SUMMER CAMP 2008


Summer Camp is an official English training program for children jointly organized by SEAMEO RETRAC and the College of University Extended Education from California State University, Fullerton, USA (CSUF).

This program has been implemented successfully in China before being conducted in Vietnam since 2006, which is highly appreciated in terms of usefulness and effectiveness. All experienced teachers, recruited by CSUF, are native speakers. The teachers themselves prepared the materials for each class in accordance with the children’s levels and tastes, and the children learned through games, songs, dances, and plays in an interesting and supportive atmosphere. Moreover, by utilizing advanced technology at SEAMEO RETRAC via the Internet and software, the children had abundant opportunities for practice and improvement. Continuing with the great success of this program in 2006 and 2007, Summer Camp this year was held at SEAMEO RETRAC in July with two teaching periods – the first running from July 7-18, and the second  from July 21- August 01. Upon completion of the training, Almost 200 young learners joined the training and were awarded a Certificate of Achievement by CSUF.
