What does the English course include?
Our English course is designed to help our students to communicate more effectively and confidently in everyday situations. Each course is delivered by qualified English teachers in small class size settings.
Our 45+ years of experience has taught us that a maximum 15 students per class is the best route to success in learning English. We also actively encourage multilingual classes where we aim to mix 4 or more nationalities per class so that our students benefit from a richer cultural mix. This creates a dynamic learning environment for our students and broadens their learning opportunities.
"We spent two wonderful weeks in Hurst and everything went really well with the experienced academic staff in terms of language education. MC was well organised in creating extensive and fun activities every day and able to make my students' days more colourful with the energetic and friendly activity leaders."

"Our daughter had spent 14 days in your summer school. She was so happy there and she liked it very very much. She was even sad to come home, because she missed her new friends and the school…and everything. I want to thank you so much for what you do for all these young people. It’s such a good organisation, you have my great respect and my congratulations."

"My school has sent our students almost every year since 1989. I like MC because they take good care of us. All the students who took part in MC say that they had a wonderful experience there. The staff always care about the students’ safety. I think it is a warm and comfortable atmosphere to experience summer courses."
