About PGL Lancashire
The Forest of Bowland lies nearby, which is a designated Area of Natural Beauty. Built around the original main house, Winmarleigh was formerly a spectacular traditional Victorian estate. Set in 50 acres of gardens, parkland and woodland, the building retains many original features and its large rooms and sturdy construction make it ideal for groups of children.
The centre is small enough to have a homely feel, but large enough to explore and experience a range of fantastic activities! Winmarleigh Hall offers some great activities, including the well loved – giant swing! This centre also has a quad biking track and a newly built private lake for raft building.
English Language Programme at Winmarleigh Hall
PGL English Language Programmes are a stimulating
combination of classroom learning, exciting adventure activities and visits to places of interest in the UK.
They are specially designed to be engaging, enjoyable and fun, giving every student the best opportunities to learn English in a friendly, English-speaking environment.
All programmes are based at our purpose-built residential activity centres which provide students with access to our outstanding facilities and adventure activities.
Our English Language courses focus on improving speaking and listening, combined with written work to keep a record of students’ achievement. Students receive 15 hours of teaching each week in enjoyable, interactive classes with no more than 12 students per class.
Courses are taught at four levels, with students assessed on arrival and streamed into classes according to ability. Each student receives a specially designed workbook containing modules and exercises based on their course. A certificate of achievement is presented to each student at the end of the course.
Visits to towns and cities in Britain give students many opportunities to improve their knowledge, fluency and confidence in English, both written and spoken, in real life situations. Our specially designed
excursion worksheets provide a fun and informative way of learning.
A full-day and a half-day each week are allocated for excursions to world-famous landmarks and historical sites, where students can visit historically and culturally interesting locations, see the sights and even do some shopping.
A member of the PGL centre team will accompany each group to provide support, information and the benefit of their local knowledge.
Every PGL centre has an exciting range of on-site adventure activities such as climbing and abseiling, zip wire, quad biking, raft building and canoeing - all supervised by experienced, well-trained English-speaking PGL activity instructors. This means your students have the ideal opportunity to develop fluency and conversational English while enjoying fun-packed outdoor activity sessions.
Every evening our teams will provide an entertainment programme filled with games, quizzes and other activities to keep the group occupied. There is also the potential for students to mix with English-speaking children and further develop their English skills.
