English & Activities for Juniors at New Horizon College of English (NHCE)

Napier, New Zealand

Course Description

We will have a programme of English and Activities, just for younger students between 14 and 17 years old.  We run three programmes a year.  The first is in January, the second in April, and the third in July.  Students can study extra weeks of General English before and after their Activities course, or do any number of Activity weeks within the course dates.

The programme has English lessons every morning from 9am to 12 noon.  The students join in classes with other international students from the General English programme.  In the afternoons they take part in an Activity Programme.  The excursions may commence at 1pm or 3pm.  If the excursion starts at 3pm, the students study English class from 1pm to 3pm.  Additional excursions at the weekend will cost extra (e.g. day trip to Taupo, bushwalk, Farmers’ Market etc).
