Our activity programme at Twin is designed to keep students active and entertained outside of their English language lessons, and is offered at all Twin Summer Centres. We want to ensure that all students in our English summer schools have a great experience with us and laugh as much as possible, hence why our activity programme is packed with of fun daytime and evening activities and full-day excursions to famous locations in the UK.  We have adjusted our activity programme to suit each of our Twin Summer Centres, so that students will get the most out of the area they are visiting, as well as having lots of fun, experiencing typical British culture and making new friends from all over the world.

During the day, students will be kept entertained with local visits, sports activities and scavenger hunts, to name a few. Programmes are designed so that students explore the sites in their chosen study location, but also other popular locations in the UK. Students will go on one full day excursion per week to key cities such as London, Brighton and Cambridge, to allow them to explore the city, visit famous attractions, and gain some unforgettable memories of amazing places.

Students staying in residential accommodation can also enjoy evening activities seven days a week, with discos, talent contests, cinema nights and quizzes, which will keep them busy! Students staying with homestay hosts will enjoy evening activities twice a week and will spend the rest of the evenings with their host.

For Students at The Twin Summer Centres in Greenwich Ravensbourne the activity programme is called Discover London which encompasses English Language training with a full Activity Programme and guided tours that allow students to fully explore the capital.
