Summer School

Run from Terenure College, a beautiful mansion house with its own gardens and sports facilities, the Kenilworth Junior School is specifically designed for teenagers aged 13 – 17 years.

With a combination of English language classes and fun, engaging activities, the course follows a structured programme of language study, covering the four skills of speaking, listening, reading and writing. The main emphasis is placed on developing our student’s confidence and fluency to communicate outside the classroom.

After class, our students will experience KLI’s exciting and stimulating social programme, including Irish sports, cultural experiences, and interactive activities which will encourage students to practice what they’ve learned. At KLI, we pride ourselves on creating a feeling of family. Our highly qualified and experienced teachers and staff facilitate all of the afternoon and evening activities, allowing students to feel more comfortable and at ease.

On arrival, students will take a level entry test to ensure a class placement that meets their needs. Our students’ needs will be re-assessed through regular monitoring of student progress. A certificate is presented to each student at the end of their stay to acknowledge their achievements.

Kenilworth’s Summer School welcomes students from all over the world! Our multi-national classes will encourage the students to put their English skills into practice in a fun and dynamic atmosphere.

What will students study in class?

First Class: The First class tends to be more based on book work. It focuses on developing the four main skills – Speaking, Writing, Reading and Listening.

Second Class: In the second class students get the chance to improve their confidence and enthusiasm in English through free-practice activities, games and projects.

Our Junior School classes cover all aspects of learning English but the emphasis is on improving your skills work. Recent groups have produced a magazine, a stage show and a video about their time in Ireland. During class, students learn about Irish culture – music, food, sport, dance, history etc. We link in DVD presentations with our Sports and Cultural activities in the afternoon. For example, we will show students Irish dancing or Gaelic Football and later they will do it themselves.

If any student has a problem in class, they can talk to one of their teachers, to the Student Welfare Officer or their group leaders. We will always try to help with a genuine problem.
