from 9 to 17 yers old
Thanks to our well-balanced programmes which combine teaching and leisure, the CERAN Academy offers JUNIORS from 9 to 17 years old language immersion courses in 2 different countries. From beginners to advanced, all levels are welcome to learn in groups of maximum 7 to 9 students following 2845-minute lessons per week. The lessons and activities are organised by language level and age group.
The CERAN Academy offers intensive courses for JUNIORS in 4 different languages: French, English, German and Dutch (please enquire about other languages for which we can offer individual programmes).Each student practises the target language throughout the day for a better assimilation of knowledge, including during organised leisure activities.
The courses allow young learners to gain confidence, improve their communication skills, activate their knowledge, overcome difficulties experienced at school or simply start learning a new language.
CERAN Academy students all benefit from 28 45-minute group lessons per week(equivalent to 21 hours of classes), including speaking, reading and comprehension lessons in the morning, while the afternoon is dedicated to writing lessons and projects in which the language is put into practice.Vocabulary and grammar are taught through the practice of everyday situations such as introducing oneself, giving one’s opinion on current affairs or the study of different themes which lead to multimedia presentations, exhibitions of paintings, photographs or videos.
It is possible to add extra individual lessons each day - 2, 4, 6 or 8 lessons more during the week - in order to work on a specific difficulty, a gap, to prepare for a school exam or international tests such as Cambridge,TOEFL, DALF, etc.
Each student will be offered 19sessions of recreational activities per week. On Wednesdays,Saturdays and Sundays, a full day excursion or sports, cultural or multimedia activities will be scheduled in connection with the week’s educational project.
