How many times have we heard that "we all have to learn English to get rich" and the truth is that this phrase always makes sense. Nowadays, English has become the universal language, without really being so, for our global culture and society, being very important to have a good linguistic level when interacting with all the other countries in the world. If you have planned an English summer camp for your children, nothing better than preparing them during the year so that they get used to this language.
But how can we achieve it? The answer to this question is very simple: reading. Whether it's just reading online articles on interesting topics or better yet, reading books written by English-speaking authors. This will help us greatly improve our vocabulary as well as verbal skills and phraseology in the language. It will also provide us with an important and beneficial source of inspiration for future references.
