Immersion is one of the best ways to learn English quickly. And, with the help of the right international ESL program, your child could do just that – and discover a new culture, make friends from all over the world, and build new confidence, all at the same time!
How do top international language programs in Canada pack so many benefits into just a few weeks of study? Read on to find out!
1. Top International Language Programs Provide a Rigorous ESL Curriculum
The best international programs implement the latest best practices in ESL teaching, and regularly measure your child’s progress. Instructors provide extra help (or an extra challenge!) when and where it is needed most, so your child gets the most out of the language program.
Top ESL camps will provide a pre-assessment when your child arrives and a post-assessment when your child completes their program. Each day will offer several hours of focused English language study and practice, with plenty of creative and social activities so kids can apply and strengthen their language skills at all times.
2. Experienced, Credentialed Teachers Set Leading International Programs Apart
An ESL program is only as good as its instructors. That’s why world-class language programs only hire experienced and highly credentialed world-class instructors.
As a top international language program, Destination Canada’s instructors are all university graduates. They’re also certified classroom teachers, and all teach at Canadian schools during the academic year.
It’s important to select a language program run by experts – teachers who are capable of supporting each student, and guiding their progress toward English language proficiency.
3. Opportunities to Discover Canadian Culture While Your Child Studies English
Part of what makes studying in another country such a rewarding experience is the opportunity to explore a brand new culture. As students practice their English at Destination Canada, for example, they’ll learn all about Canadian history and traditions.
They’ll even get to visit Canadian historical sites such as Ottawa’s Parliament Buildings, and Upper Canada Village – one of Canada’s best preserved heritage sites!
4. Fun and Creative Activities Help Support the English Learning Process
When kids and teens love learning, they are far more likely to engage in class work and remember new material. That’s why the best international language schools balance class time with fun activities.
At Destination Canada, for example, students complete 25 hours of class time – or five hours of English instruction a day – every week. Outside of class, students enjoy a wide variety of on-campus sports and activities, including:
- Arts & Crafts
- American Football
- Ultimate Frisbee
And that’s on top of fun activities off campus like go-karting, laser tag, mini golf, and museum visits!
These are great opportunities to make new friends from around the world, practice English skills, build leadership skills, and truly enjoy the summer camp experience.
5. A Top International Language Program Ensures Your Child’s Safety
In addition to providing an excellent English education and an unforgettable experience, you want to know that at all times, your child is safe and supervised while they study English in Canada.
Canada is one of the safest countries on the planet. Even so, top language schools make sure that children are carefully monitored to ensure their safety.
Destination Canada’s facilities are located right on the Carleton University campus, which comes with 24 hour per day campus security. On top of that, all summer camp residences are fully supervised by experienced program staff.
Students are provided with a comfortable, safe environment in which to work hard, have fun, and fully enjoy the learning experience.
