Students had class in Building 11, and stayed in the Green hall.
At English camp, there were 5 classes classified by grade, and each class had a native-speaking instructor and two mentors. In this camp, students made an announcement about their dream and future job, and studied about some countries like USA or UK. Besides, students took an interest in English through some English games, and diverse extraordinary activities like play.

Based by the result of the examinations, students could know about their personalized way to study. Also, students had feedback and coaching with study professionals, and made their own road map of the future, they could become more certain about their future.
After the camp, at the completion ceremony held on the 18th, many excellent students got prizes, and had gave an English speech and presentation about their future road map.Moon Gang-ho (Dept. of Mechanical Engineering), who participated in this camp as a mentor said, “I taught students about their dreams that they couldn’t learn at school. Instead of that, I learned innocence that couldn’t have been learned anywhere. I gained many things through this camp compared to the things that I taught.”
