Russia | English Access Microscholarship Program | 26 Jun 2012



Summer camp was held at Gymnasium # 1, whose director provided a computer lab and English study room. The camp opened June, 10 and worked until June, 26
 
Every day English classes were held and 14 students worked in the computer laboratory,     watched English-language films, worked with excerpts for checking understanding and discussing, etc., and learned to sing both traditional and modern American songs.
 
The books used for teaching were mainly for developing speaking abilities and oral comprehension. A video course, “Family Album USA,” gave the students very valuable information about American life, customs, and traditions.
 
The students also had 24 hours of English computer instruction. The lessons were conducted in a computer class and were based on computer training programs.
 
To vary their activities, physical training classes were held: they had two baseball bats, gloves, and special baseball and badminton rackets. A Physical Education schoolteacher taught the girls to play baseball. 
 
The head of the City Educational Department sponsored two trips to the seashore for the students of the camp.
 
Three camp-wide competitions were held – “A City of My Dream,” “A Trip I Would Like to Have,” “My Mother is # 1.”  
 
The course “American Traditional songs” was very popular with the students, who sang English songs to students in other summer camps.
