Course content

Unlike our other Young Learner English programmes, this course consists of English language lessons in the morning and in the afternoon, equating to 21 hours of tuition per week. It is designed to help students strengthen their English reading, writing, listening and speaking skills.

But it is not all hard work – English Plus classes are lively, interactive and fun. Students are encouraged to speak English at all times, and benefit from using the language with others their own age in different social situations.

In the afternoons, students will participate in sports, art and other activities to get them out of the classroom. Aimed at practising English through fun and teamwork, the English Plus programme proves that it is possible to work hard and still have fun!

Students will also enjoy one half-day and one full-day excursion per week to a site or city of interest. There are also evening social activities, such as fashion shows, quizzes, talent competitions and more.

Lessons 21 hours every week
Excursions 1.5 days every week
Other activities, including sports and arts and crafts. 20 hours every week




The English language exam (provided by LanguageCert) fee is included in the course price.
