Summer Program: Explore America

Who said studying could not be fun? Troy University's ESL summer program mixes a wide variety of fun activities with an intensive study program that will keep you busy.

About the Summer Program

Would you like to study English by combining classroom work with outside participation in American culture? Troy University's English as a Second Language program may have just what you are looking for.

Our program offers an eight-week session of classes and computer work in Reading, Writing, Speaking, Listening, and Grammar, along with trips to Disneyworld, Chattanooga, and the white sand beaches of the Gulf Coast, as well as other trips and activities. Last summer, we sailed into the Gulf of Mexico, attended a rodeo, learned country dance steps, and had a sushi party, among other fun and exciting experiences.

While on campus, you will be a student at Troy University, with all the access to sports and cultural activities that means. You'll have access to a swimming pool, fitness center, sports fields, student center, and a full-size Barnes and Noble Bookstore with a Starbucks Coffee lounge.

You will have a chance to learn about American and local culture by seeing and experiencing it. You will visit places and see things most people only read about. At the same time, you will have the opportunity to develop your English ability in a concentrated program of study. This means you will gain both memories and skills that will last your entire life. What better way to spend your summer?
