 Message: Learning a new language is always a challenging process that requires hard work and motivation for everyone. But it doesn’t have to be boring! In EIC, children get to meet camp leaders from different countries, make new friends and practice their English communication skills through fun and interesting activities. Through our camp, we hope to nurture self-confidence, empathy and respect for cultural diversity in children, which are all important qualities for their future growth.






 Full name: Pham Hai Nam


 Nickname: Nam


 Country: Vietnam


 Message: I began studying English when I was in my first year of junior high school. More than 10 years of studying English was a long journey. I came across a lot of challenges while mastering the language. I didn’t give up because I love the opportunities that English brought to me. My ability to use English opened my eyes to a world of diversity, a world in which people are increasingly connected. Through the English Immersion Camp, I want our children to understand what it feels to live in a multicultural world with understanding and compassion.

 Message: The world became what it is today because of man-made rules. If “man” (lawmakers, politicians, businessmen, teachers, parents, etc.) can make and change the rules, so can we! Let’s change and make the world a greater place to work, play and live in together peacefully. WE CAN DO IT!!!

 Nickname: Nguyen


 Full name: Nguyen Vu Thao Nguyen


 Country: Vietnam 


 Message: I started studying English because I really like Disney cartoons and I wanted to be able to watch them even without subtitles. That small goal has kept me continuing my English learning journey for the past 15 years.

What about you? What is your purpose of learning English? Would you like to try reading English books or watching English movies? How about we trying to talk about that in English?

At EIC, you can take on many challenges with English so, don’t be afraid and let’s join us!
