Want to learn English fast? Enrol in the BISP Summer Programme!

Prospective students all over the world are taking flight in droves in search of summer

programmes that will both enrich their studies and teach them a new language. As English

becomes a common tongue across the globe, applications are being sent overseas to

English-speaking countries where students can reside at summer programmes that immerse

their students in the language and Western culture.


Study abroad to learn English! Enrol your child in the British International Summer Programme

now for diverse course offerings, a unique travel opportunity, fast English education, and

valuable skills for their future! Global students ages 14 or older are welcome!


Tailor your education with a wide range of course offerings


The British International Programme (BISP) offers just that. As one of the United Kingdom’s

leading institutions, students have the opportunity to choose their academic path and build their

confidence in the English language. Over the course of the summer camp, students can take

courses across any subject areas of interest. By choosing their curriculum, students can explore

their passions, hone their skills, and learn subject-specific English vocabulary in their chosen

fields.


Students are able to choose courses across subject areas to help them explore what they enjoy.

These learning experiences will provide academic enrichment and support English language

learning. For example, if a student is interested in studying medicine, they can take courses that

will enhance their knowledge in the medical sciences, as well as learn specific English

vocabulary within the medical field.


Benefits of travel for teens


BISP offers a unique residential experience in which teenage students will have the opportunity

to enhance their independence, take responsibility for their education, increase their self-esteem

and become more globally well-rounded.


Travel promotes necessary social lessons for teens: acceptance, curiosity, collaboration, and

cultural understanding. International students from diverse backgrounds and cultures will

collaborate both in and out of the classroom. Not only will BISP prepare students for working

with diverse populations, but it will also foster friendships and cultural awareness.


Teens will also be able to build life skills in their travels abroad. Residential summer programs

allow teens to structure their routines independently and learn to manage their daily

responsibilities effectively


This study abroad summer camp is designed to make learning fun. Beyond the classroom,

students will attend educational trips, take part in camp-wide activities, and have the opportunity

to get involved in camp sports teams. By traveling to the UK, students will have the opportunity

to tour historic sites, explore British culture, and include themselves in way-of-life as they assert

their independence.


How immersion leads to fluency—fast!


What’s the best way to learn a language? The best way to learn English is to study abroad.

Learning a new language is not easy. Studies have shown that the best way to become fluent in

a new language is through complete immersion. Surrounding ourselves with the desired

language holds us accountable for learning new words and common phrases. Immersion forces

our brains to absorb vocabulary and speech patterns by necessity, volume, and frequency.


Study-abroad programmes (like BISP) and bilingual studies have been reported to produce

higher levels of language fluency than any other method of language learning (Cummins 2009).

By attending the British International Summer Programme, students will reside in the United

Kingdom making speaking, listening, reading, and writing in English accessible through real-life

situations. This is why the UK is one of the best English-speaking countries to study abroad.


Using a new language in natural conversation also builds confidence in speaking. Immersion

speeds up this process. A major reason why many people fail at becoming fluent in a new

language is that they are too afraid or embarrassed to speak it out loud. Fears include sounding

silly, mispronouncing words, having an accent, not knowing a certain vocabulary term, and

saying the wrong words. This has been termed “language anxiety” (Tanveer 2007).


BISP shortens the language anxiety phase through community and immersion. Language

anxiety is natural but is minimized at BISP through a friendly group of learners and teachers

who are dedicated to building student confidence. The programme is made up of caring

educators and small class sizes of students who are all new to English speaking.


Why learning English is necessary for success


Set your child apart. Set them up for success by opening doors for exclusive career

opportunities. Speaking multiple languages has become one of the most valuable skills for

career success all over the world. With the rise of remote work (work from home/work from

anywhere) and career travel options, students at BISP have a premier opportunity to learn a

language that increases their career pathway possibilities innumerably.


English has become a global language. More importantly, it has become the professional

language of the world. It has become the language of business—the language of success.

Cambridge English completed a comprehensive study in which top businesses from around the

world reported that employees who speak little to no English are a barrier, and the only way to overcome this is to exclusively recruit staff who have English speaking skills; that their work

language is English (Cambridge English).


On the other hand, the United States, one of the leading countries in international business,

values bilingual employers over those who only speak English. Whether your child works

remotely from their home country or travels to the U.S. for work, their candidacy will be

prioritized and paid higher salaries over English-only speakers, due to their ability to reach more

clients. New American Economy conducted research that found that recently, over a span of five

years, U.S. job postings that preferred bilingual applicants almost tripled (New American

Economy 2017).

a once-in-a-lifetime chance to: learn a new language, travel to a new place, experience a new

culture, study subjects of interest, and make new friends from around the world! Prepare your
