US Sports Offers Nike Sport and Language Camps at University of San Diego
San Rafael, CA (PR WEB) January 29, 2013. Responding to the increasing demand by international campers for a high quality language program to add to their US-based Nike Sport Camp experience, US Sports Camps announced its partnership with the English Language Academy (ELA) to offer Nike Sport and Language programs at the University of San Diego (USD) in the summer of 2013.
“We are very excited to be able to offer a joint language and Nike Sport Camp Program at USD with ELA this summer,” says Colleen Bertiglia, Director of International Programs. ELA, who runs an intensive 14 week summer language preparation academy at USD, offers small class size, highly qualified professors with graduate degrees, and a flexible schedule start to coincide with our Nike sport programs. We wanted to develop a language partnership in the San Diego area because of its popularity as a destination for international campers. The ELA partnership gives us a seamless language option at USD that both our campers and agents have been asking for.”
The combined Nike sport and ELA camp program will be offered with both the Nike Golf and Nike Tennis programs which run at USD. These programs will start on July 7th and run through the first week of August.
Campers may elect to add a one or two week English language program offered prior to, or combined with their camp program. Students participate in half-day English classes, followed by half-day sport instruction or afternoon activities which explore the local area and attractions. “This new partnership brings together two leaders in their fields with the goal of delivering exceptional youth experiences, combining the best in English instruction and sports training for international students,” says Jennifer Preimesberger, director of the English Language Academy at USD. The English Language Academy (ELA) at the University of San Diego (USD) provides intensive English preparation courses and exceptional educational services for a tailored program of study.
