The English 50+: Gardens and Tours / British Culture and Customs run on specific dates and it's not available year-round. The course includes single room homestay accommodation (half board on weekdays, full board on weekends). The programme is uniquely designed for mature students. The English lessons take place in the morning where students will talk about the afternoon trip; they will go through the vocabulary, sentences, and expressions that they are likely to encounter.
