The Winter English Junior Program is available to students from 10 to 18 years of age. Minimum age for the Full Package with host family accommodation is 12 years of age. If the student is under 13, all Day Programs will require a parent or guardian (over 18 years of age) to accompany the student to and from the school.
Unfortunately, we do not offer this program in Boston in 2018. Please review our 2018 Junior winter programs in New York City and Miami.
Winter Junior Program is held on campus located less than a minute's walk from North Station and the TD Garden, close to all of Boston's world famous attractions. It is an all inclusive program and built for students ages 10 to 18 years old. Students come from all over the world to learn, make friends, and explore the city in a safe environment. The program is a combination of English classes, activities, and excursions throughout Boston - all with the 24/7 supervision of our staff.
The program includes Intensive Group English classes. You have class for 15 hours a week, 100% in English. Our students come from all over the globe, and we have a variety of levels of English. We place you in a class with students who are at the same level as you, so you can learn in the right environment.
Winter Junior Program has been designed to allow the students the opportunity to spend the first half of their lesson time learning functional, communicative language in the classroom and then going out to local places with the teacher to put the new language to use.
Our teachers are fun, dedicated, enthusiastic, and highly qualified. All of our teachers hold the University of Cambridge CELTA certification, the most widely recognized qualification of English teaching. In addition, each teacher has been specially trained to teach young learners.
In the morning students will attend their own lessons, then in the afternoons the students will join the school activities where they will have the chance to further practise their English by mixing with the other nationalities attending the school.
The syllabus consists of a series of tasks ranging from questionnaires and surveys to information gathering activities which the students complete with guidance from the teacher.
The maximum size of our classes is 15 students, so you will have a very personal experience with your teacher. Your class will be full of students from all over the world, so you will have no choice but to speak English to communicate with your new friends!
Accommodations. We offer full board accommodation with local host families, double bedrooms, shared bath.
We considers safety one of the most important aspects of its program and we put a huge amount of effort into ensuring that the students have a great time while being safe.
Students are monitored by our staff and host families at all times and we maintain a safe student to staff ratio.
