2 Week ESL Program

2 week Summer ESL Program to explore your artistic side.

Join us at NewSchool for an exciting two-week English program in a creative environment. Sign up today for the opportunity to expand your English language skills, connect with your peers, learn from our faculty and become inspired by the energy of San Diego’s exciting design district.


The Summer ESL program is designed to help you improve your English skills while experiencing the art, architecture, culture and fun of San Diego. Communicative English language lessons taught by experienced professionals focus on developing your language skills from the very first day. You will gain confidence through studentcentered, creative and interactive experiences and the many chances we provide to use your English both in class and out. On-campus workshops allow you to explore your artistic abilities while putting your English into action. Off-campus excursions expose you to art, architecture and culture around San Diego.


Morning Session: Communication Class: Morning classes focus on practical oral communication including listening and speaking skills. By participating in fun, interactive language activities, students start learning English that they can use right away. On cultural excursion days, a portion of morning classes build vocabulary and knowledge to help students get the most out of their afternoon activity.

Afternoon Session: Art Themed Excursions and Workshops: Afternoon sessions give students the chance to practice their English while exploring their artistic side. On-campus workshops provide students the opportunity for creativity and expression. Offcampus excursions take students on art, architecture and culture-related tours and activities while they get to know San Diego.
