are introduced to new language and practise their listening, speaking and reading. There is no assessment on this course.

The course will cover a series of themes relating to British Culture and the northwest of England including (but not limited to):

  • Exploring the northern coast
  • Music in the north
  • Great northern writers
  • Industry in the north
  • The northern countryside
  • Sport in the north

British Culture visits or trips (21 hours per week or 3-day trips per week)

Students will have the opportunity to visit places of interest linked to the themes above. Students will have lessons in the classroom and then have the opportunity to go and visit the places they have learned about. The trips may vary depending on the availability of tickets at the time of booking the course, but will include major cities in the North and places of cultural significance. Visits may include Liverpool, Manchester, Southport, Yorkshire and the Lake District.
