English Language Summer School Classes
English at ISSOS is designed for students who have English as a second language. Our interactive classes cater to students of every ability and use topics of interest to help them to develop their knowledge, and confidence, in speaking English. ISSOS is also a fully immersive programme where native, and non-native speaking students are mixed at all times.
For older students (aged 15 - 18) with a stronger understanding of both spoken and written English (B2/C1) we recommend our Study Skills or Debate academics, which are both more suitable for students with a more advanced level of English. For more information on language levels and please click here to read our FAQ about suitability for each class.

What Students learn
On arrival, students are given a short test to assess their language level and allocate them to a class, where they will learn alongside students who are of the same level.
At ISSOS, English is taught by addressing subjects that are relevant and interesting to students and using class time not just to look at language but to learn about issues that are important, that will help students both academically and socially. As an example, topics that might be covered in our classes include current affairs, using social media responsibly, climate change, politics, bullying and social responsibility.
Our classes utilise a range of materials to help our students learn through areas that interest them. Everything from newspaper and magazine articles, to Ted Talks, videos, music and out of classroom tasks will be used to help students learn to develop their English Language skills while staying motivated and engaged.
Students will complete the programme with the knowledge and confidence they need to use their new language skills in both academic and social settings.
