Summer Junior Programme Washington (students aged 12 to 18)
We think that during summer students should not learn only from textbooks, but they also ought to explore English in different situations and contexts. That is the reason why our social programme is so important. We spend a lot of time and energy providing students with the most interesting programme outside the classroom. This year we are going to cooperate with language school called International Language Institute. It is situated in Washington, D.C.
International Language Institute
Our partner school in Washington, D.C. was established more than 40 years ago and it is one of the most prestigious language schools in the area. Its pedagogical staff is made up of friendly native speakers. Students come from the USA but also many other countries.
Programme changes every week, which means that activities change every single week, but schedule is the same. Lessons start at 9:00 a.m. and end at 2:10 p.m. Students have a short morning break from 10:40 a.m. to 10:55 a.m. and a lunchbreak from 11:45 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. On the first day students will write a test and have an oral exam. They will be put into groups based on their skills (an online test, which should be taken before departure is available in SPEAK and students do it after consultation).
Host families are chosen very carefully and in accordance with American legislation. Student will be given name and information about the host family two weeks before departure. The host family spends time with students mainly on Sunday when they may go on various trips together. The family is fully responsible for the child and provides it with breakfast, lunch and dinner.
We need to know if you are interested as soon as possible. We need to pay the registration fee and deposit for flight ticket no later than 31.3.2022. The rest of the price has to be payed by 30.4.2022. The deposit is €1,000 and the sum of money needed for registration fee is €210. We will give you complete information about the host family early enough before the departure.
Flights and transports
Transport is very comfortable and effective. Students will fly from Vienna. Check-in will be made before departure. Transport to the city will be efficient and parents will arrange who will go by car, but also whom they could pick up. Price includes transfer from and to the airport. We will pick a person who will wait for you and hold a sign that they work for us.
Price includes an all-day programme from Monday to Friday + final certificate, one all-day excursion (Saturday), full board in the host family and Sunday programme with its members, transfer from and to the airport and also transport to and from school with a school bus. The price does not include only flight ticket and insurance. A recommended allowance is $70 for a week. We can give you a current price list and conditions of cancellation fees on request.
