Upper-Intermediate / Advanced Summer Course for Teens

This course gives Upper-Intermediate/Advanced teens the opportunity to become more confident English-speakers and consolidate their language abilities in an enjoyable and positive learning environment.

The intensive format means that learners are able to revise and expand upon what they have learnt in previous lessons while also acquiring new skills and knowledge each day. Our approach is to make learning a language as fun and exciting as possible with a strong emphasis on speaking more fluently.

This course incorporates various topics and areas of language learning, including:

  • Displaying strong communicative ability in conversation and presentations
  • Using grammar and vocabulary in realistic contexts
  • Becoming a stronger listener and reader
  • Strategies for better writing through creative group projects
  • Engaging with the English language through the news, music, movies and online media
  • Using new technology in an engaging and educational way
 

This course has been tailor-made for teenagers with a variety of up-to-date topics and relevant communicative activities designed to engage and stimulate adolescent learners to use English in a fun and practical way.

Not only will learners have the opportunity to speak English every day, but they will also get the chance to meet new people of their own age and build new friendships.

Reviews for this course

 What our students say about us

  • My experience with Kickstart has been highly beneficial in both developing language skills and improving my knowledge of the Dutch culture. Josien's support is always spot on and very intuitive in relation to personal circumstances. She spends a lot more than the official time allocated to really get to know her clients and her approach is customised accordingly. She was recommended to me by other Shell colleagues who expressed the same sentiment and I was fortunate enough to benefit from this during the time I spent with her.

  • Entering the Kickstart school premises alone gives you a push of energy and the commitment this will help to create is hardly unmatched in any other language school. The methodology and the approach used in the lessons also helps smoothly unlock the secrets of everyday Dutch. Kickstart School has helped me get in touch with the 'undutchable' culture of the Netherlands and its people. The individual language training I could experience at Kickstart School has been one of the best educational experiences I could have in Europe.

  • I really enjoyed my English lessons with the Kickstart School. The teacher was professional and really knew the subject. The way they teach is also great! The classes are presented in a clear and professional manner and the online exercises completed at home are very helpful. The teacher always provided useful feedback. It's a great experience to join a Kickstart course with such a friendly atmosphere of students and teachers.

  • Kickstart has been the ideal place for me to learn. The teachers are very helpful and friendly and have always gone the "extra mile" to help me learn in a positive way. Their teaching is practical with elements that can immediately be applied to everyday living situations. Included in the lessons are cultural aspects of living in the Netherlands that make learning Dutch dynamic and fun; you learn the language and about the place and the people! The teachers took an active interest in my progress and provided valuable customized sessions that maintained my strengths and developed my weaknesses; all in a patient, fun and friendly style.

  • My first contact with Kickstart School was after 1 month of living in The Netherlands, when I started to study Dutch. At the time I didn’t have any knowledge of the language, but with their courses organized by levels I developed important language skills and learned about the Dutch culture. They all do a great job at Kickstart because their motto it’s not just a motto – they are really pleased to teach you. You learn a language in a friendly atmosphere, make new friends from all over the world, and all in a cosy building right in the heart of The Hague.

    Anca Boros, mathematics and physics teacher from Romania

  • During my time with Kickstart I have learned a lot and gained confidence. I was always challenged by the interesting assignments, but never too much. I have really enjoyed the classes!

It’s a bit cloudy and windy outside (The Netherlands, you know…) but I know the perfect place to be. A hidden […]
