Sprucing up for Spring!

Some of our lovely Cambridge students recently enjoyed a beauty workshop at a local department store.

Beauty workshop. Bell Cambridge social programme.

This is not the first time that our lucky Bell Cambridge students have been given the opportunity to experience usually expensive makeovers for FREE. Thanks to the staff at the Bobbi Brown counter at the John Lewis department store in Cambridge, students could work out their Spring season looks with professional input in store.

Students were ecstatic to be included in such an event as they sat in a semi-circle around our engaging beauty practitioner. She took them through the make-up steps for a fresh, Spring look in a clear, concise and approachable way which included all levels of student. Some new vocabulary was raised and explained before students had the chance to speak English some more.

Many students volunteered to try beautiful products, others asked insightful questions, and some even bought some make up to take home. They had a great time, getting more than they may have bargained for in their full Bell experience.

Learning outcomes

By the end of their beauty workshop our students had:

  • followed instructions in English
  • gained an understanding of what Bobbi Brown make up means in Britain (supporting the royal wedding!)
  • met new Bell students and staff
  • communicated with other Bell students and staff in English
  • understood and expressed opinions about a range of beauty products and looks in English using the correct vocabulary.

Language in Action programme: learn to communicate like a local with free workshops, cultural and social activities to improve your English in real-life situations. Included with all Bell English courses for students aged 16 and over.
