English schools in the USA and Canada
In addition to homestay vacation packages, Story & Birch also offers intensive 2-week and 4-week English courses throughout the year. Courses are for a maximum of 5 people. This ensures that every student is treated as an individual and receives as much personal attention from us as possible. Students must be 18 years of age or older.
In each course, we will review the fundamental grammar required at that level, as well as developing your vocabulary. Reading, writing, listening and speaking in English will be heavily focused on through reading articles, listening to news reports, presentations, discussions and much, much more. For business students, we will also focus on Business English topics. You will also use English during meal times and activities. When you leave, we will give you a feedback report with details about your English level (CEF), strengths and development points.
We will take a day off for sightseeing and vacation activities each week.
