Summer Junior Programme (Ages 11 to 18)

An international course for teenagers developing communicative abilities and encouraging self-expression through fun and enjoyable activities, based around music, drama, dance, imagining, games, movement, team building, environmental awareness, story circles and lots more.

We aim to learn about ourselves, how to relate to others, how to relate with our environment and how to relate to that which is beyond all of these elements. All of this happens through the medium of English.

TIMETABLE

A course at Asana is of three weeks’ duration and you should try to arrive and leave on the Saturday or Sunday immediately before and after your course.

Classes run from 9am to 1pm from Monday to Friday with a short break at 11am.  Students then have their packed lunch together on the school premises, before beginning their afernoon excursion or indoor activity, which runs from 2pm to 5pm.

On Saturdays Asana arranges a full-day excursion to a place of cultural or scenic interest from 10am to 5pm.  Sundays are free and are good days for students to spend with their host family.
