We work with a select group of summer schools for young students in the UK, Ireland, the USA, Australia and Canada.
The range of programmes available for teenagers is quite extraordinary. You can choose from English plus music, English plus horse-riding, English plus football, as well as more academic and ambitious courses such as English for Leadership, English plus Robotics. It is also possible to mix the courses, for example, two weeks of English plus horse-riding followed by one week of English plus theatre.
The most popular programme is ‘English plus activities’ which is usually 15 hours of English lessons per week plus excursions, activities and sports. These courses are open to students of all levels – from beginner to high intermediate and low advanced levels.
Most accommodation is residential. There are also some homestay options. Most courses run from the first week of July to middle or late August.
There are hundreds of courses for juniors. It is important to choose a respected and recognised training centre. Prices range from around £700 (CHF 950) per week to £2400 (CHF 3200) per week for more specialised courses with world-renowned teachers and coaches in Harry Potter-like colleges and major universities such as Oxford and Cambridge.
