A smiling girl

This summer we are traditionally running our summer intensive online courses for kids and teens. 

Despite all the complications and challenges thrust by the ongoing war, we know that continuing to support young learners in improving their English language skills is as important as ever and we remain committed to making that happen.

We have two distinct offers available:

  • Summer Academic courses for Primary and Secondary 
  • Summer International courses for Secondary (only) 

Summer Academic courses (6-17 y.o.) have an academic focus and provide a balanced, natural, and enjoyable development of all skills (speaking, listening, reading, and writing) and language systems (grammar, vocabulary, and pronunciation). Courses also incorporate key 21st-century skills such as creativity, collaboration, and digital literacy. For Upper Secondary students (14-17 y.o.), we also offer IELTS preparation courses.

Summer International (11-17 y.o.) is a new programme in which secondary students can enjoy a totally immersive international experience. Classes take place with British Council classmates from other countries in Europe. This programme will allow your child to develop language in an international classroom and acquire all the confidence for an international academic future. 

All our courses will be delivered online. Each course runs for two weeks and takes place either in the morning or afternoon from Monday through Friday.

What students will learn

Summer Academic for Primary (6-10 y.o.)

These courses are designed for children who still need support to be able to read and write confidently and focus 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 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.

Summer Academic for Lower Secondary (11-13 y.o.)

These courses give younger teenage learners a truly rewarding learning experience, improve their understanding of the language, and develop skills in interacting in English. Our lesson approach promotes communication and develops critical 21st Century Skills, providing real contexts to practise everyday language and share ideas about the teens’ goals, dreams, and global issues.

Summer Academic for Upper Secondary (14-17 y.o.)

These courses develop 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.

IELTS Preparation courses for Upper Secondary (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.

Summer International for Secondary (11-17 y.o.)

These courses encourage teenagers to improve their ability to communicate in English in an international environment as well as develop the core 21st-century skills they need to use confidently, such as collaboration and critical thinking. Students will develop a wide range of resources to speak in English through participating in a series of interactive tasks such as role-plays, debates, plays, and presentations. These courses also offer enjoyable and alluring optional extras to allow students to engage and have fun in English via solving quizzes and escape rooms.
