Language Courses Abroad for Young People

A language course abroad is a great opportunity for students of all ages to improve their language skills while having a fun holiday. For young students at school or just about to start university, a trip of this kind can also help to develop their confidence, independence and boost both their grades and future job prospects.

Our partner schools offer a variety of different programs specially designed for younger learners. These courses combine interactive teaching methods with exciting workshops and creative group activities to ensure they make as much progress as possible, whilst also enjoying themselves. Lesson groups are normally split by language level and age, with each age group's teaching style tailored accordingly and supervision outside the classroom arranged as appropriate.

Young learners tend to advance more quickly than adults and by being completely immersed in a new country and language they will be able to put their learning into practice 24/7. A language course abroad will also help them to understand why language skills are so important in addition to giving them an incredible holiday and the opportunity to make lots of new friends from all over the world!


Junior Schools

A Junior School is an individual school or defined, separate part of a language school that exclusively offers courses to young people. The minimum age (from seven years old) varies depending on the school, the course and the type of accommodation (normally in host family or a fully-supervised student residence). In a Junior School, students will find that they are in an environment not so different to their school at home, being separated by age groups and language level for their classes.

Holiday Camps

Holiday Camps are language courses abroad for young people that include, in addition to a language course, accommodation, meals and an activity program. Holiday Camp students live in a special student residence together, often within the same building as the school or very close by. These programs normally take place during common school holidays (such as in July and August in Europe). Holiday Camps take place both in exclusive Junior Schools and in language schools where there are courses for both adults and children or teenagers.

Junior Courses

Junior Courses are courses specially designed for children or teenagers that take place in junior schools or in normal language schools for adults. Unlike Holiday Camps, students live with a host family and their pastoral care will take place at home, rather than in the school. At a normal language school, younger students are taught in separate classes to the adults but all students will receive their lessons in the same school building.

Family Courses

Family Courses are language courses specially designed for families when both the adults and children would like to take language lessons. Timetables can be coordinated so that all members of the family take their classes at the same time, but in separate groups suited to their age group, so that they can spend their spare time enjoying their holiday together. Alternatively, children can take options combining lessons and activities so that the parents can spend some time together while the children enjoy the school's extra-curricular activity program. There are also sometimes special accommodation options available in combination with these courses, including larger apartments or family rooms.
