Overseas Explorer Tour

This interactive tour features language based drop-in activities including speaking and listening practise; as well as object handling.
As part of the visit you can also include a short optional writing workshop where students focus on the use of the literary techniques of metaphor and simile, to describe their own characters - or base them on existing Dickensian characters. Students will also have the opportunity to write their characterisations in quill and ink.
We cater to students just starting out with their study of the English Language, through to those who have been studying for several years.
All sessions are delivered in English only.
