Summer School, English immersion with native teachers
St. George School organises en English immersion Summer School with native teachers each year during the month of July, so that children from 3 to 10 years old can learn and improve their English without ever having to leave Spain!
Throughout the camp, the children learn English without even realising it and do sports, aquatic activities, workshops and arts & crafts while surrounded by children of many different nationalities. In addition, our teachers are specially trained to teach each Key Stage and place great emphasis on the social, intellectual and physical development of every pupil.
At our Summer School, children learn through fun, enjoyable games and follow English classes combining revision with a playful approach to ensure that the language is easily assimilated.
This year’s camp will take place at the school’s current facilities on Carrer de la Esperanza, 13. From next year, the Summer School will be held at St. George School’s new facilities on an extensive 1 hectare plot at Paseo Reina Elisenda de Montcada, 18.
The Summer School is a day camp aimed at 2 different age ranges.
Infants – suitable for our youngest learners, from 3 to 6 years old. Taught by native English teachers specifically trained in early years education. While they’re learning the language that will aid them in the future, they will also enjoy workshops, crafts, sports, water activities and much more.
Juniors – the perfect programme for children aged from 6 to 10 years old. Just like being in England without ever leaving Barcelona. Native teachers adapt the programme to each age range, and the children learn while they cook, perform musical activities and play sports..
n addition, St. George offers the possibility of signing up for only the weeks that you need, as well as bus routes from different areas of Barcelona. Learning while having fun is the most effective way, and if you also do it with your friends, even better.
