Do you have plans this summer?! Why not spend 3 weeks in the most popular summer vacation land in the United States, and improve your English skills at the same time? You will immerse deeply into the local Maine culture, hike Mt. Borestone, spend a day in Acadia National Park—the second most-visited national park in the U.S, enjoy Sunday morning church service with American families, visit top colleges in Boston, and attend a half-day day leadership workshop provided by Harvard-Stanford graduate Dr. Liz Kwo.
The three week home-based program is for students ages 10-14, or who are entering grades 6-8, who want to improve their English pronunciation, writing, vocabulary, reading comprehension and communication skills while learning about the American culture.
The program is designed to increase a student’s reading ability, vocabulary, pronunciation, as well as writing skills. The program of instruction uses popular children’s literature that provide students with a sense of American culture through story lines.
By reading and discussing the stories with their teachers and other students, GSC’s summer camp students will not only acquire useful vocabularies and improved comprehension skills, but also a boost confidence to use and to communicate in the English language.
Students will also visit John Bapst Memorial High School the #1 Private High School in Northeast US as ranked by the Washington Post. This will give students the experience of a US classroom and the same instructional methods used by American teachers.
