ESL Program Introduction

American Language Adventure is an intensive full English Conversation immersion program, which travels throughout a region of the USA. The program has been developed to maximize learning by totally immersing students into the English language. This course is designed for students who love to travel and who want to improve their English conversation ability. Students come from all parts of the world and therefore must speak English to communicate.

ALA provides an environment for conversation to flow freely. Students attend morning classes and then practice conversation throughout the day on activities and excursions. Evenings are a time to tell stories around the campfire. The schools’ pedagogy is to use groupwork. Learning a new language has been proven to be more effective when using a groupwork method. A unique feature of American Language Adventure is its mobility. Seven tents serve as dormitory, kitchen, and classroom facilities making the entire school mobile. The school is then free to move from city to city and see much more of America than a school that is grounded by thick walls. The school provides all of the camping equipment and the students require no knowledge of camping. Americans love camping and this is an excellent opportunity to experience American culture first hand.
