General English Course for Young Learners

General

Program Description

Younger students love York; a safe and fun location to learn English.

The course offers a balance of grammar, speaking, reading, writing and listening. Each Saturday there is a full day excursion.

During the course we run afternoon/evening events including visits to the cinema, ten pin bowling, quizzes and a farewell party, all of which are included in the tuition fees.

Students on our Junior Courses are automatically enrolled on ‘Homestay Extra’; this includes full-board, a local bus pass and airport transfers. We take extra care when selecting homestay families and always try to help with special requests.

Lessons Out

York is a great city for students with lots to see and learn from in the streets, museums and historic buildings. To make the most of this, three afternoon lessons each week will be based in a museum, an attraction or involve an activity in the city.

  • 6 hours of lessons out per week
  • Maximum class size: 14
  • Average class size (2016): 8
  • Minimum age: 11 (10 on Winter Course)
