Junior International Summer Schools
Junior English Language & Activity Programme - Dublin
Learning should be fun...
CES has a number of different options for the younger learner. We have junior summer centres in Dublin, Navan, Wexford and Waterford. We at CES feel that learning English should be fun. We recruit teaching staff for our junior centres who will motivate and encourage junior students to build on the English they already know. The morning is divided into two sessions and you will usually have two teachers. The first session concentrates on reading, writing skills and key grammar. The class is organised so that learning is fun, resulting in steady progress. After the mid-morning break you will concentrate on improving your oral skills using role-play, debate, project work and learning about your surroundings in Ireland and the cultural places you will visit during your stay.
This programme is open to all students aged bewteen 13 - 17 years of age.
CES have run this Junior International English Language & activity programme since 1979. Over the last 30 years we have welcomed thousands of students from all over the world. Our top nationalities in Ireland are as follows:
Italian - Spanish - German - French - Swedish - Austrian - Polish - Czech - Japanese - Russian - Hungarian - Swiss - Taiwanese
CES Junior Summer Centres have been chosen for their excellent academic and sports facilities. They are conveniently located close to our homestays, in mature suburbs. All are convenient to public transport links. Sports facilities include playing fields and gyms. These facilities allow CES to arrange a very varied and challenging sports and activity programme.
We want you to enjoy your stay with us so we have organised an action-packed programme at each of our centres. You will visit historical places, take part in a lot of activities, arts and crafts, dance and sports, make lots of new friends and go to school discos or other arranged evening activities. In addition there are full day Saturday tours to places of historical interest or to towns and villages with cultural places of interest.

This programme combines golf lessons with Professional Golf Tutors, work with woods and irons and actualpractice on a course. Golf professionals work with each group and there will be a play-off on the final day for the CES trophy.
Junior English Language & Rugby Programme
This is a new course in 2010. Between 5 - 23 July students can can a 2 weeks programme that combines an English language course with 9 afternoons professional Rugby coaching! Any aspiring rugby players will love this programme that covers all areas of teh modern game!
24-hour care 7 days a week!
The Directors and staff are available throughout the day and the night as we realise how important it is that parents know their children are with caring and responsible people. Young students can be homesick, get lost or need medical care at any time, so our staff are always available and willing to help.
All our excursions are accompanied by CES leaders known as ‘Yellow Shirts'
(because of their clearly identifiable polo shirts) and these leaders have been very carefully trained in dealing with young people. They are selected for their warm manner and sense of responsibility.
