Young Learners Summer Course 2019

Melton College is a great place to spend a few weeks in the summer.

We want our younger students to become confident communicators and confident individuals.

Young Learners love York; a safe and fun location to learn English. Older students enjoy exploring a top tourist city. For younger students, York is a safe city; big enough to be interesting, small enough to be friendly.

The course offers a balance of grammar, speaking, reading, writing and listening.

After lessons, students can choose from our after-class activities including and on three evenings each week we arrange activities in the College.  We also run a series of optional extra evening events (for a small additional payment) in the City. Each Saturday there is a full day excursion.

Students on our Summer Course are automatically on ‘Homestay Extra’; this includes full-board, a local bus pass and airport transfers.

Lessons Out

York is a really great city for students with lots to see and learn from in the streets, museums and historic buildings. To make the most of this, Lessons Out will be based in a museum, an attraction or involve an activity in the City.
