Come Along with the Family
Trinity Language Centre (TLC) welcomes families to come to study and learn in North Wales together. North Wales is an ideal location for family residential visits providing a stimulating, friendly and relaxed learning environment. Study visits focus mainly on the English language, but can also incorporate UK culture and areas of specific interest. We offer this package to families so that they can combine both a leisurely visit with an educational visit with us.
Places are available throughout the year. They normally last from 1 to 3 weeks but may last longer for those wishing to enjoy an extended period in North Wales. The prices may vary according to the duration and the time of year.
All fees and prices are subject to negotiation and agreement and a quote can be provided upon request.
The family arrives in Liverpool Airport early in the morning, and then are met by our airport transfer service who take you to Llandudno along the scenic North Welsh coast. The family can spend the day exploring the picturesque Victorian town, and familiarising themselves with the beautiful scenery.
Breakfast is served at 8. The morning will be spent in a tailored lesson in the morning, which will teach them common phrases used in homelife, which the family can use when they return home and in common situations around Trinity House.
In the afternoon, the children will go to Bodafon farm, a local farmlife petting zoo, which gives the children a great opportunity to use all that animal vocabulary learnt in school.
In the evening, there is an English language karaoke, where the children and adults can sing together.
Breakfast is served at 8, where the family has a choice of breakfasts. An English-language cooking workshop is held during the morning, where the parents and children can cook scones, a traditional British cake in an English-medium environment together.
In the afternoon, the children will go on the Alice in Wonderland trail, an informative and entertaining walk around Llandudno, which explains it's connections to the fantastical characters of Alice in Wonderland and it's author, Lewis Carroll.
In the evening, the family will take part in one of our ''Living English'' activities, which are, once again, entirely conducted in English.
After breakfast, the family will go on an excursion into the nearby Snowdonia national park, where they will see the breathtaking mountains and rivers. They will also visit the scenic town of Llanberis, as well as visit the world-renowned National Slate Museum of Wales to learn about Wales' history and connection to the stone, and it's impact on the economy and history of the area.
Upon return, the family will have a relaxed evening with which to recover from their tiring day in the mountains.
After breakfast on Saturday, the family can spend the day exploring Llandudno and the local area. This is a good day to say goodbye to the town, buy souvenirs and relax in preparation for the journey back the next day.
After breakfast, the children will be in one of our tailored English lessons. Following this, in the afternoon, they will go for a gentle stroll up happy valley on the side of the Orme. There's lots to see and do there, and if you are lucky, you might catch a glimpse of one of the Orme's special goats.
In the evening, the children can bond together during our crabbing activity, where everyone can share in the delight of fishing for crabs in the cool seawater in the bay of Llandudno.
Friday will be spent visiting the nearby historic walled city of Chester, founded by the romans, and located in a central spot in the history of both Wales and England, Chester provides a wealth of historical information and attractions, such as the roman ampitheatre, the medieval town walls and the beautiful cathedral. Chester also has a lot of shops that are always popular with visitors.
In the evening, the family will watch an English language movie on our large TV in the social area, with handmade popcorn.
After breakfast on Sunday, our airport transfer service will take the family back to the airport ready to go home, hopefully with some great memories and an improved level of English.
