An unforgettable experience for Young Learners at our main centre in Cardiff.

Our Junior Winter Programme combines a varied social programme with engaging English lessons so that our younger learners and teens will experience a real Welsh Winter they’ll never forget in one of the top ten places in the world to visit.

Engaging English Lessons

We have carefully designed our Young Learner Course. In their lessons, our young learners will take part in communicative activities which are presented through interesting topics. These topics are suitable for younger learners and teenagers. By the end of their course, younger learners should have:

  • The ability to speak with improved accuracy and pronunciation

  • Improved levels of fluency and confidence

  • An extended range of vocabulary and grammar

  • Improved speaking, reading, listening and writing skills and

  • A better understanding of English-speaking cultures.

Super Social Activities

The excursions and activities available mean that our young learners and teens will have lots of opportunities to meet the other young learners on the programme. Our friendly and helpful staff make sure that our young learners are well looked after.

Our social programme offers lots of different activities, such as:

  • Enjoyable and informative visits to towns and cities such as Oxford and the Brecon Beacons National Park so that our young learners can discover some of the best sites in the UK. There will also be trips to local places of interest so that our young learners can learn more about the history and culture of Wales.

  • A good range of sports activities so that our young learners can keep fit and exercise. These include bowling and football.

Homestay accommodation

Living in homestay accommodation offers a unique experience and is one of the best ways to practice English outside the classroom. Our friendly and welcoming homestay providers are all carefully selected by our team to ensure that our younger learners are cared for.
