Description

The LAL English Language Center organizes a summer school at Berkhamsted School. This English school was founded in Berkhamsted back in 1541. In 2016 it was visited by Queen Elizabeth II to celebrate its 475th anniversary. The town is located north of London, and you can reach the capital in half an hour. It's home to Britain's oldest store, a summer programming school under the patronage of Elizabeth, and serves delicious food in a Main Street café. 

There are three programs to choose from: summer school, film school and programming school. Each includes a 15-hour week of English study and trips to the West End and Oxford. The school is equipped with classrooms, outdoor areas, lounges and a conference room. The lessons take place in the morning and afternoon. Children are taught in groups of up to 15 people depending on their language level. At the end of the course a graduation party is organized for the children. There is a gym, a swimming pool, tennis courts, and grounds for soccer and hockey. In the evening there are games, karaoke, auctions, movies, discos and talent shows.

Children are placed on campus within walking distance of the academic building. Coffee shops, a supermarket, pharmacies, and a movie theater are within 5-10 minutes. Rooms are cleaned daily by a cleaning service, and meals are served three times a day.
