What you'll learn

The English and Cultural Studies course focuses on the useful language and skills you will need for your Global Summer School course and for making the most of your stay whilst you are in the UK.

You will improve your English fluency by engaging in hands-on tasks which expose you to Nottingham’s local culture and the local accent!

Over the course you will:

  • further develop your formal and informal English language speaking skills
  • expand your knowledge of English vocabulary and grammar
  • transfer your English language knowledge to real-world situations
  • enhance your ability to communicate in English within teams
  • work together on a group project
  • learn more about the UK, it’s people and culture.

After studying this course, you should be able to write and speak in English more effectively and more confidently.  You will be better prepared to communicate with tutors and fellow students on your Global Summer School course.  This course will also help you develop the skills necessary to be a more independent English language learner and visitor to the UK.

*The one-week course is only available to students taking a Block 2 course or our ‘Design and Innovation in Business' three-week course.
