For Your Information

  • 1 teacher comes free for every complete group of 8 students (can be less if the group is small)
  • In normal circumstances, 10% deposit confirms the booking after holding an initial booking provisionally for one month whilst final estimated numbers are confirmed.   However with the pandemic these are not normal times and so an alternative reservation system has been developed which is described under the Covid-19 button on the Courses and Training page
  • 1 half price place is available, for children of accompanying teachers for every 15 students brought – but does not count towards the number of teaching groups or free teacher places.
  • Safety and security of students are paramount. Evenings are with the families unless written responsibility is transferred to the visiting teacher.
  • We are open all year! The climate is moderate, and winters are mild – the Atlantic Ocean is just 10 km away!
  • We can book hostels to extend the stay in the UK, but must be paid for at the time of booking (exact price + £20 fee/group)
  • The price is inclusive – no hidden extras, other than any special visits or requests or bookings before or after leaving Devon.
  • Adults are welcome but only as full participants wanting to study – and there is a small daily supplement to pay.
  • Full 8½ hour programme each day including fieldwork on visits, plus tasks with the family in the evening.
  • SOL is a small, friendly organisation and we treat everyone personally before, during and after the stay 
  • Students are placed in friendly and supportive families, preferably with friends as they will speak more English this way.
  • Sunday is family day.
  • Stonehenge and Tintagel can only now be booked by the visiting school itself  – the school must be a bone fide State or private school, not a language school – and this can only apply to whole groups using their own coach or booked as an air group.   It is not possible for any Open Course booking.  We provide instructions and help with the booking.
  • With no deposits being received or payments expected before the end of the year the chance to pay for 2021 courses at 202 prices will not be possible.
