A similar communication style is reflected in the educational environment.

Summer programs in the USA for foreign students are organized on the basis of prestigious educational institutions - private boarding schools, colleges, universities, so the courses will give a unique opportunity to get acquainted with the academic environment of the legendary American universities.

TOP-5 universities with summer programs for international students:

For a successful studying of language courses, an initial, basic level of language is recommended. Classes are playful in nature, joint activity becomes a universal language of communication. Most programs last from one to two weeks to several months. Foreign students get decent knowledge and effective preparation from 2 weeks in language camps.

The educational institutions presented on SMAPSE website have passed the necessary accreditation. Associations of US camps set high safety requirements - the quality of food, water, the requirements for the teaching staff, the quality and safety of sports and educational infrastructure, emergency precautionary measures and much more.

Summer schools offer a wide range of recreational activities: water sports, dancing, creativity, team play, professional sports, fashion, design, theater.

Educational institutions offer several options to choose from, so the cost of living may vary slightly. If we talk about rest for students in summer camps, the most common type of accommodation is school residences, which have all the conditions for a comfortable stay: students are completely immersed in the language environment, live with peers from different countries, are completely absorbed in the learning process, program of events. Schools take full responsibility for the safe quality stay of foreign students. All this affects the cost of training, but is worth the money.

Another option is living in a host environment: here the student finds himself in a natural language environment, will be able to practice English in everyday life.

Students over 18 years old often prefer self-selection of accommodation - they rent apartments, so you can save a lot, but the students take care of their food completely.

English is a complex, rich, beautiful language, it is impossible to learn it in a hurry, in the bustle or because "it is necessary." Simple rules will help you find an approach to effective studying:

  • Law of interest
  • Learn the language like children
  • Become the main teacher for yourself
  • Track your progress, get inspired!

Psychologists recommend not spending time compelling a student to study - it is better to create an environment that will be interesting to him. Language programs abroad is an excellent option!

Every person is able to learn a language from birth, and young children who master their own, and then a foreign language, are a perfect example. At the same time, kids do not delve into the rules of grammar, but simply memorize words and form them into sentences. Collect sentences like constructor blocks, while not paying much attention to grammatical inaccuracies.

In order for the language not to be abandoned, it is important to be able to properly organize the educational process, not to pin all hopes on the teacher.

It is important to understand that it is almost impossible to learn a language. So that one day you do not attack the spleen, set mini-goals, upon reaching which you can track the result. This will definitely give you strength for new achievements.
