Visits to Access summer camps in Uzbekistan

This past July, English Language Fellow Andrew Howard visited three summer camps for Access students in Uzbekistan. The students, who are usually from low-income families, receive scholarships from US embassies to attend these programs. The intensive two-week camps focus on language lessons, recreational activities, and personal development.

Howard led lessons on Independence Day, the basics of baseball and its role in American life, and song-writing. The students also learned how to use jump-rope rhymes to practice sentence stress. These interactive lessons combined education and physical activity to provide the students a fun outlet for speaking English. Most of the students had never spoken with a native English speaker, so it was a good opportunity for them to practice their conversational skills.
