The course offers a unique opportunity for young people to take an intensive course that corresponds to the needs of their age group, in an encouraging and supportive environment.

At the beginning of the course students are tested on their existing English ability and are divided into appropriate groups of no more than eight students according to their level.

In the morning classes are focused on the development of oral and written expression and comprehension, study of grammatical structures and development of vocabulary.

In the evening, workshops focusing on oral communication promote fluency and correct inaccuracies in pronunciation. Confidence in English is built through interesting discussions, presentations and creative writing.

The programme is concluded with half an hour of leisure, culture and sports in the afternoon. These activities vary from school to school and allow students to practise using the language outside the classroom and in different contexts.
