Nab Cottage began as a family, a language school, and an international community in 1983. At the school, students and teachers live together and study together, so there is continuous interaction in English. It is in the centre of the Lake District National Park, an area of outstanding beauty and tranquillity, which is currently being considered for World Heritage status. The school overlooks a small lake and is surrounded by mountains.
There are different courses available at Nab Cottage. The General English For Adults course usually runs from June to September. People can enrol on any Sunday and stay for between 1 and 13 weeks. Each week is made up of 35 contact hours and includes: Large Group/Whole Community Sessions to establish confidence, Small Group Classes, which are organized in groups with 4 to 9 students of the same level and concentrate most of your work at the school; One To One Sessions (weekly tutorials with a teacher); Guided Study Sessions and Small Group Activity Sessions. Other courses offered by Nab Cottage include Closed Group Courses, designed for groups or companies, English & Yoga, English & Walking, One-to-one courses (which can be booked apart from the general courses) and Experiential English for Teachers.
