ENGLISH LANGUAGE LEARNING (ELL) CAMP:
Courses are designed to provide an opportunity for concentrated instruction to students interested in gaining proficiency in English.
The emphasis is placed on an improvement in spoken English, but appropriate supplemental study is given in writing, reading, and comprehension skills. In a fun and exciting environment, participants become more confident by developing their spoken vocabulary and grammar while improving their comprehension skills as well.
Students are placed in a class at the appropriate level of 8-10 students. The classes are small enough to provide more individual attention and yet the groups are large enough to maintain a positive class spirit.
Students receive 5 hours of instruction per day. In the afternoons, various sports and activities (including art, music, and drama) will be organized as these are an integral part of the summer camp experience. On Fridays, there are planned activities, including visits to local museums and Old Montreal, the water slides, and Ottawa. The field trips provide the opportunity for students to learn about the local culture and further develop their English skills.

“Thanks to the summer course at Kells and to the extraordinary teaching skills shown by its staff, our daughter was able to strengthen her mathematical comprehension and to very significantly raise her average. Most importantly however, this program tailored to small groups allowed her to rebuild the self-confidence so often damaged by less than adequate teaching conditions. Without this support, the story could have been quite different!
