The 2019 edition of the ASV Summer Program has finished. Our coordination team is happy to see how more than 600 children have participated and enjoyed an activity promoting language learning, creativity, curiosity, and openness to other values.
The Summer Program is based on the ASV teaching methods and places special emphasis on oral communication, collaborative learning and the use of language in different contexts. Class routines and workbooks are adapted to each age but all of the students take art workshops, outdoor activities, swimming sessions and off-campus trips. Elementary and Secondary groups prepared presentations for their families on this past Wednesday during the Celebration of Learning Day, while children in Preschool classes offered a lovely music festival on Thursday.
As usual, this Summer Program had a large number of local students coming to ASV to improve in English, but it is also significant the increase of international families visiting Valencia in July and choosing our program as a summer activity for their children. Thank you!
