A 3-day walk and talk English language course on the stunning Jurassic Coast in Dorset, England.
Want to learn English in England?
Come join me in my home country to practice and learn English conversation on a holiday course along the beautiful coast of Dorset.
Stretching along Dorset and Devon, the Jurassic Coast is so-named because its landscape and geology record 185 million years of the Earth's history.
The coastline is packed with fantastic locations, activities and many photographic opportunities at anytime of the year.
English language students:
I have designed this course especially for people who are learning English as a foreign language. Rather than sitting in a classroom, you can have a nice break and immerse yourself in real life, everyday conversational English. But instead of just an ordinary in holiday England, you will have an English teacher with you to guide, help and encourage you along the way. I will be able to help with new language, local expressions and ensure that you get fully immersed in the language and come away feeling more confident.
Everyone today has a digital camera, and we all love to take photos on our holidays. Well no matter whether you have an expensive SLR, or a basic compact camera, as an experienced photographer and teacher, I can show you how to get the best from your camera and come away with much better photos.
- Speak English everyday with me, and with local people.
- Visit beautiful coastal towns, beaches, coves and hike along stunning cliffs.
- Learn some local expressions, hear different accents and experience the local food, drink and culture.
- Learn how to take better photographs (I also teach photography)
There will be time for sightseeing, shopping and many other activities, making this a fun-filled active way to learn English.
You will also learn a lot about the locations we'll visit, including some history and local stories.
Accommodation will be included for 3 nights, but should you need or want to arrive earlier or stay longer, then I can arrange extra nights for you.

- Accommodation: 3 nights bed & breakfast (extra nights can be arranged if required)

Portland Bill Lighthouse and Pulpit Rock
The English coastline is one of the most beautiful in the world, but its rocky headlands and treacherous seas have been the bane of ship captains for centuries. The section between Portland Bill and nearby Chesil beach is no exception and in 1716 the Portland Bill lighthouse was built to safely guide shipping into Weymouth Harbour. More information here
After settling into your hotel, we will head down to the southern tip of the isle of Portland to visit this famous lighthouse and the nearby pulpit rock. The sea around this headland is extremely rough and provides some great photo opportunities. Here I will help you to get the best possible photos and teach you some photography vocabulary.
Then it's off to a cosy local pub for a chat over a nice pint of English beer!
Weymouth, a classic English seaside town, and two of the Jurassic Coast's most beautiful locations
After breakfast we'll head into Bridport for a visit to a typical Dorset tearoom for cream tea and scones, a tradition throughout the southwest of England.
Then we'll go to Weymouth, a superb example of an English seaside town. We'll stroll along the beach and harbour before heading off to a nearby hill for a great view across the Jurassic Coast.
For the afternoon, we'll head off to Lulworth Cove, while visiting some villages and attractions along the way. We'll have lunch at the Castle Inn in West Lulworth village, where you can sample typical English pub food and real ales.
Kimmeridge Bay, Corfe Castle, Swanage and Old Harry Cliffs.
Today we'll head to Kimmeridge Bay. This small cove and beach provides some great scenery with the clavel tower folly perched upon a hill at the edge of the bay, and receding tides expose some great rocky ledges. Then we'll head off along this coastline, stopping at a few different locations before heading to Corfe Castle and Swanage.
We'll have lunch somewhere around here and then take a walk out to the beautiful chalk stacks and pinnacles of Old Harry Cliffs for the evening.
