Residential Mini-Stays

Our most popular term-time programme for educational visits to England offering international schools quality English tuition, cultural exchange and real-life language immersion.

Xplore Residential Mini-Stays are all-inclusive, with accommodation, ESL and language enhancing activities, available on-site with all located close to top cultural excursions destinations and opportunities for social exchange with English students on the doorstep.

General English & Exam Preparation

We can offer both general ESL lessons through either Anglia Examinations or Trinity Examinations (location dependant) with the option of taking an examination at the end of the mini-stay. Our approach to English is incorporated in all aspects of the mini-stay programme, incorporating a range of fun, innovative and interactive projects into our lessons which allow students to develop their English sometimes without even noticing.

Activities

Xplore activities are designed to give students a break from the classroom but still enhance their English skills through communication and teamwork in a fun, lively and social environment.

We want to challenge students with our activities to support their developing self-confidence and leadership as well as listening and speaking language skills, we find that many students are much more confident in the classroom following taking part in the adventure. All our activities are undertaken on-site and are supervised by carefully selected, fully trained Xplore staff.

International Exchange

Working with a strong network of partner schools, we can offer our mini-stay groups the opportunity to integrate with high-quality English schools, allowing students to experience school in England, take part in subject lessons in English and meet English students, further improving their language proficiency in an academic environment.

Other options for integration and international exchange are to include English students with your group on activity sessions, excursions or even sports fixtures.
