Bournemouth, UK -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/22/2014 -- Between the 1st of June and 30th of August, the ETC International College provides specialised courses for anyone travelling to study English who are between ages 14 to 17. The Junior Programme is typically organized during the summer months and consists of a syllabus of 20 lessons or 15 hours of English courses per week. The lessons are held during the morning hours between 9.00 and 12.30. In case a student is unable to attend the courses during the predetermined schedule, special arrangements will be made for the afternoons.

For this summer, ETC International College has included additional activities in the Junior Programme in order to render the entire experience and stay in the UK as pleasant as possible. Students attending the Junior Programme can take advantage of the 1-day and the 1-half day excursions per week. During the 1-day trip, pupils will have the chance to visit major cities in the UK, such as London, Bath or Oxford. On the half-day excursion, students will visit local points of interests, such as the New Forest, Southampton or Winchester. Both ventures will include guided walking tours and entries to sites.

ETC strongly believes that the learning process has to be a fun and pleasant experience. As a result, they have added more activities for the afternoon and evening. In the afternoon, ETC pupils can play football or volleyball with their colleagues. Alternatively, they can choose to participate in treasure hunts or a cultural workshop. Students can also participate in the evening activities, which include Disco and DVD evening.

Students attending the Junior Courses will be provided with 3 accommodation options. The Host Family Accommodation entails that the pupil will be sharing a house with a friendly and thoroughly verified English host family. Pupils selecting the Host Family Accommodation option will benefit from ETC’s school transportation package, which includes bus and minibus services that are covering a wide area in Bournemouth.
