Once again this summer, ELI’s large network of international representatives and educational partners will send hundreds of students from Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, China, France, Italy, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Russia, Spain, Taiwan, Turkey, Venezuela and Vietnam to study in our academic and cultural immersion program. Students will have the opportunity to increase their English Language proficiency in an engaging content based curriculum. Topics will include: Health and technology, cross cultural communication, globalization, government, foreign policy, international issues, mind/brain, civil rights, law, and legal systems. Classes will emphasize critical thinking and problem solving while incorporating blended on line learning. To enhance the classroom experience and learn about US history, students will participate in excursions throughout Boston and surrounding areas. The aim of the program is to foster international relationships in an effort to promote understanding and appreciation of different cultures.
