How to teach English as a second language? Through nature of course!

Many young students who participate in a language course wish to stay longer in that country.

Here at the ESL Wilderness Ranch in the South Chilcotin Mountains in BC, Canada we offer that opportunity.
After finishing their English courses, our students can join the Comprehensive Immersion Program and stay longer at the ranch. They can remain at the ESL Wilderness Ranch as an Immersion Student after finishing their language courses for several additional weeks and months. Our Immersion students work for accommodation and meals and they can also take part in all activities the ranch offers.

This weekend our Immersion students were riding to the Pearson Lookout. That viewpoint is not far away from the ranch, it's a two hours ride for both ways. That's a good distance to go riding in the wintertime. You can enjoy the fresh air, see the blue and sunny sky and have a look over the snow covered mountains tops. The usual answer to the question of how to teach English as a second language is to use grammar drills and endless worksheets. Here, that's not our approach, we use nature, community, and wilderness!
