English Plus Activities

For teenagers who want to improve their English and have an unforgettable holiday


In English Plus Activities, students study English in the morning and go on activities in the afternoon.

In the morning classes, teachers focus on getting students to communicate in English, encouraging them to improve their fluency and learn vocabulary about upcoming acitivities.

The afternoon activities are a mixture of adventure activities, sight-seeing, and cultural excursions.

In the morning class, you will study:

  • Conversation
  • Reading and writing
  • Vocabulary
  • Pronunciation
  • Grammar

Small classes

English-only lessons

We have an experienced team of teachers who can teach a variety of English classes. Here are a few who teach English Plus Activities:
