English Language Summer Courses for Teenagers aged 14-17

Our English Language summer courses are designed for your age group with lessons that support, challenge and engage you.  This course will develop your Global skills, critical thinking, fluency and confidence.

On your English Language Course at Isca you will:

  • learn to use your passive knowledge of English. You have studied grammar and structures at school- now learn to use them!
  • improve your listening, reading, writing and speaking skills.
  • develop the communication skills you will need for life in the 21st century.
  • use a course book with interesting topics and activities
  • take part in role-plays and group discussions with your international classmates.
  • enjoy project work and workshops designed to help you communicate more effectively and improve your collaboration skills.

How do we make sure you start learning on your first day? We will send you an online English Language test to take before you leave home. It tests your grammar, listening, writing, use of English and tells us your CEFR level.  Your class group will be organised and your teachers will prepare your first lessons before you arrive here.

Your teachers Each class has two professional teachers who plan your course together and teach the class at different times of the day.  We choose teachers who are enthusiastic and love teaching young people.

Your teachers will give you feedback during lessons. You will have regular homework and a weekly progress test.  In your first week, you will have a one-to-one tutorial with your main teacher who will give you advice about how to improve and the language areas you need to work on.  At the end of your course you will receive a leaving certificate showing your course dates and your CEFR level. You will also receive a personalised report with information about your strengths and guidance on how to improve your English.

And that’s not all ….

Our summer course programme with English lessons, sports, social activities and excursions will help you learn important life skills as you have fun.  Outside the classroom, you will have the choice of many different activities and sports. The professional coaches on our activity programme encourage you to learn new skills all while speaking in English!

Each week you will have:

  • one half day and one full day excursion by bus or train
  • a sports afternoon with a choice of sports and activities
  • three sports/social evenings

We want you to have a real learning experience that you will remember for life; talking to your English hosts at home, perfecting your serve with our tennis coach or even just getting ready to go on an excursion with your new international friends – all of these things makes an Isca summer unforgettable!

We want to congratulate for your efficient organisation. Our son Leonardo came back last Sunday very satisfied of his vacation in Exeter. The school was very helpful, he improved his English and he appreciated also all the activities in the spare time. The host family also was great!!! Thank you very much.

Dear Richard, I had Andrea on the phone and he is so happy to stay there! Every day is a great day for him and I feel that he will not forget this experience easily. Thank you for all you did for him, he is proud of himself and he shows a lot of interest in what he is doing at school. The family is great; he loves the food and their way of living. He spends a lot of time during the evening playing cards with the girls. Your school is for Andrea fantastic, he met nice guys and girls and the sports and outing are so well organised!!! Best regards
Mrs M, Italy
