On our varied programme schedule, we have visited Chichester, staged a very competitive ‘pub quiz’, gone boating on a lake, gone on a ‘Ghost and Murder Mystery Tour’ of Arundel, visited the wetlands centre, watched the semi-finals and final of Euro 2016, and played plenty of indoor and outdoor games. Last weeks creative group project – the writing and acting of a theatre sketch – will have a post of its own!
The Wetlands Centre
Students at Echo don’t only learn in class. The exclusive use of English at all times – activities, excursions, meals, around the house – forces them to experiment, to leave their comfort zone, and to use English communicatively and creatively in relevant contexts. Thus they learn at a deeper, more experiential level involving a greater variety of cognitive and emotional stimuli and processes, often without even being aware of it, while at the same time having a great deal of fun!
