As the new school year is moving into a full swing, parents and teachers alike might start pondering an overseas English learning programme to help take students’ English to the next level. EduTravelBright, your educational consultant with insider knowledge of youth exchanges and language stays across Europe, hopes to assist you in making the best choice in the best of your students’ interests.
Over the past years, the upsurge in demand for study tours from Hong Kong, Taiwan and China has unfortunately also allowed the co-existence of quality programmes with poor-value-for-money tours. The latter resemble more package tours than a genuine purpose-built learning and intercultural experience for young people - Day-in, day-out groups of students comprising mainly native Chinese speakers learn, play and live within the same group. Such an imbalance in the international student mix during the language stay will defeat the purpose of giving Chinese students a maximum exposure to the English language everywhere in an English speaking country.
All these can be changed for the better with our exclusive ELI Junior Programmes – Total language and cultural immersion guaranteed!
Join ELI’s Junior Course and get a lifetime of experience and memories of uniquely Irish hospitality, learning and new friendships formed in the quietness of a charming rural setting in the county town of Carlow, just one hour from Dublin, the Irish capital.
