In July, it’s winter break in Brazil but it’s summer time in the US! Summer in the United States means baseball games, theme parks, and fireworks lakeside for the US Independence Day, July 4th. Sending your child to experience summer in the US is great way to give your son or daughter a taste of US culture, a chance to learn English and to check out a boarding school prior to considering full time study. Many US boarding schools offer one- to four-week programs in the summer, incorporating English language training, trips around the US, and various arts and sports programs.
