The King’s-Edgehill ESL programme is an exciting and challenging way to learn English through a wide variety of classroom activities, local excursions and trips to other Canadian provinces while experiencing life in Atlantic Canada.
New international students also benefit from attending the annual English as a Second Language Summer Camp. This camp is a wonderful opportunity for international students who are studying at King’s-Edgehill School for the first time to improve English, make friends and have fun as they adjust to a new culture and become familiar with King’s-Edgehill School. The camp includes daily English classes as well as a large variety of cultural activities, day trips and sports. The ESL Summer Camp begins in mid-August and runs until the start of the regular academic year.
In class, students will develop conversational skills and improve pronunciation by participating in class and group discussions. They will practise writing sentences, paragraphs and essays in order to improve their written expression. The classes also focus on improving students’ grammar and vocabulary through a wide range of lessons and assignments. The classes are divided into beginner, intermediate and advanced levels and there is a 1: 10 teacher to student ratio.
