On July 29th, LCC closed the Summer Language Institute of 2022. 135 students from 9 different spent three weeks in a new environment learning the English language and making new friends. The students were served and taught by teachers and staff from North America and many parts of Europe.
The English Language Institute Director Gretchen Ketner shared that "This was the first 'full' SLI since the pandemic. Spending three weeks studying together, living together, and playing together helped everyone not only to improve their English communication skills but also to make new friends and create memories that will last a lifetime."
Some students also highlighted their SLI experience. A student named Israel from Mexico commented that “SLI spurred me to express myself in English more and more.” Also, Daria, a student from Ukraine, said that “studying became fun” at SLI. According to director Gretchen Ketner, "Other students agreed and added that the activities outside of class, such as clubs, dance and karaoke nights, and Tea and Games gave them many chances to try new things and meet new people. Many students are already making plans to attend SLI in 2023!"
SLI is always the summer highlight at LCC, and we're excited to offer this unforgettable experience next year!
