Life’s a Beach at LSI San Diego English Winter Camp for Kids

Monday, February 11th, 2013

LSI San Diego is proud to offer a wonderful Young Learner English camp program in January as well as during the summer months.  Students from ages 8-17 study English in the classroom during the morning and then go out into beautiful San Diego in the afternoon where they can experience beaches, year-round perfect weather and a huge variety of cultural and entertainment options.  Weekend trips to nearby Los Angeles or other nearby locations are included.

This January, 70 young learners joined us here in San Diego.  During the mornings they got to interact with students from all over the world while improving their English.  In the afternoons they enjoyed activities such as the world famous San Diego zoo, visiting FIVE different San Diego beaches, shopping at the bargain hunters’ dream, Las Americas Outlet Mall, and travelled to Disneyland, Six Flags Adventure Park, Palm Springs, and a tour of Los Angeles during the weekend.

We also love working with the wonderful agency group leaders who work so hard to make sure their students have the best experience.  Claudio and Leila, pictured above, from International Schools in Brazil spent four weeks with us this year.  It was Claudio’s fourth January returning with students!  He is definitely part of the LSI family.  We look forward to seeing both of them in 2014!

Learning English is Pretty Cool in Brighton!

Tuesday, February 5th, 2013

Despite the cold and snow last month, everyone in Brighton is enjoying life as usual!  We have welcomed a lot of new students already this year, with new friends from all around the world, and especially from South America. For many, it was their first experience of snow and there has been a lot of smiles and laughter all round.

This month, we have a big group of Moroccans coming to join us. Its their second year with us, and we are looking forward to welcoming them back. In Brighton, we feel that a good mix of nationalities really adds to the identity of the school, and love to have students from all around the world.

We recently started a new evening class at the school. It is designed for students who are already living and working in Brighton, and can’t make it to school during the day time. We are focusing on communication skills needed for the work place and for living in the UK. If you are interested, please do get in touch. There are special prices for the next few weeks, and the class will be taught by our Academic Director, Michael, who is always interested to hear from any new Brighton residents looking to improve their English.

Our Cambridge computer-based exam centre is now open for business! Any students interested in taking a Cambridge exam course can now also book the exam with us, and have the full LSI experience from beginning to end.
