These are programs organized in the summer months for students aged 9-18, where English education and activities are intertwined. In the US summer schools, where classes are usually held for half a day, social and sports activities are organized in the other part of the day, accompanied by guidance teachers, while visiting historical and touristic places and surrounding cities. Young people participating in the summer school program can often find the opportunity to practice their English outside of the classroom. They mingle and form friendships with their peers who have come from different countries for the same purpose. Summer schools in America offer comfortable dormitories. Students have counselors who can be reached 24 hours a day if needed. Students, who are met at the airport by a school staff and transported to their accommodation, are closely observed during social activities and excursions.
