KeNako is excited to be hosting its second English Summer Camp for Korean students in January 2012. The Camp will be held from 6th to 30th January 2012 and will host students aged 10 to 18 years. The month’s program includes a combination of leisure, fun, culture and top quality teaching. The Camp offers the Korean students something different to what they have historically enjoyed in countries like Australia, Malaysia and Singapore by including various life skills such as English classes, gym classes and other activities such as cooking lessons with
KeNako’s resident chef.
Many students will be travelling to South Africa to experience the delights of George and the Eden District. Students will enjoy themselves at the golf & leisure facilities of KeNako, spend a few days exploring some of the wonderful offerings of the region and also experience the sunshine and beaches of the Garden Route at a great time of year. A key aspect in persuading the Koreans to consider KeNako Academy as their choice of destination is the quality of life in George; the fact that the town is regarded as being a safe haven; and that everything is
pretty much within walking distance.
KeNako’s ability to provide a truly English experience for Korean students is well respected after just one previous Camp. Hilton and Zenny Slamet lived and worked in Korea for 10 years and both taught successfully in that country. Hilton is also the author of two books in Korea. The Koreans are very serious about their English Camps and this year’s KeNako program will see all students receiving no less than 5 hours of English tuition per day, for five days of the week. In addition, the students will receive an exciting cultural and education experience doing project work and visiting places such as Plettenberg Bay, Mossel Bay and Oudtshoorn amongst others. The KeNako English Summer Camp is aimed at fulfilling the expectations of the most demanding Korean students and parents.
The English Lessons take the form of project work, which encourages the students to use and present their ideas and findings in English. As English teaching levels advance in Korea, the Korean English students expect more from their lessons in foreign countries at such English Camps. They truly want to advance their ability to speak English. KeNako is very excited to have become an alternative destination and the academy hopes that in the coming years it will become the preferred English Camp destination!
