Connect English Language Institute has Halloween events planned for you!

The Halloween festivities: TWO WEEKS OF FUN FOR YOU!

If you are an international student looking for Halloween fun in San Diego, come to Connect English in the two weeks before Halloween to join our events and activities. No other English school in San Diego will offer as much fun as Connect English. Here is a list of the fun things that we invite you to attend:

Halloween Scavenger Hunt, Part 1 - Tuesday, October 19th at 12:00pm

The friendly people at Halloween World South have invited Connect English to visit their store and compete to answer questions about Halloween costumes and party supplies. How much does an Obama mask cost? What is the most popular costume for adults in 2010? Learn more at this fun event!

Halloween Scavenger Hunt, Part 2 - Wednesday, October 20th at 12:00pm

Halloween World South invites the second group of Connect English students to figure out more information about the best costumes and decorations for this year's holiday festivities. Is your costume ready yet?

Scary Movie Day! - Tuesday, October 26th at 1:30pm

Connect English will show the scary movie Halloween H20 to our students. We will serve popcorn, sodas and many other scary surprises to our students. We will also give away Halloween gifts to some lucky students who attend this fun afternoon event.

The Connect English Crazy Pumpkin Carving Competition - Wednesday, October 27th at 1:00pm

Connect English will provide the pumpkins and carving supplies. Our students will provide the smiles, laughs and creative ideas. We will give a prize for scariest pumpkin, funniest pumpkin, and most artistic pumpkin. Watch this video of Connect English TOEFL teacher Nick Sacco teaching his students to carve pumpkins.

Going the Extra Mile: Homework Club at Connect English

Connect English Language Institute is built on the idea that an affordable school can still be a great school. Students shouldn't need to choose between good prices and a good education. A good education can be affordable too!

One of our favorite services that we offer to our beginner and pre-intermediate students is the Connect English Homework Club. Most of our newest students are hungry for more opportunities to use their English skills and to be able to communicate more fluently in American society. Luckily for them, our policy is that if they want more practice, we will help them get more practice. The Connect English Homework Club is exactly what they want...and it's 100% free for Connect English students!

That's right: NO COST.

Three days a week, an instructor stays after class for Homework Club and does a simple grammar explanation for all interested and motivated students. Then the students receive a short homework assignment to practice their new grammar. The next day, students bring in their homework and review it with the grammar topic, and then the process repeats with a new grammar point.

An extra half hour of grammar work a few times per week makes a BIG difference for these motivated students. Life is much easier when you feel more confident about what present perfect means, or the difference between past simple and past progressive tenses. We use those ones every day!

You have seen the other English schools in San Diego. Why spend $1000 per month or more to go to a large corporate English school, or $350 per month to go to a school that doesn't even care about truly helping you learn? There is a language school in San Diego that is right for you. The best English school in San Diego is not downtown or in La Jolla. Connect English Language Institute in Mission Valley is right by the green line trolley, the 8 freeway, and a number of bus lines.
