This was my first time. The best parts were when we went on excursions because it really gave us a chance to bond all together outside the college. It felt like we became a family. I would recommend the course to any of my friends looking for a summer camp! The counsellors were all so nice, the lessons were interesting where you learn a lot of new vocabulary.

    How it works?
English Level Requirement : CEFR and Language Assessment

The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages: learning, teaching, assessment, (CEFR), was created by the Council of Europe to be a language standard that describes the ability of English language learners in speaking, reading, writing and listening and measures learners’ learning outcomes at different stages.

This standard is widely recognised and used by educational institutions, enterprises and governments around the world and provides general guidance for the development of language syllabuses, curriculum and textbook design, language testing, etc.

Additionally, many internationally recognised English language tests, such as IELTS and Aptis, are associated with this standard as a reference for test score grading. In describing a language learner’s ability, in terms of speaking, reading, listening and writing, CEFR is broadly categorised into the Levels below:
