About London Xpress

LONDON XPRESS is an exploration of British Culture; a programme that takes students on a tour through London’s past, present and future.

The programme is a 10 day total immersion programme into English language, culture and tradition.

On the London Xpress students will complete cultural visits divided into three thematic modules: History & Wealth, Tradition & Heritage and London Today. During each of these stages students will be given a series of tasks, rallies & worksheets to compile for their personal portfolio.

The programme culminates in a group presentation of their experience as they reflect on their stay in London.

Our goals: 

– To expose students to English in real life scenarios.

– To develop students’ communication skills through dynamic and interactive activities.

– To encourage students to work both autonomously and within a team. The London Xpress tasks are developed to encourage collaborative learning whilst the personal journal encourages students to reflect upon their own personal interests, tastes and experiences.
