Young Learner Academy, a success for 2017!

Last summer TIS welcomed over 200 students to their Young Learner Academy, with 13 different nationalities represented. The Junior course also saw a large influx of bookings, with students as young as 6 attending with their parents. So, as this was their first full year of offering the Young Learner Academy, TIS carried out extensive client research, and here are some of the results!

Amongst the top scorers are the homestay hosts, receiving an exceptional overall score of 5.5 out of 6, to show just how friendly and welcoming they are.

Not far behind are the English Lessons, reaching a very respectable score of 5.3 out of 6. This reflects how enjoyable the classes are, how much the students learn about the places they visit and how much they feel like their English has improved

Some highlights of the Social Programme included Quaywest Water Park, Kents Cavern and the Boat party, with Exeter city being the top destination to visit. Over 30 activities were listed as favourites!

So not a bad start to the Young Learner Academy programme, with lots of ideas and developments 2018 is looking even bigger and better!

Finally, when asked if they would recommend TIS to a friend, 97% of all the students say they would!
