Innovative-Theme based Workshops at English Immersion Camps

CISL Cultural Workshops are an immersion into culture in the United States, and a unique opportunity to experience life at our university locations and their surrounding cities..

Each theme is a springboard for conversation allowing students to engage in an authentic, cultural experience outside of the regular classroom setting. Workshops emphasize mainly speaking and interaction in more casual settings in order to promote spontaneous English language production. Each workshop will activate practical task-based skills outside of the classroom environment.

We have made specific changes to our cultural workshops by updating the theme topics at every location. Each program will focus on and explore a specific subject, complementing our English courses…
