There is always something fun to do in Denver, and at BridgeEnglish we help our students take advantage of everything the city has to offer. Here’s a sampling of activities students can sign up for this summer at Bridge to practice their English outside of class, make new friends, and get to know the beautiful “Mile High City.”
Denver is known worldwide for its microbreweries and you can expand your English vocab into new terrain by taking a tour inside one! You’ll see how beer is made— all the way from hops and yeast to the cold frothy glass in your hand. At the end, you’ll even get to sample the product, fresh out of the vat.
Improve your English by watching American films! Grab your blanket or lawn chair, because at dusk in the summer months, The Historic Elitch Theatre draws crowds of movie-goers to the lawn for popular American movies from decades past. Before each show, there’s even outdoor entertainment, and food and snacks are available, too.
Pronunciation Class Workshop
If you’re looking for language practice outside class that’s a bit more structure, sign up for a workshop such as pronunciation class. These teacher-led, informal group classes are designed to give motivated students even more focus on tricky areas of English learning.
Board games are a fun and challenging way to put your English vocabulary into use. Compete with friends from class and make new ones while you play games like Scrabble, Pictionary, or Taboo. Don’t worry— we’ll teach you the rules if you’re new to the game! Depending on the night, there might even be more hands-on games offered, like Ping-Pong (table tennis).
Colorado Rockies Game
Here in Denver, sports are big— I mean big. To truly experience Denver, you can feel the fever of a Rockies baseball game at Coors Field, in the heart of downtown’s trendy Lodo neighborhood. Eat classic American ballpark snacks like hotdogs or pretzels and after the game walk to one of the many nearby bars to toast the win (we hope!) and join in the electric energy of game day.
