This was our first event in Boyolali, Central Java where we hosted our English speech contest. The contest was attended by more than 300 High School Students in Boyolali and the winner received a certificate and some cash money.
The English camp was intended to introduce and train students on how to improve their English skills through various method. We had Story Telling, Five-senses method, Job Fair and Public Speaking as tools to engage with the students.
The purpose of this particular project was to assess the English language skill of both students and teachers of Boyolali. We traveled around Boyolali city to reach out to those schools who are located on the outside of Boyolali. We used TOEFL based material to assess the students' English skill and IELTS was used to assess the English teachers.

This four days event from May 2- 5 consisted of educational program for Elementary, Junior and Senior High School students in addition to teaching English to local home stay owners and tour guides. The event was ended with a two-day Learning Academy for selected High School Students of Boyolali where we gave workshops on academic writing, public speaking and critical thinking.
