IH Belfast is located in the University Quarter of the city, close to the city centre, Queens University and the beautiful Botanic Gardens. There are many great sites to see within a short distance of the campus. Our Young Learner programme provides the opportunity to learn about the history and culture of Belfast and see the main visitor attractions, such as The Titanic Experience, Ulster Folk and Transport Museum, W5 Interactive Science Museum, Belfast Castle and Cave Hill. Available to students aged 12 to 17.
Classes follow a communicative approach, focusing on authentic language that students can use outside the classroom. Each week is theme-based to ensure consistency and continuity and to give students the opportunity to see new language in context. Themes (for example, ‘You and the Environment’, ‘Social Networking’, ‘We Are All Scientists’) are selected to appeal to the students’ interests and to provide engaging classes that increase motivation. Each week culminates in student presentations based on that week’s theme.
