Online courses for teenage school groups

We offer tailor-made courses for our groups of teenage students.

Our programmes are designed to the same high standard as our adult courses, and planned to meet your group’s needs, interests and requirements.

Our tutors use lively, stimulating materials suitable to our young students, with a focus on speaking, listening and vocabulary development. The materials provided include a variety of materials, worksheets, video and audio resources.

We can also help your students prepare for the exam such as Cambridge First B2 and Cambridge Advanced C1.

We have experienced, well-qualified teachers who are carefully chosen for their experience and enthusiasm for working with younger learners and for their suitability to teach this age group.

Students must be aged 14-16 and classes must be organised in groups of 4-8 students. Lessons can be set for 30, 45 or 60 minutes.

How does it work?

You can choose your preferred platform (Zoom, Skype, Google Hangouts). If you choose Zoom, click here for a demo.

We recognise that sitting in front of a computer is not always comfortable. Therefore, depending on the package you choose (number of daily lessons, length of lessons, etc), we can arrange for an online session followed by an offline session focusing on work set by the teacher. Students can then return for another online session of work with classmates and the teacher. Overnight work is usually set daily.

However, we are open to different combinations, so please feel free to contact us to discuss options.
