May 25, 2011


Dear Students

This is to inform you that Monday 30th May 2011 is a Bank Holiday.
Students who want to receive their lessons back for this day must book a formal holiday at Reception. If you do not book a holiday at Reception then you will not be able to get your lessons/hours back later.

We would also like to inform all students that the next college trip to York will be on Thursday 23 June 2011. The trip is a standard part of the college curriculum and is a part of your learning.

Student who do not want to go on the trip have the following options:

1) Come to the college and do practice tests prepared for them by their teacher. If you come to college you may be put into a multi-level group supervised by a member of staff. Your teacher will not be available that day because they will be on the trip with the other students in your group. You will not be taught a separate lesson because the trip is part of your lesson.

2) Students can take a holiday as they would on any other school day if they didn't want to attend. If you do not want to come to college and do practice tests and you do not want to go on the trip, then you have to take a holiday and get the time back at the end of your course. If you do not take a holiday, do not come to college for practice tests and do not go on the trip, you will be marked absent.

3) Students who do four hours a day but do not want to go on the trip can come to the college and:
a) Do four hours of practice material left by their teacher,
b) Do three hours of practice material and do two hours in their later groups the next day.
c) Take a holiday and get the whole day back at the end of their course.

The trips are an excellent opportunity for all students to practice their conversation, social and real-English skills. You will be taken to interesting places which stimulate your imagination, teach you about English culture and history and encourage you to discuss what you see, hear and do with your teacher and other students. Trips like this are designed to help students improve their speaking skills, integrate into UK society, communicate naturally and feel more confident when speaking to English speakers and other people outside the school.

The programme for the trip will be explained to each group by their teacher.

Kind regards,
Leeds Language College Ltd.

Trip to Brihmam Rocks and Knaresborough

Trip to Brihmam Rocks and Knaresborough

On the 30th of September, our students went on a trip to Brimham Rocks and Knaresborough. The fifteen students left the College at 8.30 for 1.5 hour journey to Brimham Rocks.
Once they got there, they were able to admire the weird and wonderful shapes of the rocks. Some looked like animals, e.g. elephants, bears, others like mushrooms, all of which owe their shapes to erosion.

After a 2-hour walk the students headed to Knaresborough which is famous for being Mother Shipton's birthplace. She is England's most famous prophetess and most of her prophecies proved to be accurate. The students visited Mother Shipton's Cave and observed the strange phenomenon at the petrifying well which changes objects into stone in only 3 months!
They also made a wish at the wishing well of good fortune while holding a coin in their right hand and throwing it into the well.

Afterwards they were taken on a tour of the museum and gift shop. They finished the day walking up to Knaresborough castle and relaxing before the walk back to the coach!

At the end of the trip, they were really tired but enjoyed this fabulous sunny day!

Students' feedback

I had so much fun on the trip. It was amazing, the weather was lovely and I especially liked the shapes of the rocks at Brihmam Rocks, especially the dancing bear! The group was friendly and we took beautiful pictures.

The trip was very good, the place very nice and the weather was good. I really enjoyed this trip and I hope we will go on another trip soon.
