The programme channels the energy and creativity of young people into the real life achievements of academic results and personal growth. Students graduate from their summer programmes inspired for further study with new language skills, international friendships, wider horizons and lasting memories. The courses for young learners focus on developing students’ confidence using English by developing the real- world skills necessary for life in an increasingly globalised world.

There is a maximum of 8 students in each class. This allows the teachers to give each student more attention and allows the students to engage more fully with the language and make faster progress. Lessons are fast-paced and encourage the students to engage with authentic English language materials. Challenging and creative homework encourages the development of autonomous learning skills, and takes learning out of the classroom and into everyday life.

The demanding Academic programme starts with Living Language, which encourages learners to explore the English language as it is really used, and fosters an interest in and enjoyment of the intricacies of language. This is followed by Spoken Performance Workshop, which features presentations, drama and debates. This challenges the students by focusing on pronunciation, intonation, voice projection and the ability to perform under pressure.

The syllabus includes a project component in which the students work in small teams to produce and present a project to their fellow students and others. Team Project fosters an ability to interact with others and involves problem solving and helps to incorporate new language in a meaningful context.
