On two recent excursions, students sailed on the schooner Surprise out of Camden harbor and hiked to the top of Maiden Cliff in Camden Hills State Park with its lovely views of Megunticook Lake (and a slice of the Atlantic Ocean too).
Take a look at beautiful Camden, Maine, in this video by local photographer Josh Gerritsen. The tour begins with aerial views of the harbor and surrounding mountains, and continues with beautiful shots of village streets and small shops and restaurants, both in sunlight and after dark. Camden is home to Acadia Center, and we look forward to welcoming you here during your English immersion course this summer!
The homestays with local families that are a part of the English immersion course package are often cited by Acadia Center students as one of the highlights of their time in Maine. Homestay hosts are eager to help you practice your conversational English and share in the everyday life of a small New England town.
“The house where I was during my immersion course and the family that hosted me were marvelous,” wrote Mauricio, a business executive from Colombia, after recently finishing his English course with us. “I want to thank them for their hospitality, kindness, and warmth.”
We’re excited to begin our English immersion courses in Camden, Maine, for the 2014 season!
New courses begin every Monday from May through October: mini-group classes (maximum 4 students with 1 teacher), private lessons, sharing our small-town community life, excursions, family-style meals with teachers – everything you need to improve your English rapidly.
Join us this spring, summer, or fall for a memorable learning vacation!
Acadia Center is very pleased to welcome a new, highly experienced teacher to our English immersion course faculty.
Teacher Maureen O’Keefe, who has a master’s degree in Teaching of English as a Second Language and a University of Cambridge certificate in Teaching of English as a Foreign Language, spent 23 years living and teaching overseas before coming to live in midcoast Maine in 2003. In Oman she taught at the British Council, in Sri Lanka she was a teacher trainer and teacher at an English school, and in Peru she taught language arts to Peruvian students. In her spare time she gardens, dances, plays tennis, and runs a small antique bead and jewelry business.
Camden, Maine, and its environs offer one of the most popular destinations in the USA for summer sailing, as well as for hiking, kayaking, biking, and other outdoor sports.
During Acadia Center’s summer and fall English immersion courses – offered from May through October - twice-weekly excursions led by experienced teachers give students a chance to practice their English conversation in small groups while exploring Maine’s beautiful bays and mountains.
