Intensive English (Half-Day)
This "Intensive English" program is a 2-week camp delivered by Stamford American International School's "Preparatory Course for Secondary" (PCS) team.
The main objective of the Intensive English half-day camp is to help all joiners to improve their confidence to communicate, collaborate and participate in academic English classrooms.
The course delivers English language acquisition to children of varying experience and capabilities; whether they've been learning for a while, in need of language continuity over the school holiday, or just starting out.
The language and skills learned through our 2-week program will set campers up for extended and continued success at international schools and provide them a platform to transition into mainstream classes.
The expectations, system and outlook that have found extensive success within the program, help to expand the horizons of learners both in the classroom and later in life.
We are helping to bring English learners from across the globe together through the common goals of making new friends and acquiring academic English.
*Each course is 2 weeks long (28 June to 9 July - weekdays only) and participants must join for the full course.
