Language Immersion and American Culture

Alongside American students, ESL students combine language immersion with an experience in American culture. ACLI students study English in the classroom for five hours Monday through Friday. Program instructors, who are ESL specialists, incorporate skill-building exercises into their daily lesson plans. Students will expand their vocabulary, raise their level of reading comprehension, and improve their written compositions. Reading and writing assignments introduce students to American literature and themes in United States history. All students keep a journal of their experiences and progress within the program.

Advanced ACLI
Advanced students are given some preparation for the Test of English as a Foreign Language Examination (TOEFL) and some students may take a course in the Hun Summer School if the student demonstrates the necessary English proficiency.

Students will:
  • Live with American students and adults as part of Hun Summer School
  • Experience diversity and a wide variety of cultures
  • Work on 21st-century skills: communication and collaboration
  • Learn basic vocabulary and important phrases in “everyday English”
  • Read interesting books and materials that match their reading skill levels
  • Write short compositions about their experiences on- and off-campus
  • Practice listening and comprehension skills as well as speaking, writing, reading, and grammar skills
Boarding Students

Join us in Princeton for five weeks of classes, games, weekend trips, and fun! The daily schedule includes instruction, all meals, after class activities, free time, and evening study hall. Weekends are filled with on-campus and off-campus activities.

For residential students, The Hun School is more than academic study in the summer. It is also about finding independence and experiencing new things. The summer resident faculty fosters a strong academic environment with a clear structure, while at the same time creating a sense of home. Living and learning with others enhances personal growth and sets a firm foundation for college and beyond.

All program components are available to day students including the weekday classroom instruction, local trips, and trips to historical sites.
