Nab Cottage
English Language School in England, United Kingdom


ebaaa247-7.jpg (4734 bytes)Hi. If you're looking for a course which is refreshingly different, which is nothing like you experienced at school, which moves excitingly beyond traditional models of learning and which has you communicating easily and confidently within days - then you may be interested in Nab Cottage.

ebaaa247-3.jpg (7555 bytes)Nab Cottage began as a family, a language school, and an international community in 1983. At the school, students and teachers live together and study together, so there is continuous interaction in English. It is in the centre of the Lake District National Park, an area of outstanding beauty and tranquillity, which is currently being considered for World Heritage status. The school overlooks a small lake and is surrounded by mountains. There are many wonderful walks from the cottage including waterfalls, caves, valleys, mountains and rivers. ebaaa247-6.jpg (6118 bytes)The region is very popular with British tourists so there are many facilities in the villages, including cinemas, shops, bars, clubs, boating, tennis, fitness centres and leisure spas -Windermere, the largest lake in England, is just 3km away-. Nab Cottage is 2 hours by taxi from Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds/Bradford, Blackpool and Newcastle airports. There are also direct train connections from all these airports to Windermere, the local station.

The four colourful and comfortable classrooms are all in the beautifully converted barn right next to Nab Cottage. Facilities include computer, WIFI, listening and reading library. Students can use the facilities here at any time including evenings and weekends. The barn was built around 1800 and the thick stone walls and original features have been kept. Nab Cottage takes a maximum of 20 students in the school at any time. Classes are very small. Students are all adults and come from all over the world. Teachers apply a holistic model of learning, encouraging students to behave, think, dream and relax in English. This creates a strong foundation, because everybody learns from each other and grows in confidence and self-esteem. Teachers ask everyone to speak only in English all the time they are on the course.

ebaaa247-4.jpg (9699 bytes)There are different courses available at Nab Cottage. The General English For Adults course usually runs from June to September. People can enrol on any Sunday and stay for between 1 and 13 weeks. Each week is made up of 35 contact hours and includes: Large Group/Whole Community Sessions to establish confidence, Small Group Classes, which are organized in groups with 4 to 9 students of the same level and concentrate most of your work at the school; One To One Sessions (weekly tutorials with a teacher); Guided Study Sessions and Small Group Activity Sessions.  Other courses offered by Nab Cottage include Closed Group Courses, designed for groups or companies, English & Yoga, English & Walking, One-to-one courses (which can be booked apart from the general courses) and Experiential English for Teachers. This is a brand new course and will run for just one week, from April 11 - 17 2010.

ebaaa247-5.jpg (7782 bytes)Regarding accommodation, students live at Nab Cottage, sharing the space and the facilities. The bedrooms are all cosy with beautiful views, and most have their own shower and toilet. Downstairs there is a sitting room with log fire, a TV room, a piano room, dining rooms, and a large farmhouse kitchen. The gardens around the cottage and barn are used for lessons when the weather is fine. There is also a patio with barbecue where everyone often eats lunch, an orchard, a vegetable/flower garden and an outdoor sauna. Breakfast, lunch, dinner and teas/coffees are included in the price. You can buy alcoholic and soft drinks at cost price.
