FURTHER INFORMATION about the English Language Camp

  • The English Language Camp is based on the methods we use at AISB to help our students acquire English. AISB is an English-language school and therefore English is essential.
     
  • The AISB English Language Camp is a three-week program with varied levels. Our program is custom designed to meet the needs of each group.
    Students are required to attend all three weeks. We build skills step by step, which is why the participation in all three weeks is critical.
     
  • The morning is devoted to active, dynamic English instruction. The afternoon is dedicated to using English for all communication in sports, games, arts, and dance.
     
  • Our teachers are multilingual and use modern approaches to teaching. These approaches enable students to learn and function in an English-language environment.
    Students speak, read, write, and listen to English. The instruction is designed to enhance all of these abilities.
     
  • Students use technology to enhance their learning.  Students may make documents, videos, blogs, and podcasts to become familiar with the information technology we use at AISB.
    Students may also make presentations, engage in debates, create slideshows, and use technology to support their understanding and language.
    More advanced classes emphasize writing and academic speaking.
     
  • The afternoon puts English into action. After a delicious lunch, students join in the afternoon activities of our summer camp program.
    All of our activities are run by teachers, AISB teacher assistants, and university students or students in the last year of high school.
    The great majority of our staff works at AISB or has studied there. Our school has a special spirit, which we pass on.
    Participation in sports, games, swimming, art, and music is not only fun, but also helps develop a child’s language, social ability, and brain development.
     
  • At the end of the three-week course, students will receive a special Certificate of Participation from the AISB English Language Camp.
     
  • The English Language Camp gives students from AISB extra help in developing their academic English.  The program is also an excellent introduction to the school for students new to AISB.
    The program also helps students who attend an English language school or a bilingual school.  
    Finally, this course can help any student who wants to further develop academic English language skills. English is now the most important language in the world for science, technology, academics, travel, and business.
    The AISB English Language Camp helps to make students stronger and more confident in their English. For beginners, this is an exciting, fun introduction to English with lots of chances to use the language every day.
     
  • We will supply all books and materials necessary for the course. Students are required to bring a laptop or tablet. Technology is an important part of the program.
