The overall goal of the English Language Learning program is to help campers improve their confidence and proficiency in English. The language skills the children develop on camp will help to bring them up to speed with their international peers and properly prepare them for their studies. The benefits of English Language Learning span far beyond the classroom: campers will be able to open more doors, make new relationships and ultimately make the world feel like a much smaller place!
This program is run by Stamford American International School's top class EAL teachers. Their team is comprised of highly qualified staff, certified to teach English Language Learners in an environment with low teacher/child ratios not to exceed 1 teacher to 12 campers. Children will have access to intensive instruction at their appropriate grade level resulting in effective progression.
