GOOD NEWS!! 2021 has seen the gradual return of individual students to English Language Schools. Our School groups have also started to book for 2022. WE ARE OPEN!!!

In this programme, 4 students work with a teacher all day.  Because there are only 4 students in each group, they each get maximum benefit.  Teachers can give plenty of individual attention to each learner.

Club-4 is offered in our St Austell and Newquay centres in Cornwall.


  • English courses of 1-2 weeks in small groups of 4, with 15 hours of lessons per week
  • 4 students must apply together for the same dates
  • Topic-based lessons in the mornings followed by related project work in the afternoons
  • Topics include travel and tourism, education, history, art and environmental issues.
  • Topics are chosen according to the age and level of the learners
  • Afternoon projects include interviews, photography, information gathering, using resources at local libraries etc.
  • Assessment of language skills
  • Course reports and certificates
  • Cultural visits, full and half-day excursions
  • One afternoon of sports per week
  • Full-board accommodation with host families – one student from every language background

Price:   £500.00 per week per student

Although for many years I recommended a study vacation in the UK to students to improve their English, I could never recommend any organising association because I was never happy with their standards of teaching or the accommodation they offered. In particularly this last feature. I am of the opinion that a family who is interested in helping the students to better their English is almost as important as the good standard of teaching in classes. Then I met Mercator Schools who not only combine good teaching methods with excellent teachers but also caring families who are interested in the young people who come to stay with them and interested in helping them improve their English. All of the Italian students that I know who have taken a course of English with Mercator Schools have greatly improved their English which has made it much easier to pass university exams and get better jobs.
