At the Camp, students learn English through role-play, simulation, presentation, discussion and cultural performance. We encourage students to learn and practice more English, show that learning English is fun. Each day starts with prayers and preaching, morning exercises, English songs and games, followed by fun, interactive, stress-free lessons with Native Speakers from America, instructor from PEACE and local instructors.
