General English Class 
The Winter Adventures  program is centered around the General English classes. The English program emphasizes conversational skills in the classroom reinforced by staff-led workshops and field trips in Miami.
English classes are student-centered, communicative, and designed for teens by highly qualified, experienced native-speaking teachers. We hire teachers who are passionate about teaching and have unique hobbies and special areas of interest that they can share with the students.

Elective Classes
Students will not just take general English classes, but also elective classes. This class is designed to spark student interest and engage them on a topic they are passionate about. You can choose from:

1. MIAMI CULTURE

Field trips may include:
  • Little Havana 
  • Vizcaya Museum and Garden

2. AMERICAN SPORTS 
From football to surfing, sports culture is  alive and well in the United States. But who are the big names in the game? What does  it take to be famous? Why are sports and American pop culture forever linked? Answer 
these questions and more in American  Sports. 
Field trips may include:
  • South Beach Surf Lesson 
  • Professional Baseball Stadium Tour

3. FLORIDA ECOSYSTEMS
Just a short swim away from the bright  lights of South Beach lies another natural metropolis. This colorful and diverse world under the waves will be your focus as you learn about fish, sea mammals, marine ethics and current ocean technology.
