hello everyone,
i have a nephew who is in the 3rd grade in korea. he will be visiting me during the summer, and i would like to enroll him in a summer program where he can attend ESL classes to learn english and make some new friends. it was actually his father's idea who went to college and graduate school here in new jersey back in 1980s.
i have no children so i have no idea what schools offer what. i heard/read some good things about dwight-englewood and elisabeth morrow's summer programs, and i would like to know if there are any other good programs out in new jersey.
any advice, suggestions, and information will be highly appreciated.
thank you.

Wow, it might be hard to find something like that for a 3rd grader. But the place for it would be Bergen County, because there are massive amounts of Korean people there.

I think it would be difficult to find an ESL program, not a general summer camp. The regular summer camp part will be easy.

How about calling those two schools--and I think you'd be better off with Elizabeth Morrow, because that's k-8, tell them about your little dude and that you're thinking of enrolling him for the summer, and then ask if they have a tutoring program in place where he can be taught english for an hour a day during camp.

Kids learn languages so easily at that age.

Oh, I just thought of something else--why not call one of the Korean churches in the area, ask for the children's religious education person, and see if they can recommend someplace.

Good luck!
