Junior Summer School

Experience life at a British secondary school - June 24th to July 19th 2019

LanguageUK offers a unique experience for students aged between 13 to 16 to improve their English skills whilst experiencing life at a British secondary school.  The classes focus on aspects of British culture and history and the students will also have the opportunity to take part in workshops with British school pupils. The themes of the classes are also related to the experience of staying in the UK.  Students can register from 1 to 4 weeks and the maximum number of students for each week is just 60.

The Abbey school is a British State school for 12 to 18-year-old pupils.

The school describes itself as a vibrant school offering exciting opportunities to their students whatever their ability. The Abbey school have welcomed LanguageUK and see this partnership as a valuable opportunity and experience for both British and foreign students.

Wherever possible, both LanguageUK and the Abbey School will aim to work alongside each other and try to encourage the students to meet. Every day the LanguageUK students will eat in the school canteen alongside the British school pupils.

Other possibilities with the Abbey school may include attending a school assembly, taking part in a school sports activity or a lesson. What we are able to organise is subject to the Abbey School’s timetable and holiday periods.

Course Structure

Weekly lessons

The students can study from a choice of lessons relating to:

  • British school life
  • Aspects of British culture
  • History and information related to the trips and activities the students will attend

All lessons will focus on communication, encouraging the students to improve their fluency skills, particularly speaking and listening skills. The students will study elements of British culture through class workshops and project work relating to some of the activities and events outside class time. This not only provides an opportunity to recycle new language, but also creates a focus and task through which to practise it.

Throughout their project work the students will also practise and develop other useful skills, such as conducting research, designing surveys, analysing and presenting data, taking part in role plays and producing different writing genres.

Integration with the Abbey School pupils

The students will be given an opportunity to meet and work with the Abbey School pupils. Examples of this are as follows:

  • One workshop per week.
  • A school tour by the Abbey school pupils followed by a question and answer session.
  • Meeting in the school canteen everyday.

Please note: The amount of time spent with the Abbey school pupils does depend on the restrictions of the weekly curriculum at the school and the availability of the Abbey school teaching staff.
