Dublin Oak’s Summer Course is for boys from 9 – 14 years old. It is designed in such a way that they can make the most of their summer. It is held during the month of July. The main objective of our course is to make new friends from different nationalities, practice different sports and to learn/improve the participants’ level of English combining a very healthy environment with the opportunity to speak English 24/7.
An essential part of Dublin Oak Academy’s summer camp is to improve the ability of our participants to communicate in English in an intensive but fun way. In order to achieve this, we have planned a series of lessons, workshops, and activities that will help our campers to communicate 24 hours a day in English. It is a challenging adventure but certainly possible due to the motivation and continuous supervision of all our personnel on the campers. Our participants’ conviction is also cultivated throughout the course. The effort of listening and making oneself understood in another language at this young age shows unexpected and gratifying fruits. After a while, the English of our participants will be more natural than before with the intensive and constant care of our tutors.
The four-week course includes 56 academic sessions of 40 minutes each, 42 sessions of grammar, reading and writing skills and 14 sessions of workshops (i.e., drama, role play, etc). The participants are divided into groups depending on their level of English, which represents an opportunity to practice and improve their speaking skills.
