Why Choose Junior Summer Study?
For students of an upper-intermediate level of English and above, for an additional cost we offer an engaging alternative to General English lessons with our Junior Summer Study course. Students will benefit from a varied programme and learn through a content-based learning approach, building their confidence and language fluency through the study of other subjects. Our Junior Summer Study course has been designed specifically for 8 to 12-year-old young learners by our experienced and creative team of course writers, and students have the fantastic opportunity to learn in a communicative and multinational environment.
What You’ll Learn
Junior Summer Study develops language learning through the study of other subjects, including English Literature, Creative Writing, History, Geography and Science. Students are encouraged to be creative and engage in classroom discussions, debates and fun topic-based activities. The focus on spoken interaction enables students to activate what has been learned about the subjects studied.
How You’ll Learn: Time To Shine
Each week, every student will participate in a series of dynamic tasks and team projects during our Time to Shine lessons. During these lessons they will be challenged and motivated to use English in an imaginative and productive way. Previous Time to Shine challenges include the construction of a successful marble run and the building of working cardboard boats.
What You’ll Take Away
We believe students learn best when they are actively applying language in practice, demonstrated by our communicative approach and focus on 21st century skills. Through this, each student is encouraged to develop both their understanding and confidence in using English, as well as key skills needed for success in their future learning, such as teamwork and creativity.
