Top Reasons to Learn the English Language at Summer School

At XUK Camps, we reckon there are lots of reasons why learning English in the UK, especially at summer school for kids, is a fantastic idea. Most obviously, English is one of the most widely spoken languages worldwide! Think back to how many times you’ve travelled to another country only to communicate in English, or interacted with non-native speakers in English. Of course, the English language will always present a challenge for some students - but finding the right location can make a big difference to the success of your studies. Here we suggest the top reasons to learn English, and why you should choose to study with XUK Camps in the UK.

Make friends all over the world

Above all, our summer school for kids provides a fun environment in which to learn. When you can speak one of the most commonly spoken languages, then you’re better prepared to communicate with way more people. Getting to grips with English will help you to forge friendships with English native speakers and others who speak it as a second language. Today, there are 1.5 billion people who speak English. Our English language summer school aims to open up a world of opportunity for your children. The point is to learn in a relaxed atmosphere, with real-world application – it shouldn’t be too formal or over-theoretical. Youngsters can also get familiar with regional dialects.

English communication helps with future careers – and personal statements

Although XUK Camps believes in having fun and our approach is not overly serious, students can still learn a great deal at our English language summer school - and your child can make rapid progress that they will be able to build upon in later life, including for use in future careers. Employers increasingly place value on applicants who are bilingual. Learning English in the UK is a gateway to build connections and develop friendships over time that will be helpful in unexpected ways further down the line. Good contacts help with career advancement; although this area is obviously some way off for our students, it’s another good reason to learn English in the UK.

Improved chances of acceptance to an English University

If you’ve studied the English language, then English universities can offer you a place if you otherwise qualify for the course you’re interested in. For some institutions your English will need to be impeccable, while others may have less stringent criteria. Selecting the UK to learn English could look impressive to universities, since they’re able to gauge the likely standard and reliability of your English skills. Nearly every English university requires you to know English – at least to a level where you’re able to complete a dissertation. It helps that our summer school offer trips out to university cities like Oxford and Bath, so students can become familiar with the atmosphere and local culture.

It shouldn’t be too much of a surprise that around 600,000 students annually visit the UK to learn English. At XUK our focus is on interactive lessons, above all. Students work on magazine articles, learn grammar and vocabulary through role playing exercises and other games, and enjoy a range of activities including basketball, hiking, yoga and tie dying. Learning outside of the classroom also means you can get up-to-date with the latest English slang words and idiomatic language. Youngsters are focused on learning one of the vital skills of a lifetime, but it never has to be dull.
