English Language Summer Camp: Harvard

Our English language summer camp in Boston is designed to help international students improve their English language proficiency. Students enrolled in the English language camp experience Harvard University, the most prestigious American college campus.

International students attend a two-week or four-week academic English language program. They learn and practice English in a traditional classroom, gain practical experience during workshops at Google, Microsoft, MIT, and live in dorms right in Harvard Square, Cambridge, USA.
