Why You Should Spend Your Summer Immersed in an ESL Program in the US


Spending summer at a university campus or college town offers a glimpse of some of the calmer aspects of American student life. Without the chaos and crowds typical of the school-year, a summer program allows you to really get to know your peers, explore campus, and focus on your English studies. As most schools offer summer sessions (ESL as well as regular academics), you’ll still be in the swing of things, but in a more intimate, relaxed environment.

Plus, a North American summer offers endless opportunities to enjoy the weather. How does this sound - picnics in the grass, weekends at the beach, bonfires, evening strolls, summer festivals of all kinds, and lots of barbecues and lemonade? Pretty good, right?
