We offer residential English language summer courses in the UK for children and teenagers, from 8 - 17 year olds.
English language is just one part of a Pilgrims Young Learners course. We also focus on the personal development of your child by giving them the confidence to learn, to speak and to understand more English through activities and play. Pilgrims teachers are with your child from breakfast to bedtime teaching English in class, during meal times, activities, sports, trips and visits.

Our 3 Principles
Have lots of fun!
We know children learn more when they’re having fun and we can promise an experience our students will never forget. With fun and creativity in the classroom encouraged, active learning is not restricted to afternoon sports and evening events.
Make lots of friends
With our multi-national courses, students have the chance to make friends from all over the world. Life-long friendships are formed and students will continue their English once they have left Pilgrims when communicating with friends made on the course.
Speak lots of English
Students are always instructed to speak English at all times during their stay with us. Working in multi-national groups, students are forced to communicate in their common tongue; English!
No day is the same on a Pilgrims course, however, to give you some idea, read about a 'Typical Day' here
Here is a video testimonial from one of our participants.
The Pilgrims Course
Director at a Logistics Company
"The main thing for me is that I started to think in English and not translate. I feel confident when I speak English. What has really helped me is to realise there is nothing to be afraid of. And it is not necessary to be absolutely accurate, but just to be clear. "
The Pilgrims Course
Spain"What I got from the Pilgrims Course was more confidence and now I really believe in myself. I didn’t fix my English, I found myself. I don’t worry about mistakes, I feel good."
Pilgrims is happy to announce the launch of the Pilgrims Canterbury Blog.
