Course Description

This program is specifically suited to young learners aged 12-15 years old and combines English lessons with a range of activities and excursions. Students can enjoy their time in a different country while learning new language skills and experiencing the Cairns tropical lifestyle.



YouSTUDY’s English for Young Learners Program is tailored to the needs and developmental stages of children in their early years of education.  Recognising that children have distinct learning styles and preferences, English for Young Learners engages strategies that make the process enjoyable, interactive, and age-appropriate.

English for Young Learners materials are carefully curated to introduce simple vocabulary and sentence structures that align with the developmental stage of the learners.  The goal is to build a solid foundation for future language development while ensuring that the content remains accessible and relatable to young minds.
