ELS Language Classes

The ELS language classes help students develop their speaking and conversational English skills in and out of the classroom. Different from more intensive programs, which focus heavily on grammar, these sessions focus on ways to engage the students in an active use of English.  Using sports as the common theme, professional ELS instructors use video and rich media sources to generate natural conversation, and to encourage this practice outside the classroom with their new American teammates, coaches and staff.  Offered daily the two 50 minute classes enable each student to fully engage in a full day of sprots while practicing their English and grammar in a non-threatening environment. Campers are evaluated at the first class. Classes are formed/grouped based on speaking proficiency and age.  Program is appropriate for beginner, and intermediate levels. Classes offered Monday – Friday immediately following lunch. See sample schedule below.
