English for the Next Generation - Sample Video for Review
Here’s a sample ENG Video.  These videos help our students review the vocabulary and language patterns they’ve learned in class.  Students watch the videos at home, where parents can help them practice their English. A little practice every day helps students internalize these language patterns.  In ENG, we say that the students “own” the patterns.  Sometimes, the students don’t even realize that they know the words and phrases - but they recognize them when they hear them, and they pop into their heads when they’re speaking English with our interns. When the students have mastered a certain set of sentence patterns and vocabulary, a set that allows them to have casual conversation in a natural way, they have achieved what we call “Finite Fluency.”

A Camp Song From USA Summer Camp
This is a video of a camp song.  During orientation, each Summer Camp team creates and choreographs a camp song that they will sing throughout the summer at every camp. Each team teaches its camp song to its campers, and the ACs and campers sing it together often - at meals, at break times, in the shower.... This one was just finished - it’s a first practice session. There may be a few kinks to be worked out, but you get the idea!
