Junior Programmе Summary

The Erin School of English Junior Programme is a complete educational programme specifically designed for teenagers during the summer months.
It combines morning English classes with afternoon activities and excursions. All students stay with a host family only a short bus journey away from the school. Arrangements can also be made for full board or self-catering residencies if preferred.

English Class

Students study General English for 15 hours every week. The classes are 3 hours in duration from 9:00 to 12:15 Monday to Friday. We use the online Cambridge English Placement Test prior to arrival followed by a speaking test on the students’ first day to place them at the correct level. This is a highly respected and accurate placement test which tests students’ reading, listening, and linguistic ability. Access to the online test will be arranged subsequent to booking.


The Junior summer programme includes a wide range of extracurricular activities. Each week students will enjoy an entertainment activity and a full-day trip during the weekend. (See schedule for full details)

Throughout the junior programme our students stay with a host family. Our host families are carefully selected and all live within a short commute to the school. Students receive full board accommodation.
