Country Cousins is the founding company name that guarantees a premium service across its different education mediums. It offers education in language schools, in local English schools and complete immersions in Host Families. This way you will always speak to the same professionals and will benefit from their experience and our quality services.

Channel School is the Country Cousins base and a language school which offers a multitude of courses and academic programmes.

Country Cousins celebrated its 60th birthday in 2011! Founded in 1951, Country Cousins has earned a very good, long-standing reputation in the TEFL world.

Channel School is available all year for groups, and from Easter (please check availability) until September for individuals.

We would always recommend a 4 week visit. The first week students spend acclimatising and finding their way around. The second week they begin to relax and feel confident. The third week they completely settle down to the course and really begin making lasting friendships with their peers from other countries. The final week they really shine and are using their acquired English much more fluently and freely.

The maximum is 15 and the average is 12 students per class. They are of mixed nationalities in order to maximise students’ use of English.

Outside of the timetabled social programme, there are many optional after school activities (payable extra) on offer, such as riding, boat trips, day trips surfing and many more. Prices vary from approximately £6.00 – £50.00, and are available upon request. These trips are optional because students may choose instead to be with the family and follow their daily activities. We hope that these ‘optional’ activities will enable the students to discover some of the delights that North Devon has to offer during their stay, as an added bonus to the Activities already provided on their main programme. These activities will take place after school hours, or at the weekend, and will in no way interrupt the school curriculum. The above activities cannot be booked until the student arrives in the UK, so that the students already at the school do not miss out.

73% of our students do a 4 week course with us, which is the length of course we recommend to see a good improvement in the student’s level of English and make the most out of the visit. Most of the remaining students do a 2, 3 or 6 week course. We therefore run a 4 week social programme with a different daytrip each week. Two of those daytrips always include Exmoor National Park and Exeter (which are by far the most popular daytrips we offer). The other two daytrips can vary; we normally change them year after year because of returning students so that they do not repeat the same trips. If a student arrives when the Exeter trip has already taken place that month the excursion will not be repeated.

Only if the student has got assistance from a helper because it is an old two floor building with steps on a steep hill. It is not possible for disabled children who use wheelchairs to access the classroom or other parts of the building without a helper.
