Student testimonials


Designed by Kaplan specifically for teenagers studying in an English-speaking country, K+ Juniors is an exciting range of learning materials that will help you make rapid progress.

Thanks to small class sizes of no more than 15 students, our skilled teachers have the chance to get to know you as an individual and help you reach your goals through fun, creative class projects.

But our lessons don't end in the classroom - they take you out into the world to explore, with exciting daily activities and one all-day sight-seeing trip per week. And while you're having fun, you'll be speaking English!

Accommodation for Juniors

You'll either stay with a carefully-chosen local family in one of our homestays, or live alongside other Junior students in one of our comfortable, supervised residences.

LIving in a homestay offers you all the comforts of a real home, and the chance to practice English daily with your hosts.

Homestay students receive home-made breakfast and dinner daily. In a residence, you'll have the chance to make new friends and learn about cultures from all over the world. Meals will be provided either at the residence or at the school.

Welfare and Safeguarding

All our hosts and staff are fully vetted. Hosts ensure students get to and from classes safely.

Our residences are staffed by accommodation supervisors who live onsite and enforce curfews, and trained staff members accompany students to classes each day.

An emergency helpline is available to students and parents 24/7. For more details, you can read more about our commitment to Junior student welfare here
