ESL Summer School

Are you looking to get ahead in your studies? Join us to study English as a second language (ESL) this summer at Albert College from August 4 - 28, 2020.

Albert College has created an exciting Summer School program for young students between 12 and 18 years of age to learn English this summer. Students will be better prepared for studying in an English-speaking school with this ESL study program focused on listening, reading, writing and speaking skills, or when taking English as an academic subject in their country of origin.

Each participant receives classroom instruction by day and enjoys a variety of exciting activities in the evenings and on weekends.Learning does not have to end when summer begins. In fact, we believe the summer months present a wonderful opportunity for students and teachers to approach education from a completely different perspective.

In the Classroom

Our experienced and passionate instructors are committed to providing highly motivated students with a unique and rewarding educational experience in a relaxed, supportive environment. Classroom instruction focuses on a skill-based and thematic approach. For many English language learners, the achievement of the ESL curriculum expectations varies and requires more time and experience. 

The Albert College Summer School program is an intensive three-week course that is designed to assist English language learners to develop the English skills they need to be proficient in their everyday lives and, more specifically, the proficiency in academic English that helps them to integrate into the mainstream school program. Through the strands of reading, writing, listening/speaking, socio-cultural competence and media literacy, the instruction will better prepare students for further study in Canada or for taking English as an academic subject in their home country.   

Small class sizes allow highly individualized instruction and active student participation. Every student works toward a working knowledge of the course material as well as effective teamwork skills. The vibrant residential program with daily physical activities and evening entertainment promotes social interaction, independence and personal responsibility in a fun atmosphere.

Field Trips

The summer program blends classroom activities and field trips. Each participant receives classroom instruction by day and a variety of evening activities. Weekend field trips are designed to be entertaining and to provide an opportunity to further improve English skills.
