Introduction to Camp Internet's ESL Program

 

Learning to speak, write and understand English is a challenging and rewarding skill.

Using Camp Internet you will be able to practice reading, writting and speaking, while exploring subjects of value and interest.

We will work with English in more than one form.

There is:

Business English
News English
Daily English for shopping and school
Science English

More than 1 English! That, you may say, is a bit much. But follow along through this very special ESL class and learn about the origins, the culture, the real English. When you have completed your reading, writting and speaking components of Camp Internet you will find that English has become a much more familiar friend to work with.
