OUR PROJECTS

Summer Program

Summer Camp is the first project of ANEA. In 2014, a team of 5 people went to a village in Gansu, China to teach over 50 elementary school kids English. While the villagers enjoy decent lives, the majority lack proper English resources. Since then, our team has made the decision to create an annual tuition-free 3 week summer camp for kids who desire to learn English and use English as a tool to build their futures.

The first year, we had 5 teachers teaching 2 grades. The second year, our team expanded to 9 teachers teaching 3 different grades, with math added as an extracurricular class.  The third year we expanded to 4 grades, with more than 100 students. In 2017, the fourth summer, our team expanded to 19 people teaching 6 different grades and over 180 students.

 

Continuing on, we strive to expand this project and provide English education to more people around the world, benefiting more and more kids through our projects.

Online Teaching

As our summer program rapidly develops, we recognize the need for kids to have constant lessons on English throughout the normal school year. However, most of our teachers lived in other areas of the world. So how can we teach the kids when our bodies are thousands of miles away? As the response, we developed the Online Teaching Program.

  • Lessons are taught over the internet using apps such as Skype, LINE, and Oovoo.

  • Hardware required: Internet, computer(s), and at least one camera.

 

In a three-month period of the 2017-2018 school year, we have conducted interactive teaching with close to 300 elementary and middle school students in the Hualien area, resulting in more than 300 hours of lessons.
