I need help with activities for an immersion course
 
Hi there!!

It īs been a long time since I last posted on the forum. As most of us here, I love teching English and I love exploring new methods and activities, it keeps me motivated.

This time, I īm organizing an immersion course in English and I īm preparing the activities. The course is aimed for pre-intermediate to advanced students.

I wanted to ask you to help me with ideas, it īs the first time I do something like this and I want it to be a success!

Any suggestions???

Thanks in advance.

I īve never taught an immersion course myself so no practical advice from me personally:(
But as a lifetime learner and as a former interpreter, I can assure you immersion into an English-speaking environment will be extremely beneficial for your ss. It would be great if you could have a native teacher as well.
Here īs an interesting article I īve found http://www.teachingenglish.org.uk/articles/simulated-immersion

Thanks for your reply! 

The articles are very interesting, the tips are useful. I also think it īs a great opportunity for students to learn English in a completely different way. 

I īll consider the idea of having a native teacher, although there are not many visitors in my town :(

Can you ask for a volunteer from Peace Corps? Do you know if they are allowed in your country? Actually, I think that would be the best option, I mean to have a Peace Corps volunteer assist you with your immersion course.
Last year we had a summer drama camp for about 12 days for our middle school ss and we had 4 American volunteers and each group of ss was assigned 1 volunteer to work with. It was extremely beneficial for them.
