From July 31-August 14, the American Embassy in Budapest is organizing the fifth annual "Teaching Tolerance though English" summer camp in Balatonlelle for 45 students (age 11-13) and their English teachers from Hungary and six additional countries (Bulgaria, Kosovo, Lithuania, Montenegro, Romania, and Serbia).
The students and teachers are participating in a variety of athletic, theatrical, artistic and educational activities designed to promote tolerance and an appreciation of each other's cultures while enhancing their English language skills. The educational programs are facilitated by two highly-respected American educators and text-book authors, Drs. Mary Lou McCloskey and Lydia Stack.
The curriculum includes American as well as regional literature, songs, skits and games. The athletic and artistic programs are being led by Ms. Molly Staeheli, an experienced camp director from the U.S. and her nine camp counselors. After the two-week program, students will continue their joint projects via e-mail and exchange visits. The program is fully sponsored by the American Embassy in Budapest, and the U.S. Embassies in Bulgaria, Kosovo, Lithuania, Montenegro, Romania, and Serbia.
Media are invited.
