You spend four hours a day, four days a week in class learning to read and write in English!
Each week will include one full day excursion and short afternoon excursions, taking in local attractions, and meeting new people. Weekend and evening activities will be planned to help you spend time meeting new people and experiencing American Culture.

Who Should Attend These Programs?

This program is suitable for most students.

This program is open to students ages 12 to 17 years old who want to learn and improve their English skills. All levels of English proficiency are welcome. TOEFL test scores are not required. Students who have participated in our program in the past have come from Germany, Italy, Korea, China, Japan, Thailand, Taiwan, Russia, and Mali.
