Online Summer School
English for Academic Purposes

English for Academic Purposes Summer School 

The English for Academic Purposes Summer School is an exclusively designed online course for students aged between 12-17, ideal for those who wish to experience Akademeia’s first class teaching standards for the first time and help prepare themselves for a rewarding academic career.

The carefully devised syllabus has two overriding priorities:

  • To provide students with a genuine taste of what it’s like to study at Akademeia; we achieve this by focusing productive content on key academic skills.
  • To address the most common language and structural mistakes our students’ make upon entry to the Summer School, in order to enable participants to excel in their future studies.

Key elements of the English language, such as perfect and passive tenses, the appropriate use of articles and correct punctuation are each worked on in dedicated, focused sessions. These will provide students with the foundations necessary to successfully complete many of the same academic assignments required of our term-time students, such as essay writing and analysing texts for language and effect.

By taking this course, students will receive 22.5 hours of contact time with Akademeia faculty members and be provided with a wide range of reading and language materials to continue their studies independently.
