The Shawnigan Lake School ELL Summer Program reflects the premier quality of Shawnigan Lake School by pursuing personal excellence through the challenges of a well-rounded education. Designed for students aged 11 to 16 years, the SLS summer program caters to students who are motivated to advance their English skills, as well as those who intend to attend secondary school or university in English speaking countries. The aim of this program is to develop and enhance skills, and therefore improve performance in English speaking, listening, reading, and writing. Instruction utilizes the patterns of the first language to help remedy some of the common English grammar errors that prevent students from fully realizing their potential. Students are also given opportunities to experience language and culture in action during our activities and outdoor education aspects of the program.
