The course made my English better because I only speak English here and practise with my friends. I am really confident now and I can't wait to help my sister when I get home!

Last year I was here for 5 weeks and I couldn't stop talking with my friends at home about Bell. So I came back this year for longer. It's so much fun being here!

LESSONS

Project-based learning

Lessons are specifically designed to engage juniors and develop their critical skills at this key stage in their life. Our project-based learning approach means students work to produce something together while developing new skills, vocabulary and confidence using English.

This approach helps students learning faster and more successfully. It also guarantees that students will learn something new every time.

Summer themes for Juniors include:

  • My Body
  • You & Me
  • Super Food
  • Amazing Animals

ACTIVITIES

Learning everywhere

Led by a specialist Activity Leader, our junior-friendly activities open up opportunities for students to develop new interests in a variety or areas while practising their English. This helps students develop a natural, fluent use of the language.

In the evening, students also have an activity programme which includes various social events like competitions, treasure hunts and film nights.

STUDY TOURS

Gaining new life experiences

There is no better way to learn about British life and culture than to experience it for yourself. Our juniors will visit some of the UK’s famous destinations!

Study tours are so important to our learning approach. Students prepare for their study tour in class and have educational tasks to complete during their trip, this is then discussed in lessons afterwards.
