I had an amazing experience taking the ELC programme at Newbold. The classes were interesting and fun - I learned so much. The teachers were amazing, they gave each student individual attention and the help we all needed. I got the amazing opportunity to make friends from all over the world and learn different cultures too!"

To best support your learning experience, the content of the modules you study will be adapted to your competence level of English.

English Language (7 hrs/wk)

These classes focus on improving your understanding and command of English vocabulary, structure and grammar.  They also address the skills of reading, writing, speaking and listening.

Speaking and Listening (3 hrs/wk)

These classes develop your oral communication skills through listening assignments, conversation tasks and presentations.

Reading and Writing (3 hrs/wk)

These classes focus on your comprehension and composition skills. They provide opportunities to address different texts and practise various forms of writing.

Creative Communication (1 hr/wk)

You will be challenged to practise your English and develop your general communication skills through different creative group projects, such as visual arts, video, drama, and cooking.  You will work together with students of different levels of English proficiency and learn through teamwork, intercultural communication, critical and creative thinking.

British Culture (1 hr/wk)

Peek into the past and present realities of life in the UK, as you put into practice what you’ve learned in language classes.


As your teachers are committed to provide you with the best learning experience, they will also arrange for some one-to-one meetings with you to discuss your progress and provide help where needed.

Independent Study Time

If you wish to improve your language skills significantly, just working in a class is not enough. You should plan to set aside some time for independent work outside of the classroom. You will need to complete your homework assignments, revisit your lectures, and take time to practise. This will help you succeed in learning English.

Typical Weekly Schedule

Unlock your potential, expand your horizons.

Not only will you gain proficiency in a new language, but  you will also make connections and friendships with people from all over the world.

Your campus experience
  • An intimate class setting, granting you  access to teaching staff who are devoted to enriching your learning, your life and your spiritual development

  • Daily campus fellowship through student programmes curated to evoke inspirational gathering and the meeting of similar minds.
  • Immersive yet subconscious forms of learning and worship that are interlaced into every day across academia and student life – it is those late-night dorm conversations, the sharing of perspectives across the halls that will shape you for life.
