[Sponsored Report] ’15 summer camp to strengthen English abilities


ICS strives to provide the best English-learning opportunities for all students. Provided by the International Christian School

The Korea JoongAng Daily, in collaboration with the International Christian School (ICS), is proud to offer high-quality English education to national students starting July 28, through a jointly operated summer camp.

ICS School 2015 will be hosted in Daechi-dong, southern Seoul, and participants have the option of selecting a one-week or three-week course.

As an English immersion camp, all lessons will be conducted in English by native English speakers from the United States and Canada. Subjects available include reading, writing, speaking and debate.

The camp comprises three programs, depending on student preference: the ICS Regular Program, the ICS Test of English as a Foreign Language/SAT Regular Program and the ICS TOEFL/SAT After-School Special Program.

However, students can also choose to enroll in both the regular and after-school special programs, in which case a reduced rate will be offered.

The camp is open to students from lower grades as well as those in higher grades who are preparing for college admission. For high school students aspiring to attend an American university, the camp is a unique opportunity to prepare ahead.

Aside from English classes, participants will take part in supplementary activities related to math, science and history in order to gain first-hand knowledge of the educational culture and everyday environment in English-speaking countries.

To promote academic interest, students will also participate in speaking contests and field trips, which will help them develop English competency as well as a creative and proactive approach to learning.

Other events allow students to take a step away from academics. Thomas Rhee, the private executive chef for the U.S. ambassador to South Korea, has been invited to expand on his career in the culinary arts and give students the opportunity to taste his cooking.

In addition to U.S. Ambassador to South Korea Mark Lippert, Rhee has cooked for VIPs and celebrities, including former U.S. President Bill Clinton, Senator John McCain and Seoul Mayor Park Won-Soon.

The camp will help students discover personal areas of interest, encouraging them to explore cooking, music, art and physical education.
