Shanghai Awaits

Summer Camps: 

Shanghai awaits the arrival of the Blue Team and the Blue Team awaits the arrival of the students from Beijing and Shanghai. Just think, people from opposites sides of the world coming together to get to know about each other and to learn to converse in English more fluently and effectively.

Don't forget your smile, swimsuits, shoes, sandals, shirts, shorts, suntan lotion, towels, toiletries, tissues, tennis shoes, and table manners :). Bring lots of energy, excitement, and enthusiasm.
