  • What is this Summer School about?

    Our Semi-Intensive Summer School is primarily aimed at students who need an F-1 visa for the USA. It provides our students with the opportunity to learn English, make new friends from all over the world and have the summer of a lifetime, in one of the most interesting cities in Florida. They will study English in the mornings and one afternoon per week, then enjoy a range of full-day and half day excursions and on-site activities* during the day and in the evenings.

    This is a perfect summer school for young learners who want to improve their English faster than usual but, at the same time, enjoy their summer, make new friends and explore new places.
