MLI Academic
Programme
Here at MLI we have a dynamic approach to
‘TEENching’. Our methodology is exciting,
empowering and enjoyable.

MLI’s educational philosophy is based upon
the idea that learning in the summer course
setting should break from the normal classroom
routine and be FUN. We want our students to
learn to communicate effectively in English with
confidence and eagerness.

MLI Social
Programme
The MLI Social Programme is another
important part of the MLI course. The
activities and excursions included
complement the academic programme and
encourage the students to mix together and
continue to improve their English.

Designed with juniors and teenagers in mind, we
choose activities and excursions that will enhance
the student experience, help them learn about
and experience local culture, maximise their
English skills, but also have FUN!

There are activities running on and off-site almost
every afternoon and evening. We schedule a
range of different options so there is something for
everyone – sports, scavenger hunt, fashion show,
disco, quiz night etc – as well as local cultural
visits.
