Featuring intensive, structured instruction in and out of the classroom, Summer Semester helps students wishing to improve their English proficiency through a combination of English immersion, classroom study and experiential learning. Boys and girls choose from four levels of ESL instruction: beginning, intermediate, advanced and transition (a bridge course to mainstream English). Faculty devote the entire school day to English instruction in a variety of contexts. Classes seek to develop vocabulary, reading comprehension, oral and written communicational skills, and subject-specific terminology. Experiential education takes the form of afternoon excursions, lectures and student interviews of local citizens.
