Experience Summer School from your own home
This exciting 2-week virtual English Language programme is open to 10 to 15 year olds of all English ability levels to develop their proficiency in the English Language.
It covers all areas of English Language development: reading, writing, speaking, listening, grammar and vocabulary. Lessons will be delivered expertly by our in-house teachers.
The basic and intermediate courses will focus on the following skills: vocabulary expansion over a range of topics, reading comprehension (inference skills), and grammar will be basic work on tenses, prepositions, sentence structures, and there will also be a communicative language element which will involve speaking, listening, and conversational skills. Vocab will be targeted according to their entrance level.
Other fun and practical elements will also be incorporated into the programme of English lessons such as creative art. Students will both consolidate and extend their learning through artistic projects including digital art and other creative media. Whilst reflecting on their English lessons and practicing their new skills, students will explore different media and techniques, including photo-editing, graphic art and portraiture.
Learning is delivered through virtual lessons, guided project work, hard-copy and interactive materials and resources. There will be a structured timetable of intense English Language lessons and projects with 3.5 hours of guided learning, 5 days a week.
The class allocation process ensures that all students are placed into a bespoke learning group, tailored specifically to their age range and English ability. Consequently, the allocation process guarantees that each class has a mix of students with similar academic profiles. All students have the opportunity to ask questions and discuss topics with their teachers and peers in a fully immersive digital learning environment.
All lessons will be delivered expertly by our in-house teachers. Our teachers are highly qualified and experienced classroom teachers, the majority of whom are UK trained and have experience in English Curriculum Schools in both the United Kingdom and internationally.

I would like to extend a very warm welcome to all pupils and parents, and thank you for considering our excellent English Language Programme. Epsom College has an extremely proud history, dating its origins to 1855 in the UK, and the quality of our education has always been at the very forefront of our key provisions. Epsom College in Malaysia has established an outstanding summer school programme in recent years, blending all the essential attributes and quality outcomes of international education. We have moved, like others, into the virtual (online) dimension in recent months and this has proved very successful in propelling pupils’ learning forward.
We are delighted, therefore, to offer this opportunity of intensive English language provision in our virtual summer programme, based upon all the hallmarks of a first-class UK school. We also hope that this entices you to further explore all that Epsom in Malaysia has to provide, and we very much look forward to welcoming you to our actual 50-acre campus, at some point in the near future.
Thank you once again for your interest in this exceptional venture.
Dr. Murray Tod, Headmaster
