We offer over 100 teen summer courses and camps in 60 locations across 17 countries worldwide. Our programs take place during the summer break (between June and August) and offer a fantastic opportunity to learn a language in a safe, fun and international environment. Language tuition is coupled with varied and exciting activity programs, which cater to all kinds of interests. The programs normally run from 2-4 weeks.
What you can expect from a Junior language vacation:
- Quality language tuition provided by qualified & experienced teachers
- Safe & comfortable accommodation, either in vetted homestays or residences
- Healthy food, adapted to your child’s special dietary needs if necessary
- A mix of nationalities, so the practice of the language is guaranteed
- Full in-country care & support, including airport transfers and constant on-site supervision.
These programs, available for children from 5 to 18, provide a really valuable insight into foreign language, culture, customs and cuisine. They also offer students the chance to make friendships with other students from all over the world, and to gain a renewed incentive to practise the language back home - and hopefully breeze through the exams!
