Discover LAL’s Real Life English
Most people who are learning English know that one of the biggest problems they have to deal with is learning how to use the skills acquired in the classroom outside of it. Unfortunately, even straight A’s students struggle to talk to native speakers.
This is exactly why LAL has created its signature experience, Real Life English. Thanks to a combination of a regular English course and activities during which you’re forced to practise your English, you’ll have no choice but to learn to speak the language well.
LAL’s Real Life English
You may be thinking that our programme is no different than that of other schools promising progress through language immersion. After all, English courses run by qualified teachers should be similar.
What makes LAL’s Real Life English unforgettable and special? Here are some examples of activities prepared for you after your daily course:
- Hiking the Lion’s Head in LAL Cape Town
- International Potluck Lunch in LAL Fort Lauderdale
- Photo Scavenger Hunt in LAL Torbay
- Cricket and picnic in LAL London
Do you know what’s the best? All of the above-mentioned activities are free for our students. These activities are a clever way to make you practise English, while you’re having the time of your life. A simple walk in a beautiful scenery won’t help you improve your language skills, but the same thing done as a group activity with other people learning English turns it into an amazing speaking pratice challenge.
The list above is, of course, just a sample of activities available to you. There are many others, free of charge and at an additional cost, outside the school as well as on its premises. Let’s not forget to mention our welcome event to help you make friends as soon as you get to your destination!
If you have any questions about the destinations, activities or you want to learn more about the unforgettable Real Life English programme you can chat to our Student Advisors on our website. They’re there to answer all your questions and help you choose the best option for you.
We know it already sounds amazing but there’s more 🙂 Once a month you can also participate in a special lesson outside the classroom – English on the Go. Castles, aquariums and markets await you and your teacher!
Real Life English: Unforgettable Destinations
The Real Life English experience for adults is available in many locations to make sure that there’s something suitable for everyone. You can learn English and grow as a person in the following LAL schools:
- Fort Lauderdale (USA)
- Cape Town (South Africa)
- Torbay (England)

How to know which one you should choose? There are many things to consider such as the cost of studying abroad in a particular country, the weather you like and other personal preferences such as the English variation you’d like to learn. Each location has something special to offer so remember to choose wisely… or don’t choose at all and visit all four of them.
