The region’s first ever English summer camp aimed at building writing skills in students is taking place on the Island of Murter this summer.
“Teaching English over the years, I’ve noticed that students who have been educated in Central Europe particularly struggle with expressing themselves in writing. They don’t know how to start writing, they have trouble structuring their texts, and they are generally afraid of the whole process because of how little attention is paid to it in schools. My goal is to bring American-style writing classes to students in Croatia and build strong and confident writers with developed critical thinking skills,” explains English and Writing Teacher Jelena Primorac, who will be teaching the writing classes in English at the camp.
While students will be spending the mornings strengthening their writing skills in English, the afternoons will be dedicated to outdoor adventures—the teens will be hiking, biking and kayaking with professional guides from Jamming Adventures, exploring the island of Murter and its surrounding waters.
