GCSE German - Intensive spoken language courses

My son is taking GCSE German and although he is reasonably confident writing it, he is not at all confident about speaking it and this is going to affect the oral part of his exam badly.

Does anyone know of any intensive spoken German courses that they can recommend in the London or Cambridge area, which he could attend during the holidays, possibly just a couple of days. Does anyone have any particular colleges or language specialist organisations they can recommend? - Many thanks.

(Wasn't sure whether to post under Education or Secondary Schools, so have done both!)

If you are near Cambridge you might be able to find some German student who would do some one to one with him.

There's the Goethe Institute in London, though it's quite expensive. Or could he do a German exchange? would be more fun for him, probably, if you can persuade him, and would have ten times as much impact. if it's definitely in the UK then presumably the crammers, of which there are loads in both London and Cambridge would run something.

How about a summer camp in Germany e.g. sailing camp or tennis camp? Or staying at a German/Austrian hotel with German speaking kids/youth club?

Otherwise the Goethe Institut, as Matsikula said, offers lots of German courses.
