Young Learners’ Courses
Our Young Learners’ Course help children and teenagers communicate with confidence, at school, in exams, on holiday and in life.
Specially designed for Young learners
We have a skills-based timetable specially designed with younger learners in mind and covering the language skills they will need now and in the future. We make the most of our young learners being in York in an English speaking environment. For a more detailed description of our Young Learners' Courses, follow this link.
Young Learners' Courses throughout the year
We run Young learners' Courses over Easter, during the Summer and in October. Each course follows the same structure but has a programme designed to make the most of the time of year in York, a truly year-round city!

Young Learners' English Courses in York for Children and Teenagers
York is a great city for Young Learners! Big enough to be interesting, small enough to be friendly and safe. Most of the shopping streets are traffic free and everything is within 30 minutes' walk of everything else! As one of the top tourist destinations in Europe, York has lots for students to see and do and we include a lot of the cities attractions, including the awe inspiring York Minster and some world famous museums, into our programme through our "Lessons Out". For our Young Learners' free time, York also has great shopping!
