                                         English Courses

The Plymouth English Centre was started by Mr. Kimmo Kosunen in 1988. At the Plymouth English
Centre, we run full time and part time courses in General English, Exam Preparation and Business
English either in-group study (no more than eight students per group [12 in youth activity
programmes]) or on one to one basis for applicants of 12 years of age and above (unless otherwise
agreed), all year round. The School is only closed for two weeks over Christmas. Applicants can
enroll anytime and start any Monday or as agreed between the school and the applicant. Our
flexible timetable allows you to study at the times that suit you: morning, afternoon, evening, or
even a combination of them all. The Centre has two adjoining English Language Training Centres,
one for adults and the other for youth students. For summer youth programmes, we utilise Unite
University Student Accommodation in Plymouth.

Our methods and approach to teaching English help applicants develop their language skills so that
they can communicate effectively in situations where English is used. The lessons are based
around topics, which incorporate all the fundamental language skills: speaking, listening, reading
and writing.

Our teachers use the most up-to-date course books and audio-visual materials and every effort is
made to create both a varied and exciting learning experience. As student-centered teaching is
recognised as the most effective way to learn languages, all the teachers aim to focus on each
individual student’s language needs. We use interesting classroom activities carried out through
pair and group work to encourage interaction and to motivate applicants. As well as all this, our
friendly staff makes every effort to maintain a good relationship with the students outside their
curricular activities, thus creating the optimum environment for learning.

There is continuous assessment for all applicants, and long stay applicants get a regular progress
report. A Certificate of Studies is given to each participant at the end of their course, as well as a
report from the teachers outlining important aspects of the course and containing recommendations
for the student’s further studies.

The applicants can join the social and leisure activities programme organised by the school (see
Social Programme), which includes excursions, sports activities, theatre visits, cinemas, live music,
discos etc.

All our applicants get guidance and support from us from the moment they make their first enquiry
(about the courses) until the completion of their studies.

                Two Week Youth Activity Summer Residential Programme

Introduction
The Youth Activity Programme run by the Tellus
Plymouth English Centre in Plymouth, England, gives
youngsters between 12 and 18 the opportunity to study
English and enjoy a range of activities and excursions.

The standard course lasts two weeks and combines high
impact General English classes with a comprehensive

provides a comprehensive coverage of the grammatical structures relevant to the students level,
including the English tense system, and is aimed at developing the participants’ language skills
                                      systematically, in which all the previous lessons lay the
                                      foundation for the new ones. The topics for each unit to be
                                      studied have been carefully chosen in order to create
                                      interesting, useful and authentic contexts for a fuller
                                      understanding of the language. The lessons have been
                                      structured to allow chances for the students to practice and
                                      use the language they are studying in a natural and realistic
                                      way, with ample opportunity, for example, to talk about
                                      themselves, their families, friends, countries, lives, work,
                                      interests etc.

              Language and Teaching Skills for those whose first language
                        is not English with School Placement

About the course

We offer English language courses for foreign teachers throughout the year including the summer
holidays. Whether you represent an education department, an individual schools or college, and are
thinking of organizing an intensive language course for the members of your staff or are a teacher
looking for a course for yourself, we would be pleased to help.

Course Outline
The course can be run on either as a five or ten-day course, both of which are intensive. It is
aimed at teachers from the in the primary, secondary or adult education who need to teach their
subjects through the medium of English. The programme focuses on enhancing and upgrading the
participants’ language and teaching skills while also presenting an opportunity to observe the British
way of teaching their subjects in state schools by means of shadowing English subject teachers in
their daily work. In addition, participants will also be able to obtain an insider’s view of life in Britain
through activities conducted in English outside the classroom and the opportunity to live in an
English host family.

The course focuses on English language, education and language teaching methodology, not on
specific subjects, the teaching of which can be observed live in selected schools. The language
teaching element concentrates on everyday, general English, also including specific classroom
language usage and management.

The fee contains language tuition (6 Elements in one-week programme or 12 in two-week one),
training and workshops (7 in one-week programme or 12 in two-week one), job shadowing at
schools and full-board host family accommodation. The minimum language level required for this
course is Intermediate.

Funding
Teachers from the European Union, and from certain other European countries, applying for this
course at Tellus Plymouth English Centre are eligible for EU funding.

Essential Preparation for the Course
Course participants are kindly asked to write a (minimum) 250-word essay, in which they describe
the following:

A. Their most memorable teaching experiences, both positive and negative.
B. Their most memorable learning experiences, both positive and negative.

These contributions, which will be kept anonymous, will then lay the foundation for the first
methodology workshop.

In addition, prior to the course, we shall send each confirmed participant an electronic questionnaire
to ascertain their needs so that we can adjust the course according to these requirements.

The Methodology
As far as possible, the participants are to be divided into multi-national groups so as to enhance
their chances of practicing their communication skills through English, the common language for all.
An important part of the course is based on workshops focusing on various aspects of teaching and
learning styles, introducing various techniques in use, the problems involved and their solutions
through discussion, role play, team work and assignments. The methodology, as well as the
techniques used, aim to search and improve the ways the students at home can be supported to
benefit from their lessons as much as possible. With the data acquired from the questionnaire, the
participants’ individual needs are incorporated into each programme with continuous evaluation and
adjustment throughout the course.

