Intensive Summer English Course

Need to get as much as you can from your English course?  Only have a short time to study?  Then make your time count with a Live Language Summer Intensive English course.  With 25 hours of study per week, it doesn’t matter if you need to improve your English for your job, your future or your study, we can help you, even in a short time. Last year, we had people of all ages join us from all backgrounds and countries.  Summer is a very exciting time at Live Language School and Glasgow – no matter what your interests are, you’ll find plenty to do in our friendly city.  Check out what’s happening throughout the summer here.
Live Language’s summer courses have a number of components.  You can choose what you study in the morning:
  • maybe you want Cambridge First Certificate (FCE) or Advanced (CAE) exam practice
  • or you might prefer General English
  • you can also study IELTS preparation
You also have choices in your afternoon skills class:
  • You can study English for work where you’ll learn skills to help you in your job or help find a new one
  • Or you may want more Listening and Speaking skills – this is our most popular summer skills class.  Most people want extra conversation practice while they are here.
  • You might want Exam English Practice so may prefer to focus on Cambridge exams or the IELTS.
When you arrive at the school, you will meet the Director of Studies.  She will be able to give you advice and help you choose the combination of English classes that is right for you in your intensive English course.
You can read the full course outline here.
Live Language’s Summer Intensive English course allows you to make the choice that is the best for you.  And you can change throughout the course if you want to!  We also have a range of support services to make sure that you have as many opportunities as possible to immerse yourself in the language and the culture.  See our help page for more details.
Use your time at Live Language in Glasgow to immerse yourself in the language.  Here are just a few ideas:
  • Join one of our monthly lectures as part of our Globaliveation programme
  • Borrow a reader or textbook from our library
  • Join one of the many Social Programme events – we try to make sure that all tastes are catered for.  We have a lot of free events, but obviously there will be costs for some trips
  • Chill out in the café and student lounge – chat to the staff or hang out with classmates playing video games on the large projector.

*Please note, the school requires sufficient student numbers to start a class, so some classes may be subject to cancellation or may not run all year round. The minimum number of group class size is 4 students. If a class does not have 4 students, then students will be given options to enable them to continue studying.  This may be converting the tuition fees to semi-private lessons or adding their name to a waiting list until the minimum number is reached.  Usually however, two similar levels are combined into one class to avoid disruption or inconvenience for the students.

Please read the Live Language Terms and Conditions before booking your course.

We also know that studying a language can be difficult and challenging and so we have a range of Support Services to help you progress as quickly as possible and make the most of your time with us. Try our Language Exchange Programme or get additional help from our Academic Support Tutor. We even arrange voluntary work with charities – all to help you improve your English.
