So far in 2017….

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.


March 2017

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……

Thai Party!

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!


Having fun in our homestays

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.

“It was Easter Sunday. We and Eliza decorated the Easter hats. It was fun.”

Goodbye to our wonderful South American Group

Last Friday we had to say goodbye to our South American group 😦

It has been a fantastic 4 weeks, with lots of English learnt and lots of fun! Here are some photos of you working hard in your class groups.

On Friday it was the end of course presentation, where you received your certificates

You got to show the great work you have produced during your time at CAE

A big THANK YOU to your fantastic Group Leaders!

We will miss you!


CAE’s visit to an English boarding school!

Yesterday our South American group visited an English boarding school, the Princess Helena College in Hertfordshire.


Our day started with a tour of the school and we then joined in with some lessons! We joined lessons in…History…German…French…Geography…English…Biology…and many more!

One of the favourite lessons was photography. Students had to take photos in and around the school, that would create an alphabet collage, their name or a certain word.

Our students took the cameras and explored…

Here is the work that our students produced:

We had lunch together, which was followed by a group activity with the PHC students.

In the afternoon we joined more lessons, before getting the coach back to Cambridge.

We were made to feel very welcome and it was a fantastic and very interesting day 🙂

Thank you to everyone at PHC!