                            Work Experience (Internship) Programme

Unpaid career development in the UK

                  In most vocational areas of study, the Tellus Work Experience/Internship
                  Programme offers a unique way for participants to develop their personal and
                  career goals through work experience, and interns are able to bridge the gap
                  between the theoretical knowledge that they have gained at university/college and
                  the reality of working in a business environment. The programme aims to provide
                  the participants with means of improving their existing English language skills in a
                  professional environment, enhance their employment opportunities within an
                  increasingly competitive employment market while also increasing their awareness
                  of international business and practical work experience.

We aim to match work placements with each trainee’s career objectives. The length of placement
ranges from three weeks to six months. We advise three to six weeks for those participants of 19
years of age and under and eight to thirteen weeks for older participants.

Companies are selected on the basis of:

     •    their ability to provide our trainees with a suitable position in their
          fields of study and valuable practical work experience in order to
          support their future career objectives
     •    and the clarity of the companies’ job descriptions.

     In More Detail - Work Experience Procedures and Programme Management

                               The focus of WEUK is on being a part of a team. It is important for
                               Promoters, Agents, Participants, the European Commission (for
                               those on LdV ERASMUS programmes) and the work placement
                               companies that programmes are run efficiently.

                                 Before the participants arrive in the UK, WEUK review their CVs and
                                 Registration Forms. It is from this information that the WEUK team
                                 of Work Placement Officers find the best possible work placement.
                                 We need Participant details a minimum of six weeks before they
arrive in the UK, and will inform them about their work place, accommodation and language training
(where required) before their arrival.

As an integral part of our service, WEUK staff meet Participants on arrival in Plymouth and take
them to their accommodation. All participants attend a welcome meeting where they obtain a
welcome pack with information related to their stay in Plymouth, timetable, itinerary, maps, travel
details etc. The welcome meeting lasts most of the day and includes, such issues as what to
expect from the work place and the host family and how to deal with problems and includes an
orientation of the City centre and historical places of interest.

Every programme is rigorously monitored, initially at the end of the first week, mid-way through their
programme and again one week before the Participant goes home. Copies of these evaluations
can be sent to promoters and agents if required. Dependent on the length of stay Participants
receive at least one visit from a Work Placement Officer to their
place of employment during their stay. Every Tuesday evening
participants are required to attend what we call our student
evening sometime between 17:00 and 19:00 hrs. At this meeting
each participant is given sufficient time with a member of staff who
checks their timesheets and the other reports. Participants are
asked what they are doing in their work placement, how they find
their accommodation and about their general welfare. We find this
meeting beneficial, as it enables us to identify potential problems
before they arise.

Participants are supported in the completion of any reports they are required to complete including
their EUROPASS.

For Leonardo da Vinci or Erasmus promoters WEUK prepare an end of programme report, which
will help them to complete their final report for their National Agency.

Partners and agents are given a named Project Coordinator employed within WEUK, who will
provide whatever assistance or information is needed during the Participant's stay.

Our evaluations to date have shown a high level of satisfaction from our Participants and Partners
alike.

                                          Accommodation

All our accommodation is carefully chosen and monitored to ensure that high standards are
maintained and that you will be comfortable and happy. We keep in close touch with all our
accommodation providers and students, and deal with any problems, which might arise (although,
as our families are so nice, there are very few).

We recommend home stay accommodation for those who wish to benefit from home comforts and
a family atmosphere. Staying with a host family is probably also the best way to practice your
English and generally learn about the British way of life. If two applicants are placed with the same
host family, we try to ensure they are not of the same nationality, and, therefore, English is spoken
at all times! All host families are a maximum of 30 minutes’ from the school or work place.

The accommodation is selected before you arrive. If you book a programme at short notice, the
accommodation officers will naturally do their best to find the accommodation type you require, but
we would advise you to book accommodation at least four weeks before the date of your arrival to
guarantee the type you require.

Our Accommodation Manager will be pleased to arrange accommodation for you in Plymouth. You
can choose from:

HomeStay (host family)

There are two types of HomeStay:

    •   Full Board: This is where you have a bed, breakfast, packed lunch (sandwich, chocolate
        bar and fruit), and evening meal. You live in a house as though you are part of family.
        You have your own key and come and go as you please paying respect to the family. We
        recommend HomeStay as it gives a student insight into English family life and all your
        needs are met. It's a safe and secure environment.
    •   Half Board: This is the same as above but without the packed lunch. You may choose this
        option if you want to buy your own lunch. Popular with our more senior students who want
        to try out a restaurant or cafe.

Self-Catering

There are three types of self-catering:

    •   Home Stay: This is where you live with a family or property owner. You will be responsible
        for buying all your own food and cooking. You have use of all the facilities within the
        house. e.g. kitchen, washing facilities etc, subject to the house rules.
    •   Student House: This is the same as Home Stay but you will be living with other students.
    •   University Student Residence: This is the same as the above but the accommodation is
        only available in the summer when the University students have gone home.

Note: Self catering is very basic. You may need to bring your own bedding, towels, cooking items
etc. Please consult us.

Bed & Breakfast Guesthouse

This is generally a large house or small hotel. You get a bedroom to yourself and you have a
choice of traditional English or Continental breakfast in the hotel.

Hotel

There are different hotel options available dependent on your budget.
