Looking to speak English more confidently, prepare for your Cambridge or TOEFL exam, or excel in English class this upcoming school year? Jumpstart your success with this course. Take your English to the next level this summer through classroom lessons and immersion. Our fun, fast-learning approach to language education provides opportunities for instruction, with activities specially designed to increase your English vocabulary, comprehension and ability to communicate.
We meet you where you are.
Your English proficiency is assessed by a master-level instructor, after which you will expand your English vocabulary, comprehension, and communication skills based on your personal goals and expectations. Students are grouped by skill to ensure a learning level that’s perfect for you. In every lesson you’ll develop reading, writing, speaking and listening skills, aided by instant feedback on grammar and pronunciation. Whether you come from Asia, Europe or South America, you’ll leave speaking English more confidently with a standard American accent.
Your classmates will come from around the world, with about 60% from America. So, you’ll be living and taking classes with native speakers – a great opportunity to improve your conversational skills naturally through continual interaction with fluent English-speaking instructors and students.
“I have spent three summers with JKCP. Every year I think I am getting better at my English. Many of my friends have told me that my English is so much better than my first year. I am so happy that they have told me this about myself!”
