The Access intensive session

The Access intensive session  took place in the form of an American-style, multi-sensory, interactive and fun summer

Camp conducted by American university students. The five, half-day intensive assisted in the development of the students’ utilization and confidence in English, encouraged positive character traits and enhanced team building.

The daily topics built on character traits and included: honesty, perseverance, compassion, forgiveness, and responsibility. Each day the character trait was unpacked through a story and/or a modern day role model who embodied the particular character trait.

Each day began in a large group setting and included an ice breaker, songs and a video or skit.

Afterwards, the students were dismissed by teams to begin small group rotation which included; Learn It, Use It and Create It. Upon the completion of small groups, the students returned to the large group for a final review, a team challenge, songs and closing remarks.

Independence Day


On July 4th, Access students learnt about the history of America’s independence day and the different celebrations of that day and  decided  to celebrate on their own way.  The idea was to prepare a cake that contains both the American and Tunisian flags. Students were super excited about it, for it was an opportunity to celebrate the American Tunisian friendship as well. Indeed, the cake was tasty and our American guests seemed very happy about the whole idea.
