By living with an American host family and attending CISL’s Standard English Program at CISL’s Downtown San Diego location, San Diego English camp students experience full U.S. cultural immersion.  After a morning of English instruction, San Diego teen homestay students take full advantage of CISL activities (such as laser tag, trips to the San Diego Zoo, beach days, surfing, indoor rock climbing, and biking) then come home to a meal provided by the host family. Breakfast is also provided for students every day.
