The Global Student Study Tours have specifically been created for international students whose goal is to attend American universities. Tours will spend time on English language skills, school visits and sightseeing. The focus is to expose international students to the educational and cultural environment in the California.
The Summer Academic program is designed for the student who wants to improve their language skills while enjoying the beauty of California. While on the high school campus, a portion of the time will be spent with the tour group improving their language skills. We will cover all aspects of grammar from beginner to advanced levels, through lecture and practice. Classes will also cover vocabulary acquisition and topic discussion. Students will also have the opportunity to work on their reading and writing skills.
The second half to the day will be spent shadowing their student guides. The student guides are actual students of the high school that will take them to a few their classes so they can experience classes in action and what a typical day is like. They will be able eat lunch with the students and ask any question that are important to them.
The ultimate goal of the program is assisting students to find the right university for them. We will tour world famous universities such as UCLA and USC along with other prestigious colleges in the area. Students will have the opportunity to speak with school officials that will explain the benefits of their respective universities and what it takes to be accepted.
During these tours we will discuss the differences between community colleges, public universities and private universities. Each type of university offers their own benefits.
We will also visit many of the sights that make California a worldwide destination such as:
Disneyland California is most certainly a land of enchantment where children and the young at heart find that dreams really do come true. It is simply known as the Happiest Place on Earth!
Universal Studios offers a mix of real Hollywood moviemaking mixed with incredible attractions. Students will pass real soundstages with movies and shows that are in production. They also experience an earthquake, flash flood, and more through impressive effects and theme park trickery.
We will stroll Hollywood Boulevard, see the Grumman’s Chinese Theater, see the Hollywood sign and visit the Farmer’s Market.
California beach are rated among the best beaches in the world. They are perfect combination of beauty and activities. Some beaches are known for their boardwalk, other for their surfing and still other for camping. But they all enjoy California weather!
We will have Study Tours during the summer and winter. Students that participate in a Study Tour will have priority enrollment for the Bridge Program.
