English Summer Camp for Teens is based at University College London (UCL) and the University of Westminster, both ideally located in the heart of the capital and perfect for more independent learners. The campus offers excellent learning and recreational facilities combined with an exciting activity program, allowing students to experience everything London has to offer. Excursions include visits to some of the city's top attractions such as the London Eye and the Tower of London.
With the Westminster classrooms just a short walk away from our UCL residence in fashionable Fitzrovia, this junior summer camp offers the best of all worlds. It is the ideal place for students looking for the London university experience in a supervised yet independent environment.
Our highly skilled teachers will deliver an academic syllabus including topics on Britain's capital, giving students the opportunity to get to know one of the most vibrant and interesting cities in the world!
The program is designed for 2 age groups: 12 - 15 and 16 - 19 years. Students study for 20 lessons per week in international classes of up to 15 students. Each lesson lasts for 50 minutes. On their first day students take a test to ensure they are placed in an appropriate level. There are five levels of study, from elementary to advanced. All students receive an end-of-course certificate.
All our teachers are graduates with recognised TEFL certificates, and are extensively briefed on the particular needs of young learners. The language is brought to life through a vibrant and functional approach. In addition to formal language skills training, lessons include project work, videos, games and use a wide variety of modern English language teaching resources.
