 Here’s an Intensive English language holiday camp for teens and young learners who speak English as a foreign language — and it’s lots of fun, too!

English Language Summer Study Camp at British Council focuses on boosting oral confidence, increasing communication skills, and improving English grammar and vocabulary in students (aged 4 to 17) from all the over the world who speak English as a foreign language. How exactly do teachers engage the kids in an age-appropriate way? Through interactive games and fun activities, plus a carefully designed programme of wide-ranging topics and exciting project work. There are 11 weeks of camp to choose from with new afternoon sessions in addition to weekly morning sessions too. Here’s what’s on offer for your kids this summer…

English Language classes for kindergarten-aged students (specially designed for non-readers and writers) involve arts & crafts, games and music.

Summer study camp for kids 4-6 years old:

These classes are specially designed for non-readers and writers. Young learners can look forward to arts and crafts, games and competitions, and songs and music. Topics range from Eating (do you like broccoli?) to parts of the body and dinosaurs. Kids will be building cardboard box houses, and making animal masks and musical instruments. Lessons are hands-on fun with English vocab woven into each activity so learning is seamless. Plus the teacher-to-student ratio is excellent: with both a teacher and a class assistant present, there’s one adult to every six children.

Summer study camp for Primary and Secondary students:

To engage older kids British Council Summer Camp use a mixture of games, projects, drama and communicative activities (like working in small teams). Topics range from Fascinating History where students will prepare a research project about a historical event to Advertising where persuasive techniques (and the accompanying vocabulary) will be studied in order to make their own advert to be presented to their classmates. These summer camps offer students a huge advantage in improving English grammar and vocabulary as well as increasing general knowledge and boosting overall confidence.

New afternoon sessions at Summer Study Camp will be jam-packed with fun activities like team games and crafts.

WE BELIEVE WORKING PARENTS MAKE GREAT PARENTS. A 2015 Harvard Business School study of girls with working moms in 24 countries across the globe found that they grew up to have more successful careers themselves. And another HBS study found in 2018 that kids with two working parents grew up to be *just* as happy as kids with a stay-at-home parent. In short: if working makes you happy, mama, do it! And let go of the #momguilt, because a happy and fulfilled mama = happy kids. Of course, having the flexibility to work near your kids - and for them to see you on the job - has benefits for everybody; whether you're nursing your baby or telling each other about your mornings, we're grateful for a family-friendly co-working space like @trehausco. - Kate McFarlane, Senior Editor⠀

WE BELIEVE IN TEACHING TEAMWORK. Our world and our future are highly unpredictable. Technology is advancing so rapidly that we don't know what our world will look like in ten years let alone 20 years. Our children will also face dramatic environmental and political changes. So how do we prepare them for such an unpredictable future? #Teamwork. Learning to work as part of a team helps develop many social skills such as communication, empathy, patience, tolerance and collaboration. These are the skills that our children will need more than any others. - Emilie De Cannart, Managing Director, Sassy Media Group⠀
