    Summer Programme

    TIS’s summer program explores various themes in English. Children will explore diversely about the theme that has been set up. In each theme, an essential question (Core Question) has been set, and children are looking for answers to the question while being guided by a teacher, and in the process of expressing, children have the power to express their own thinking skills, expressiveness, others I will acquire the necessary power to be active in the global era, such as feelings to embrace and to challenge.
    Also, all the lessons will be in English. Even if you do not understand English at all at the beginning, children will steadily acquire English skills and global skills by the power of “exploratory curriculum” that draws out the curiosity of children.
    In this summer school, we will work on two themes, “Travel (Travel & Tourism)” and “Games & Toys” (Game and Toy). “Travel (Travel & Tourism)” explores everything related to travel and sightseeing, including transportation facilities, hotels, famous sights of the world’s countries. Let’s make a travel brochure by everyone!
    “Games & Toys” explores the world’s play, games, popular sports. After learning the country’s culture and history, let’s actually play!

Parent comments

  • The summer school seemed to be a great experience for my child. He seemed to have matured a level or two when he came home.
  • I can’t provide an experience as valuable as this, so I am really grateful.
  • It’s been two weeks since he came back, but he still happily tells me about his memories and what he learned at summer school and about his friends.
  • The children grew stronger, much more than I expected. It almost brought tears to my eyes.
  • I asked my child, “How was it?” He said “It was really fun” and he wants to go back every year.
