English Villages are a camp-based teaching environment where students participate in immersive situation-based classes (for example; Police Station, Airplane, Bank Cooking Class, etc…) to enjoy learning English in real life situations and get away from their daily school and academy schedules. Unlike academies or Hagwons, our classes are theme based, full of activities, games and crafts (NO TESTS, QUIZZES, OR BOOKS).
Students come to us for their school field trips or as part of a weekend, summer or winter camp program. Our mission is to help those students associate English with fun instead of fear. To give students a positive experience with English instead of just pressure and test scores.
