Course Description

At Bucksmore Summer, students have 20 hours a week of formal English lessons. Academic lessons include general English classes, group projects, and conversation. Classes are small to provide personalized attention, with a maximum of 11 students.

An assessment at the end of the course will provide an accurate evaluation of what the students learned in the program.
