Learn About the April Summer Hybrid Program at ChungDahm

Posted on Tue, Sep 05, 2017 @ 03:25 PM

I’ve been teaching in Korea since November with ChungDahm's April Busanjin Branch in Busan.  To get a better idea of how ChungDahm operates, one the first things you should know is that there are four seasonal teaching terms: fall, winter, spring, and summer. The majority of time our teaching timetable remains stable and students are enrolled in a certain level for two terms before taking an achievement to see if they will level-up or repeat the current level. The levels for the April program in order from beginner to most advanced are: Starter, Seedbed, Seed 1, 2 , Sprout 1-3, and Sapling 1,2.  However, during the summer and winter months, the kids have breaks from their regular school classes…so it would be super distressing if they had to continue going to normal English academy classes during vacation time! Still though, to learn English or any language, one needs to be habitual in their practice. Enter: Winter and Summer Hybrid Schedules.

A Survival Guide for Summer School at ChungDahm

In the ESL world Summer school happens all over. At Chungdahm Learning we have two periods of extra classes. These happen during the Winter and Summer vacation months and they are called Summer and Winter Intensives and they are usually conducted from Weeks 9-12 of both semesters.  Currently, CDL is hosting their Summer Intensives and plenty of Korean students either switch over to morning classes or do intensives as well as regular classes. It is a time when the academy is super busy with Achievement testing and the winding down of a term. It can be rather overwhelming for teachers and staff, so it is best to be prepared in advance and have a set schedule to follow. In this blog I will go over the summer intensive curriculum along with tips on how you can make sure you are well prepared.
