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.
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.
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)
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.
