Overview

Throughout the Teen Summer Explorers program, the students will improve their English skills, and become familiarised with techniques for taking the IELTS test and other international exams. They will also have the opportunity to develop a range of skills that will help them prepare for university.

Students will develop their fluency and improve their pronunciation to become more confident in communicating and expressing their ideas in English and become more accustomed to tasks found in international exams.

Throughout the summer course, students will learn speaking strategies and practice through activities and presentations that will familiarise them with tasks they may encounter in university.

Students will complete a research-based personality test and participate in activities to analyse their inner strengths. Based on these personality test results, a 1-on-1 consultation with professional career advisors is provided to parents to assist their children with career planning (applied for Ha Noi and Ho Chi Minh campus).

Summer is the opportunity for students to expand their skillset in addition to their regular classes. Throughout the summer course, students will learn about research and critical thinking skills, personal goal setting. Developing these skills will help them prepare for study, work, and life.

Through a schedule combining a wide range of both academic and leisure activities, students will learn interesting new skills and knowledge, but without too much academic pressure. Furthermore, excursions and team-building activities will provide opportunities for students to connect with each other, to build team spirit and to create lots of great memories together.
