Although the central focus of the Academic, Enrichment, and English Language Programs is the course work, the TASIS England Summer Programs offer much more. All students choose from elective courses, sports, and weekend travel options. Elective courses allow students to learn about a subject different from their major concentration and so have an intellectual break during the morning class time. Sports provide opportunities for physical exercise, development of skills, and practice in teamwork. Weekend travel options give students the chance to learn about and see a variety of famous sites throughout England. Through elective courses, sports, travel, and the nightly on-campus activities such as dances, movies, games, and musical and theatrical performances, the TASIS England Summer Programs offer countless opportunities for students to celebrate their talents, make friends, enjoy the company of others, learn about many different cultures, and dramatically increase their understanding of the world in which they live.
