Program Description: The American Experience is a summer program for European and international students, ages 14-18, who wish to come to the United States for English language immersion as well as to learn about American culture. The program takes students to Boston and New York, as well as on regional day trips.

This English immersion program in the USA combines two advantages: a pre-college experience where our students live with a group of peers, and a language immersion experience facilitated by the Abbey Road faculty. Students should have at least one year of English.
