Travellers from many countries have to self-isolate when coming to England. Europa School offers free online lessons for everyone who has to self-isolate before starting a course at our school!

You start our General English Course in the mornings via video call giving you the chance to already meet your future classmates and your teacher. Once per week your teacher will do a private online tutorial with you.

If you need an accommodation in Bournemouth you can book a homestay with us for the total duration of your stay – even during self-isolation.

In your online lessons during self-isolation you will join our General English Course running in school via Zoom. This gives you the possibility to interact with your fellow students and your teacher without having to leave the house. You will receive a Zoom link and the course materials just before starting your lessons. Homework will be sent either already with the material or during your lessons.

After the lessons our Operations Manager is available as Emergency Contact or for any assistance you might need if your teacher or your homestay cannot help.

09:30 - 11:00 Lessons 1 & 2 In the morning lessons, you are provided with language input in the form of texts, audio and visual material. You work with the material to develop your communicative skills to become more fluent and accurate in the English language. To develop your accuracy, teachers focus on grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation. You become more aware of the structure of the language in communicative context. To develop your fluency, you are given various activities and tasks to convey messages in English either in the written or oral form.

Additional Services and Social Programme

In addition to the courses we offer various additional services and activities that are free of charge to participate in.

Flash Objectives and your personal learning plan

To make your learning as personalised as we can every Monday morning your teacher will ask you to come up with your weekly flash objective.  This is an aspect of your learning that you want to focus on for that week.  It could be the pronunciation of a particular sound or the mastering of a specific piece of grammar.  These are reviewed weekly and make up part of your personal learning plan.

Conversation Club

For all students we organise a Conversation Club once per week. Participating is free of charge. The Conversation Club is all about socialising with your fellow students while improving your English.
We will provide you and the other students with a topic (suggestions are always welcome) that we will discuss all together. Also you will get two exercises and the most important vocabulary.
The Conversation Club takes place on Tuesdays from 15:30 to 17:30. Students in quarantine will be provided a Zoom link shortly before the start so that they can join our students in school.

Language Clinic

Unique to Europa we run a weekly language clinic for free! Each Friday afternoon one of our teachers will be on-hand to answer your questions and provide you with extra materials for you to practise.

Monthly Tutorial

To make sure you are getting the most out of your time with us if you are staying 4 weeks or longer we have monthly one-to-one tutorials where you can spend time with your teacher to evaluate your progress, reflect on your learning and express any concerns you may have with.

Additional Services and Social Programme


We know that self-isolation away from home is different. To fit your needs best we have two accommodation options available: Homestay and Residence both in single-rooms and with full board.

In Residence accommodation meals will be served to your room as well. All rooms have their own bathroom. You have the possibility to rent a mini fridge in the residence at additional costs and according to availability.
