It’s Spring here in Girton and we are enjoying a beautiful sunny day!
We’ve had a really busy year so far with lots of groups of teenagers coming to study here on our young learner group courses.
Here are a few pictures of our groups…
This is our beautiful group from Argentina, Brazil and Chile who stayed with us for 4 weeks in January.
They were happy, funny, hard-working students and we LOVED having them here!
We took the students to Princess Helena College, a typical English boarding school, where they joined the students in their lessons and got a chance to chat to the students at lunchtime.
It was a lovely day.
Last week we had a group of students from Denmark.
They spoke English really well and were such enthusiastic students. They spoke English all the time – even out of class!! We studied lots of topics including British life and culture, inventions, graffiti and music. I enjoyed teaching them so much.
We also had a large group of Italian students from Naples. They were studying IGCSE Geography and had a very intensive week studying earthquakes and volcanoes. They worked so hard! Out of class the group were lively, fun and LOUD! But we had so much fun with them.
Here they are with their teachers.
more groups are here at the moment… I’ll update you soon……
We had a fantastic Thai Party on Wednesday evening!
Here are some students preparing the food 🙂
Students practising Thai boxing for the evening performance.
The evening started with some Thai dancing.
Then the boys performed the boxing.
And we heard some Thai music performed by some of our students.
The evening finished with some delicious food 🙂
Thank you to our Thai group for a great evening!
Our students have been working hard on their English, here they are in their class groups!
Tonight we are having a Thai party at CAE! Here is one of the invitations designed by one of our students 🙂
Our 23 Thai students live with local homestay hosts here in Girton. They spend a lot of time in the home and enjoy the chance to get to know English families and put their English into practice.

Yesterday afternoon we had a fantastic time raising money for SOS Children’s Villages! Our students and staff helped on stalls that had games and some which made and sold wonderful items 🙂
