Students participate in a well-rounded English language study program based around activities designed to match the student’s skill level, beginning, intermediate or advanced. English language skills learned in the classroom are further explored and enhanced by participation in outside planned activities and outings. Students incorporate these outings into a final project competition, where students share their experiences with their classmates.
