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 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 in 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.

Activities

The Junior summer programme includes a wide range of extra curricular activities.  Each week students will enjoy a sports activity, two afternoon tourist excursions, an entertainment activity and full day trip during the weekend. (See schedule for full details)

Accommodation

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