Help your students develop their language skills through the medium of art. Bring your class for a tour of the galleries, specially adapted for learners of English as a Foreign Language (EFL).
The tours give a simple but focused overview of art through time, using several objects and paintings in the museum collection. By looking at these works, students develop their vocabulary and grammar and can practise speaking and listening skills.
- Suitable for: Teenage (14 years +) and adult EFL classes
- Duration: 45 minutes
- Group size: Minimum of 12 students; up to 20 learners
All tours are led by a trained museum professional and are graded appropriately for EFL beginners, intermediates and advanced learners. On booking, you’ll be sent a teacher’s Resource Pack that provides both pre-visit and post-visit graded activities.
Bookable on selected days between 3 September 2019 – 17 July 2020. Please enquire for details.
“Really well-graded language with visual support, the students felt really engaged. Very enthusiastically delivered. In all my years of trips like this, this is the best prepared and delivered.”
Tutor, City of Bristol College.
