Staying in Fort Lauderdale & Miami!

Fort Lauderdale is sometimes referred to as the “Venice of America” due to its many navigable canals. It is a city located on the southeast coast of Florida, 45 km from Miami.

We chose Fort Lauderdale because it offers a dynamic mix of urban life and relaxation by the sea, making it an ideal setting for an educational summer programme so students can enjoy the sun, beaches, culture, and outdoor activities after diligent classroom work!

Miami is a vibrant city that offers a unique combination of culture, entertainment, diversity, and a tropical lifestyle. We will be spending a couple of days there.

A hotel room with white bedding

Two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartments equipped with modern appliances, flat-screen TVs, and high-speed Wi-Fi.

A modern cafe with low lighting

There is also an on-site café; a very friendly place to relax, study, play or socialize while enjoying a great milkshake!

How will the students benefit?


Total immersion: in an environment where English is the primary language of communication. Young people gain confidence and forget that they are learning a foreign language! This total immersion is one of the most effective ways to progress toward bilingualism.


Daily practice: using English every day, routinely, to communicate with their coaches, peers, and in various situations, enhances their fluency in speaking English.


New friendships: teenagers often make friends with local or international peers during their stay in England. They are encouraged to communicate in English, which greatly contributes to increasing their self-confidence.


Discovering culture: getting to know British culture makes language learning more engaging. Young people become more interested in it as they better understand the culture that surrounds them.


Personal achievement: when they return home after the programme, teenagers realise the progress they’ve made in English, resulting in increased confidence and motivation.


Bilingualism goal: after experiencing a positive time in England, many teenagers set the goal of becoming bilingual. They understand that it’s a valuable skill that can open doors in their personal and professional lives – and most importantly, it’s achievable!


Ongoing motivation: every year, we notice that our students are more likely to continue learning English outside of school, whether through additional lessons, reading, watching films, or practicing with native speakers.

“English is, of course, our primary concern, but this programme is much more than that! It aims to develop young people’s language skills and their desire to become bilingual while considering their aspirations, education, and active participation in society.

We genuinely want to help them reach their full potential and open beautiful doors for their future!”

Laura Vandendorpe, Educational Manager
