English Language + excursions
At Musicalous we believe learning should be fun for everyone, no matter how old. We therefore offer a range of tailor-made packages suited to your group’s needs.
We offer a comprehensive package to include educational visits and excursions.
For Schools any of our programs can be adapted to your liking or we can create a unique program to meet your specific requirements.
From experience we know that many students are shy speaking English with native speakers, especially in a large group. Therefore we place emphasis on communicating through a range of classroom activities including games and role play.
Excursions can be included alongside any of the other activities we offer and can be built around a course of tuition. The program of tuition can also include lessons dedicated to the cities, historic sites and other attractions being visited.
Enjoy the Dorset coast
As well as accompanying your group on sightseeing trips we like to make the most of our sandy beaches with a range of sports and activities at the coast.
We can organise a number of different watersports including sailing, windsurfing, kite surfing, kayaking or jet skiing.
A trip to the beach can include a game of volleyball or football, or simply some time for students to relax in the sea and the sun. Dorset’s Jurassic Coast (a World Heritage Site) is only a short drive from away from the town centres of Bournemouth & Poole, allowing us the opportunity to mix education with enjoyment in an outdoor environment.
The local beaches are safe, clean and are patrolled by life guards making it a perfect afternoon activity on long summer days.
We can even arrange for a traditional English picnic!
