TEACHING AND LESSONS
At Embassy Summer, we have designed our English courses so that students get the most out of the classroom and outside of the classroom, with special emphasis on communication skills to improve their listening and speaking abilities.
Our friendly, qualified and experienced teachers use technology and computers at some of our centers to enhance teaching, making lessons interesting and fun.
Classroom activities include role-playing, pairwork, group work, and projects. Students will also learn about their trips and excursions in the classroom, and during these they will have the opportunity to participate in challenges to maximize their learning and progress.
Students take an English test on the first day of classes to ensure they are placed at the appropriate level.
- Sports such as football, mini olympics, rounds, table tennis, volleyball and basketball
- Drama and performance events such as scavenger hunts and drama workshops
