Alongside the popular International Summer School running at Cheltenham Campus, Gloucestershire College is offering free English as a Foreign Language (EFL) classes throughout July to all people who speak English as a second language.

Taking place between 1.30pm and 3pm from Tuesday to Thursday, until Thursday 30 July, there are two EFL classes available: one pre-intermediate for those who understand a small amount of English and one upper intermediate for those who speak and understand the language fairly well.

Anyone over the age of 16 is welcome to attend and the classes will focus on reading, listening, writing and speaking, alongside grammar and vocabulary – taught through a range of activities with an emphasis on communication and group discussions.

Gloucestershire College has over 40 years’ experience teaching international students and prides itself on the safe, friendly and supportive educational environment it provides, as well as its committed teachers, outstanding facilities the fantastic opportunities it can offer students.

As well as welcoming full-time students throughout the year, the International School delivers a hugely successful Summer School programme for both juniors and adults, which comprises a balance of English Language classes, sports, creative activities and cultural excursions.
