Languages are best learned when students are young. And what better way to improve your English than on a summer course in the UK? The Junior English Programme provides students with over 16 hours a week of taught classes, and ample opportunity to practise their new-found skills with their peers from all over the world - as well as native English speakers in the UK.
At the core of the Junior English programme is rigorous, immersive tuition by ORA's highly qualified junior English teachers. Outside of class, students will immerse themselves in a multi-cultural environment, and they will develop their ability to communicate with people from different cultures and countries. ORA promotes a coherent and multi-cultural approach to English language learning, actively expanding students’ abilities and encouraging them to share ideas.
The Junior English Programme is designed to provide students aged 8-10 with the opportunity to improve their English in all areas - speaking, reading, writing and listening. This will be achieved through formal study and informal opportunities to improve English outside of class.
Students who hope to live or study in the UK, or another English-speaking country in the future, will benefit from Oxford Royale’s world-class EFL teaching faculty, who ensure that their students are engaged through modern, interactive teaching methods. Cultural excursions will provide plenty of opportunity for students to hone their new-found skills in a native English-speaking environment.
If you are an Intermediate level (B1) English speaker, and would like to improve your fluency in an English-speaking environment while enjoying a range of additional activities, then this course is for you.
Tuition covers all of the key English areas:
During this intensive EFL course, students will immerse themselves in the English language in its native environment, focussing on the finer points of grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, speaking, listening, reading, writing, colloquial and cultural English.
Student learning is maximised in small class sizes. Our EFL teachers use dynamic, interactive and fun student-centred teaching methods, and courses are integrated with cultural activities and excursions outside of the classroom to provide context and practical application opportunities.
By the end of the course, students will have quickly improved their English skills for general contexts, built their confidence in their use of spoken English, and developed their knowledge of English grammar, syntax and vocabulary. They will have improved their English reading and writing skills, discovered the importance of independent learning, and gained an insight into various aspects of British culture.
