Course Content

The syllabus incorporates language study, language for life, excursion link lessons and academic skills sessions.

The language study lessons focus on the communicative style of language learning and provide grammar and vocabulary tailored to a student’s ability. Whereas language for life lessons integrate a wider range of topics including learner training, literacy, culture and life skills.

The course aims to:

  • Build language skills and confidence gradually through our multi-level syllabus.
  • Help students achieve their individual goals in language learning.
  • Gain a better understanding of English books, films, songs, the internet and other media.

Academic Skills Sessions

The academic skills sessions give students an introduction to exam techniques and are intended to help students improve the skills of academic reading, writing, listening and speaking.

These sessions take place over two hours each week and culminate with students taking the Bucksmore Assessment.

The variety of lessons and teaching material provide students with a stimulating and comprehensive learning experience throughout their stay with Bucksmore.

Bucksmore Assessment

The Bucksmore academic team have researched and developed a brand new examination for 2016, the ‘Bucksmore Assessment’.

This has been introduced to replace the previously offered Trinity exam. Assessing a learner’s skills in reading, writing, speaking and listening, it provides a more rounded evaluation of a student’s English ability.

The Bucksmore Assessment provides more relevant and appropriate language so learners are motivated to perform better than other, more adult-focused, exams.

Taken at the end of the course, the Bucksmore Assessment is designed to complement the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference) and to provide learners with a realistic determination of their English ability. It can be applied against other international English exams such as Cambridge ESOL & IELTS. Students will leave the course with a certificate of recommended English level measured against the CEFR scale.

All students receive a personalised Bucksmore Education report card and certificate during the graduation ceremony at the end of their stay.
