 Juniors programme (13-17)Canterbury 
Duration: 2 weeks

I went to Canterbury for 2 weeks and I found my language study trip absolutely amazing! I received a very friendly welcome when I arrive on King’s school campus and immediately felt comfortable there. On the campus, you could not get bored! There were volleyball and football pitches, common rooms, and so much more. The activity leaders and teachers were really great! Even though the English accent was quite difficult to understand at first, we came to understand it gradually. I met many people from the whole world and it will remain forever engraved in my heart. During my stay, I built strong ties, which I would never have thought possible within only two weeks. The activities were great, thrilling and very varied. Every morning, we attended courses and they were really good, especially thanks to the teachers and the fabulous classes. Then we had lunch in immense dining halls and the food was delicious. I am very happy that I went to Canterbury and above all, that I chose ESL to organise my trip. I wish I had stayed longer than 2 weeks. It was sad to say goodbye to my friends but I’m trying to keep in touch! I hope to go back there very soon!

“I didn’t want to go to a big city like London, so Canterbury suited me very well. The benefit of learning English in England is improving my pronunciation! I loved exploring cool cities that I’ve never been to before, like Oxford. My favourite activities were the Karaoke night, because it was funny, and the disco, of course! My new friends came from Germany, Spain, Italy and France and I really hope that I will stay in contact with them when we go back home! I would definitely recommend it to my friends and family as it is well organised and I’ve really enjoyed my time here. My advice to my friends who are thinking about coming here is to not always stay with people from your country, and to have friends who finish on the same day, as it’s so sad when we have to say goodbye before my time is up at Canterbury!”

St Augustine residence
This student residence is located right on campus, just 5 minutes' walk from the course centre. You'll have breakfast, lunch and dinner in one of the two on-site restaurants, except in the case of excursions where you'll receive a packed lunch. Your room will be a single, double or triple with a sink, and bathrooms are shared. A cleaning service is available once a week, and there are vending machines where you can buy snacks. You'll be able to meet your new friends in the lounges, equipped with a TV and comfortable chairs for relaxing. Otherwise, you may prefer to spend time outside on the sports grounds!

After classes, you will meet up with the other students for the activities programme. And in Canterbury, sport is king! It has an important place among the activities proposed every week by the school. You can practise football, basketball, bowling and swimming in order to let of steam after class. Unless you would prefer to enjoy yourself in the disco evenings or participate in the outings dedicated to shopping and visits to local attractions like the boat trip on the Stour River. To complete the programme, every week, two half-day and two full-day excursions give you the chance to discover the neighbouring cities like London, Brighton, Eastbourne or Hastings. With such a programme, you don't risk getting bored with your new international friends!
