The minimum duration for a language course is usually two weeks, but students benefit the most starting from the 3rd and 4th weeks of their language course, after they get used to the new environment. By this time, the early distractions are over and the student has "settled in". The average student takes about 12 weeks of language studies abroad.
Access to Language Studies offers 2, 3, 4, 5-week programs. Our creative and innovative
curriculum blossoms in a small classroom environment. The communicative interaction
combined with the learning opportunities outside the classroom is extremely effective.
Involvement with extracurricular activities and events during our camp can often be as
meaningful and significant as the content learned within the classroom. We feel that our
planned events, trips, and social gatherings, along with a great classroom curriculum will
deliver the ideal learning experience.
The program focuses on a rich and balanced curriculum that draws connections between
language, culture, and current events therefore supporting all dimensions of language
learning and teaching. Communicative Language Teaching and Task-based learning
activities offer plenty opportunities for language use and the linguistic content of the courses
is rich, diverse, and motivating.
