When studying a foreign language, the younger, the better. Explo English is a fun filled 3-week residential summer program for early English language learners ages 10-15 located just minutes outside of Boston.

True fluency happens when students understand both language and culture. At Explo, they will learn both. Be safe. Be creative. And learn lots and lots of English. Explo is world renowned for making learning interesting, fun, and hands on. We work year round on designing engaging and innovative curriculum. Learning English at Explo is not about workbooks, or lectures, or language labs. It???s about learning by doing.

Past English language learners have taken painting classes, though they were really English classes in disguise. Others have solved crimes via CSI simulations while learning English. Still others have learned English by working as city planners building new cities. Young people love doing and making things and Explo English classes are all about doing and making.

Explo English takes place on the same campus as our Explo 360 program so that Explo English students will have the opportunity to spend time with American students and other fluent English speakers. Our goal for Explo English students is to get them speaking English and participating in the greater Explo community, which is comprised primarily of native English speakers.
