As per usual, this year we are running our Summer Intensive Courses for young learners. But this year has been an exceptional one due to the disruption caused by COVID-19. In response to this, this year's Summer Intensive Courses will have an even more rigorous academic focus.

We are offering 40-hour courses that will boost your child’s grammatical accuracy, increase their speaking confidence and develop their vocabulary. We have doubled the number of study hours per Summer Intensive Course, which gives your child the perfect opportunity, not only to catch-up with their English studies, but if you combine three consecutive summer intensive courses together, this will equate to 120 hours of study and a full academic year!

Each Summer Intensive Course will run for 2 weeks between 10.00 to 14.30 on weekdays throughout the Summer. The focus is on the balanced, natural and enjoyable development of all skills (speaking, listening, reading and writing), language (grammar and vocabulary), as well as the incorporation of 21st-century skills such as creativity, collaboration and digital literacy. It is offered at all CEFR levels from Beginner to Upper-Intermediate and for all life stages from Primary (6-10-year-olds) to Secondary (11-17-year-olds), taking into account the different ways children learn English at various life stages. 

Summer Intensives will be delivered in our premises in the centre of Kyiv at 29 Zhylianska Street. 

For Upper Secondary students, we also offer online IELTS preparation courses.

Primary (6-10 y.o.)

The British Council Primary Summer Intensive is designed for children who still need support to be able to read and write confidently, and focuses also on developing their speaking and listening skills. The course gives learners a confident start to learning English and, in addition, enhances the learners’ cognitive development. Learners are physically active during lessons and develop their English through songs, rhymes, games and many more fun activities. This dynamic and involving course develops the whole child and supports them in reaching their full potential. Motivating activities and project work give them tangible evidence of their accomplishments and the focus on conversational practice provides learners with the tools they need to use English in and outside of school.

Lower Secondary (11-13 y.o.)

The British Council Lower Secondary Summer Intensive gives younger teenage learners a truly rewarding learning experience, improves their understanding of the language and develops skills at interacting in English. Our lesson approach promotes communication and develops critical 21st Century Skills, providing real contexts to practice everyday language and share ideas about the teens’ goals, dreams and global issues.

Upper Secondary (14-17 y.o.)

The British Council Upper Secondary English Summer Intensive develops teenage learners’ all-round English ability. The course programme presents learners with a variety of options for language practice and allows them to become active participants in the learning process. It goes beyond building strong language skills to developing the whole learner with an emphasis on critical thinking, positive values, and healthy self-esteem.

Online IELTS Intensive (14-17 y.o.)

A special 20-hour course to prepare young learners for the internationally recognised IELTS exam, a very useful qualification for students wishing to study abroad. It focuses on the techniques and strategies needed to develop exam skills, but the learners will be able to use these skills in numerous other academic situations.
