What is ISEC?

What is ISEC?

ISEC stands for Intercollegiate Summer English Camps. We run summer camps all over China, teaching English to students of all ages and abilities.

What’s in store?

  • You and your team will spend your summer leading several English camps around China
  • You will make strong friendships as you live in close community with your US-UK team
  • You will build meaningful relationships with your students and Chinese teaching assistants
  • You will attend orientation and debriefing events to equip you for the beginning and end of the program
  • Chinese teaching assistants will help you with classroom activities and provide you with cultural and language advice

Program Overview

COST: FREE! You cover the costs of getting to China: flights, visa, and health insurance. The programme intends to cover all of the cost of transportation, food and accommodation within China. However, a small contribution towards these costs may be required – if so, ISECers will be informed in advance at the earliest opportunity.

DATES: ISEC starts the first week in July and finishes the second week in August.  Please see the schedule for more this year’s start and end dates.
