MAUD BRUNET,  SALES MANAGER EUROPE, ALPADIA

Why would a student choose your school?

Brighton: One of the UK’s quirkiest cities, Brighton is home to an array of street art, independent shops, and of course, an iconic pier filled with old-school arcades and rides. Explore The Lanes – the maze of colourful alleyways that are packed with boutiques, vegetarian cafés and ice cream shops, and discover the surrounding Sussex countryside with trips to the South Downs and its magnificent white cliffs.
Our summer camp in Brighton is set on the coast with stunning views of the English Channel, the city of Brighton and the beautiful South Downs National Park.
We organise the program in a prestigious boarding school with traditional and classic architecture, modern interiors, large classrooms, high ceilings and comfortable social spaces.
The campus offers excellent sports facilities including an indoor swimming pool and sports centre, basketball courts and playing fields.
Students will participate in a varied social programme including trips to London, Brighton, Sealife Aquarium and more.

London City: One of the most exciting cities in the world, London leads the way in music, fashion, culture and even food. From Tower Bridge and the Tate Modern to Buckingham Palace and Arsenal or Chelsea’s football stadiums, our English summer camp for children and teenagers in the heart of London means the capital is your playground.
Alpadia London–City is located right in the heart of New Cross, a vibrant student area in south-east London.
Accommodation is offered in a modern and high-quality residence with single en-suite rooms.
Our summer English courses in London combine language classes, cultural experiences, sports and entertainment.
Students will discover the iconic sights of London such as Big Ben, Tower Bridge and Trafalgar Square during school activities and excursions.

London Surrey: Our English summer camp for kids and teenagers is set in the historic and vibrant town of Guildford in Surrey, just 40 minutes away from the hustle and bustle of central London. In the capital, students can marvel at the city’s many iconic buildings and palaces, immerse themselves in culture with visits to Westminster, Natural History and Science Museums and more.
Many famous movies were filmed near our summer camp in Surrey, including Harry Potter, Bridget Jones, Love Actually and Suffragette.
Located in a peaceful, safe and green area our camp is just a train ride away from all the excitement of London.
Excellent sports facilities including a sports hall, outdoor spaces and a football pitch.
Varied social programme including trips to Hampton Court Palace, Windsor Castle, and many iconic sights in London.

 

In your opinion, what are the main benefits for a student to study abroad?

While studying at Alpadia, students will use English all day-long, not only during their English classes but also during the activities and excursions and to communicate with their new friends coming from all over the world. Students will see that English is a language to make friends, to discover new cultures and to have fun.

 

How do you see the future of language tourism?

We strongly believe in the importance of living an experience abroad to improve the language skills but also to expand our students’ horizons.

 

What types of courses do you think will be most in demand in the future?

Language courses combining classes, immersion and activities will continue being very popular in the next years.
