JUNIOR ONLINE SUMMER COURSE
(10 hours per week)
The Junior Online Summer Course is designed for students aged 12 to 18 years old. It is not a replacement for our regular junior course in New York, as we know nothing can replace an immersion experience abroad. We are offering this online course as an alternative for our students, so that they can learn English and stay social through our online activities even if they cannot travel this summer.
This 3 week program will take place from July 6th – 24th and gives students the chance to take 30 hours of English lessons with our trained teachers and attend fun activities with other young students from other countries, all from the comfort of their home. This is a great opportunity for students to stay connected with their peers, and for parents to keep their teens occupied for a few hours a day!
How It Works
We use the platform Zoom to conduct all of our online classes. We have already been using Zoom for several weeks in order to deliver our adult English classes, so our teachers are already experienced with this online platform. Not only is Zoom extremely user-friendly, but it offers our teachers the tools they need to foster a truly communicative classroom environment including live annotation, break-off rooms, chat groups, class polls, and more. Zoom also allows for students to see and interact with each other in real time, giving our students a real classroom experience.
Lessons will take place Monday-Friday for 2 hours each day. Our qualified teachers use a communicative teaching approach to encourage students to interact and use the language as much as possible. Students will be tested before the start of the program and grouped together according to their English level. Once they are placed in a level, they will receive a Zoom link in order to join the session online. It’s that easy!
Activities will take place after a short break following the English lessons. We have compiled an exciting program of online activities designed to help students come out of their shell and practice their English while having a great time. Students will participate in a wide variety of activities and games including Who’s Who, talent shows, Pictionary, scavenger hunts, film reviews, and more.
