Adventures through the Ages: An Exploration of British Literature Summer Program Join API as we travel through a land of true literary giants: the United Kingdom! Some of the greatest writers throughout history have called the UK their home, from classic writers (Chaucer and Shakespeare), to Victorian authors (the Bronte sisters and Robert Louis Stevenson) and even modern masters (J.K. Rowling). 'Adventures through the Ages' will bring their masterpieces to life: after a full tour of London, we'll visit writers' homes and see the very spots where inspiration struck, from medieval castles, to pastoral countryside, to busy cafes. We'll see where Shakespeare's plays were performed and where the Harry Potter movies were filmed. Then we'll make our way through the historic sites in Bath, Stratford-upon-Avon, Haworth, York, and finally Edinburgh and the Scottish Highlands. Along the way, we'll also take time to develop our own writing skills while taking afternoon tea, indulging in ambling afternoon walks, and eating local delicacies such as haggis.

API is working together with Colombia’s Ministry of Education (MEN) and a Colombian public institution, National Service of Learning (SENA), to provide conversational English training in job training centers and schools. English training is an important step to help locals succeed in school, find better jobs, and improve communication in the global market. Placements are available to teach conversational English in one of two ways: co-teach with a local Colombian teacher in 9-11th grade public school classrooms or at adult vocational training centers. Participants are required to teach 20-25 classroom hours and put in an additional 15-20 hours of classroom prep, grading, office hours, and staff meetings per week.
