Get the Bell experience online this summer.
Our online Summer Explorer programme gives students the opportunity to develop their English language skills, build confidence and meet people from all over the world – without the need to travel!
At Bell, we understand the importance of learning by doing, which is why we use project-based learning to not only give students a chance to activate their English, but also to engage in interesting and important topics that matter to young people today.
Choose from morning or afternoon sessions to suit your local time zone. Please note that all times given are based on UK time.
On this course, students will:
- Gain confidence and become more independent learners and users of the English language
- Develop their English language skills (reading writing, listening, and speaking)
- Improve their vocabulary, pronunciation, and understanding of grammar
- Gain essential 21st century life skills (communication, critical thinking, collaboration, creativity, and cultural awareness)
- Learn key study skills to take forward in their future studies
- Meet new friends from across the world
Just like our face-to-face courses, our online lessons are based around weekly project themes. Project-based learning is designed to encourage students to apply their language learning to real-life situations, such as negotiating and making decisions, and take ownership over the outcome of their weekly project, whether that’s a vlog, presentation or student-led quiz.
These valuable language and life skills can then be taken outside of the classroom and applied in their personal or academic life, and into their future career.
Sample weekly project themes
