Young Learners (12 – 17)

International House Belfast has been running young learner programmes since 2008. The chance to learn a new language is one of the greatest gifts any child can be given. An English course for young learners with International House Belfast provides a safe and fun environment to develop language skills, and create a lifelong love of learning in all of our pupils.

We now have two centres, both with amazing facilities but each offering a very different experience to suit a variety of needs. Both programmes use different teaching methodologies.

All of our English courses are taught by experienced and dedicated teachers. We understand that, in order to develop a love for languages, learning must be fun for children. All of our courses for young learners combine teaching with hands-on activities, games and exercises to keep children engaged and interested.

Our Adventure Ireland (SHARE) programme is an immersion course with native speakers. Students learn new skills and practise their language skills with local students. The SHARE Centre is an activity centre located on the shores of Lough Erne, in County Fermanagh. This isn’t just an English course. It’s also a chance to meet new friends, gain new skills, and make memories which will last a lifetime.

Our Young Learners at Campbell College in Belfast offers a fantastic programme of sports, excursions and local visits. Campbell College is one of Northern Ireland’s oldest and most prestigious schools. This programme also gives students the chance to learn about local sports, culture and life in Northern Ireland, while experiencing the college’s beautiful setting. Students also take part in day trips throughout the course.

Both centres offer residential accommodation, food, and an exciting programme of activities for learners of all abilities. Both courses include safe and convenient transfers between to airports in Belfast and Dublin.
