Embassy Summer School in Boston is an excellent opportunity for students 12 - 17 years to improve command of English, to get acquainted with American educational environment. The school's programs in June-August offer provide comprehensive preparation, including academic and sightseeing blocks.
Dean-college is located an hour's drive from Boston. It is a large campus with educational buildings and residences, developed sports infrastructure and a variety of green areas. Here all conditions for a comfortable stay are created.
Embassy Summer offers courses that provide deep and relevant knowledge, after which it is possible to maintain a conversation with a native speaker.
It does not attach any formal value to formal evaluations, and the only criterion for success is an adequate perception of the language . The number of listeners in the group (usually 15 people) should be considered optimal: on the one hand, the teacher should not be torn between a multitude of people (a situation common to a regular school), on the other - the "students" do not have a feeling like a student suddenly called to the blackboard.
Before the beginning of training, a short blitz test is conducted, and according to its results, the distribution is carried out into groups, and the initial level can be either mediocre (Beginner) or very good (Advanced).[999.7 ] The adopted training scheme assumes that the listeners have 15 free hours per week, evenly distributed for 4 days. At the same time, all the necessary methodological materials are issued directly at the school, and the classrooms are equipped with all necessary equipment (video projectors, high-quality headphones, specialized computers, acoustics).
At one time it could be called a circle of interests, though somewhat peculiar. Within the framework of the club numerous lectures are held and interesting moments related to this or that historical person are discussed. And in some cases, listeners are given a unique opportunity to take part in cognitive excursions related to the topics discussed the day before.
If you are confident in your abilities, Embassy Summer offers you the opportunity to independently evaluate the available knowledge. Such a test is somewhat like a confession and is conducted strictly one-on-one, and the result will be an assessment fully consistent with the generally accepted standard of CEFR (the Common European Frame of Reference). The only thing that should be taken care of in advance is to inform about their intentions during online booking, and this possibility is retained only until May 30.
Cost: $ 1270 per week (with accommodation in the residence, the "Standard" class).
