"I often joke with my English students that they can't have their teacher on holiday with them,
"Well, now you can!"

Intensive four day English speaking courses with a difference:
If your answer to some or all of these is yes, then perhaps my weekend courses are for you.
My name is Ian Middleton and I am a travel writer and photographer and have also been teaching English as a second language for many years now. As a native of England, a travel writer and photographer, I have decided to combine my skills and experience to offer unique short break holidays for learners who want English speaking practice, travellers who want to get better photographs, or people interested in ancient Irish legends.

Speak more English than you would if you went on holiday by yourself
While taking a holiday to an English speaking country on your own might mean your get to speak English more often, in reality most people don't speak as much as they could. If you go with friends, you usually speak more among yourselves in your own language. If you go alone, you will still only speak English when necessary. With me you will all speak English on a daily basis as a group, and I will be there to help and encourage you when speaking to others.
Much better than taking a standard English course.
While there are many English courses you can take in England or Ireland, most of them are not much different than the ones you might take in your own country, other than getting a native speaking teacher. And you might get to speak a little English with your host family, and when you are out and about. But my weekend tours will be a much more fun way to learn. You will be out and about, visiting new places, doing a variety of activities, coming into contact with different people and using English in a much more natural, and useful way. All with your teacher there to help you.
As an experienced photographer, I will also help you get the best photos possible from your trip.
Most people think that it takes a great camera to get great photographs, but this is completely untrue. No matter what camera you have, I will show you some basic techniques and tips on how to understand your camera's limitations and how to get the best from whatever camera you own.
I also offer private lessons and walk and talk courses in Slovenia. Read more here:
