TIPPS Summer '17 Introduction to Academic English

This summer we are excited to offer TIPPS Summer English Course (Introduction to Academic English). Taught by native English speakers, this three-week course is designed for incoming 8th, 9th, and 10th graders who want to improve their academic English over the summer holiday.

Each day will consist of lessons in Reading, Writing, and Vocabulary, and each week will be built around a theme. In the first week, “Learn Something Every Day,” students will learn how to conduct research, write reports, and give presentations.  In the second week, “Discover Your Gifts,” students will learn how to analyze persuasive arguments in nonfiction texts and will write their own persuasive essays.  In the third week, “Embrace New Possibilities,” students will read and analyze a variety of short stories, while also creating their own. In addition, students will read a popular novel and study relevant vocabulary throughout the entire three-week course.

Our Summer English Course will consist of group activities, individual work, presentations from local professionals, videos, and music. This action-packed course is great for students who want to improve their academic English skills before beginning the fall semester. Students will develop their language skills, learning to utilize them more effectively in speech, writing, and reading.

You will find a sample weekly schedule below. Please contact TIPPS Student Affairs for more information about TIPPS Summer English Course!
