Could one of you Americans please explain the summer vacation system to me. Here, our school year ends just before Xmas, during our summer. Schools get a break of about 6 weeks. The break is longer for universities, who finish in November and start again in early March. Is this how long your summer vacation is? Also, when does your school year start ie when you go back after your summer vacation are you still in the same class (grade) level at school? I have often wondered about this, having seen references to "summer vacation" on TV programs.

@junglemummy:
Well basically we go to school starting September (or August in some other states) and get out around May/June.
Everything else left is summer vacation/break.
We do get some weeks off within the school year, like a week/two weeks off for winter break (Christmas, New Years, etc.) and spring break.

Thanks meiskan. That sounds like a really good break, and I hope you and all the others on this forum are enjoying it. An added advantage is that you don't have to go to school during the hottest part of the year. Here it is still hot in February and often boiling in mid December, which makes it hard for the students who have to sit in classrooms that often have no air conditioning.

Some schools don't have heaters or air conditioning either, at least here. :x

mmmmm. i'm supposed to go to an overnight engineering program at the state uni for a month, but i really don't want to go because my group of friends that were going to go as well didn't make the grade. =| i'll still go for the college creds, of course, but still. a month.

then i'm going to brazil and korea and taiwan. brazil with my two best friends, korea with my cousin, taiwan with my mother. then it's just parties and lazing about. think' it'll be fun.
