CES Virtual Junior Programme 

Please note that the CES Virtual Junior Programme is closed 

until the summer of 2021. For more information please contact

For over forty years, students from all over the world have enjoyed participating in Centre of English Studies’ junior programmes. This year, with fewer students able to travel than before, the challenge for ourselves was to take that industry-leading experience and bring it to the students wherever they are. That is why we are delighted to be able to present our CES Virtual Junior Programme which is designed to ensure that no student misses out on the CES experience.

The CES Virtual Junior Programme will be delivered over Zoom and features a blend of international group classes, self-study sessions and a social and cultural programme.

CES Virtual Junior Programme

Group Classes

Class Times
Speaking, listening and collaboration

In your group classes you will look at all the key skills that go into language learning with a specific focus on speaking, listening and interaction. In addition to looking at popular issues of the day our teachers will also look at the history and culture of the countries that CES are based in. We believe that just because you can’t travel to England, Ireland or Canada it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t get to experience them!

Our mixed international classes bring together students from all over the world and these variations of perspective and experience provide our highly qualified teachers with the opportunity to create a platform for debate and discussion


Class Times
11:15-11:45 Reading and writing

The key to learning a language online is all about maximising your time. Our self-study sessions are designed to help you practice and develop your individual reading and writing skills.

In your allocated self-study time you will work on tasks that develop the topics you have studied that morning and have the opportunity to prepare for the social and cultural activities that are to come. Your tutor will be able to give you personal attention and give you work-ons and tasks that are unique to you.


Social and Cultural Programme

Class Times
12:00-13:00 Culture and communication

Culture and language have always gone hand in hand because it is the cultural and emotional background that brings language to life.

In your online culture and social programme you will have the opportunity to explore the history of our cities in England, Scotland, Ireland and Canada. Virtual tours will take you round local landmarks and our famous Yellow Shirt social team will be there to maximise your experience and provide the personal touch. You will also experience the social side of language learning with team activities taking advantage of modern technologies like Zoom, TikTok and video editing software.
