So long….farewell….until next year!!

This year EC Cambridge Junior Programme  helped over six hundred Young Learners improve their English language skills and, hopefully, gave them all a summer they will never forget! We hope you enjoyed your time here and we would love to see every one of you back next year. Until then, it’s a big thank you to all the people who helped make it a FANTASTIC summer. Dont forget to join the summer 2009 Facebook group. http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=109357957528#/group.php?gid=109357957528

Avant Garbage: part deux!

Friday evening was the second Avant Garbage – Trash Fashion show of the summer. As usual, it went down a storm! We had a variety of grand, exquisite, tasteful (and some tasteless) designs; all designed by our own budding Alexander McQueens-in-waiting! After the show, there was a very cool farewell disco. As expected, it was a very sad affair – with lots of tears. But hope to see you all next year!

EC Casino Royale

“The name’s Bond…James Bond” was the theme for this week’s farewell evening. Unfortunately we said goodbye to lots of young learners, however before we did that, everyone had a chance to win (or lose) some money on the casino tables! The dice were rolling and the cards were being shuffled…we had blackjack, poker, roulette plus many more games. After the Casino, there was a farewell disco – giving everyone the chance to show off their disco-dancing abilities!

Team-building Monday

From crossing deadly alligator-infested rivers to engineering high-quality suspension bridges, this Monday played host to a variety of team-building events throughout the evening. Challenge 1: teams of ten young learners had to cross the dangerous ‘river’ in order to get to safety. This required team work and lateral thinking on getting the students across the river in the safest and most efficient way. Challenge 2: the young learners had to devise a robust, yet simple, bridge that would support an object. Needless to say we had a variety of different contraptions.
