Programme Description

Richard Organisation was founded in 1928 by Monsieur Richard, a teacher who wanted to give young learners the opportunity to better their lives through the experience of learning English in England in the beautiful area of Bournemouth.

He believed the educational value of a stay in England was not limited just to the classroom, but also through a programme of activities, sports and the experience of staying with an English family. This view is still followed today.

The current programme has lessons in the mornings followed by a variety activities, sports and excursions to places in the beautiful Bournemouth area in the afternoons.

This fully-supervised programme is ideal for those who wish to combine a thorough study of English with a varied activity, sports and excursions programme while making friends from all over the world.

The CLAS junior programme takes place at Richard Language College in Bournemouth.
