Our class levels

Students are placed by age and ability to a maximum of 15 in each class.

Levels are determined by an online test which is sent to students prior to arrival.

In low season, when we do not have a full class, you may be in a mixed ability group – however, please be assured that our teachers are qualified and aim to ensure all students can learn and progress.

Ages of students

Generally, we accept students aged 11-17 (unless in a closed group). We aim to place students in classes based around both their age and test score, to make sure lesson content is suitable for both their age and level.

Please note: mixed ability classes may be running but teachers always aim to ensure everyone receives content/tasks to their level.

Syllabus Overview

Hello! Exmouth's programmes for juniors are designed to challenge and motivate students to develop their English language skills.

The Hello! Exmouth's programmes are topic based and adopt an integrated skills approach. Students will generally follow a different topic each lesson at an appropriate level and for the right age range/genders of the class. This ensures that whether a student is at Hello! Exmouth for 1, 2 or 3 or weeks, they will follow new material.

Classroom activities focus on developing practical speaking, listening, reading and writing skills as well as boosting each learner’s range of vocabulary. Appropriate English language teaching materials will be selected for each skill using materials from the teachers’ resources centre. However, the programme is very student-centred and a great deal of the language is student-generated.

Lesson examples

Lessons aim to include a range of activities to create a dynamic classroom with lots of chance to practice English!

For example, with the topic of food, tasks will include:

  • ways of describing food (flavours, textures & food types)
  • analysing English menus (reading skills)
  • discussions around fast foods (speaking skills)
  • restaurant role play – ordering food/making complaints (speaking practice)
