English for Young Learners

Young Learners residential spring and summer schools offer English language courses and a wide range of activities to children and teenagers.YL_inpage_1

Students aged 12 to 17 years old can spend from one to five weeks learning English in England’s historic city of Oxford. While our summer courses in Ellesmere, Shropshire, are available to children of 8 to 17 years old.

Active daily schedules include morning English classes with sporting, cultural and social activities in the afternoon and evening.

Weekly trips are planned to places of interest across the South, North and West of England and Wales.

The focus is on interactive English language learning. Students have plenty of opportunity to meet children of the same age and practise their new English language skills.

St Edward's historic buildings and private grounds provide a relaxing and safe environment for our students. 

More than an English language school

YL_inpage_3Our Young Learner spring and summer programmes focus on making the language learning experience fun.

English classes are fast-paced and interactive and students are encouraged to practise their new language skills during sports, cultural and social activities.

Activities range from football, basketball and swimming through to glass painting, drama and shopping. In the evenings student entertainment includes quiz nights, karaoke and fashion shows. 

A fun and intensive way to learn English

Students are immersed in the English language and use it every day. Interacting with other teenagers in real-life situations improves their English communication skills and fluency, and builds confidence in using the language.
