Serious Summer Fun

Introducing Our....
New Challenging Course Programme for Juniors for 2015
Over the 15+ years we have been offering Junior Summer Programmes, we have noticed a steady improvement in the English language level of our young leaners each year. In response to this and feedback from our students and agents, the experienced team at IH Dublin have developed its own new course progamme for juniors called
'Serius Summer Fun' which will take place at our centres in Dublin & Cork.
Key Features of the Programme
  • Focus is to make classes as enganging, authentic, challenging & interactive as possible.

  • Factors which have influenced the content: future employment prospects, need for challenge, generating motivation, 'take home value' & responding to students' learning styles.

  • Real life tasks such video lessons, excursion lessons, project & collaboration work, CLIL content, self-assesment & e-portfolios.

  • IH e-Portfolios:
    Each student will create their own web based e-portfolio during the course where they will upload their best work & work they are proud of that they would like to keep for the future or share with their friends and parents back home. For example, students might upload and article they have written for the 'Serius Summer Fun' blog or newsletter, a cartoon story they have created, a test result they are proud of or material they have found useful and would like to use in the future. The e-portfolio can also be accessed by the students' parents which helps involve them in their son/daughter's stay in Ireland.
