Language Summer Camps – Skills for the Summer
As we approach the summer holidays many parents are looking for summer camp options that will give their children the opportunity to maintain interest and momentum in their studies whilst enjoying other activities. For those students who show a keen interest in languages a Language Summer Camp has a number of valuable benefits and can help them improve a variety of skills over the summer holidays.
Language summer camps, taken in the country that the language is spoken, offer the optimal way to learn a language. At a summer camp the students live, eat and sleep the language – which is great for their language development and greatly improves their fluency.
All language summer camps offer a full programme of fun activities throughout the week and weekends. With classes in the mornings and sports, social events and cultural visits in the afternoons, and day excursions at the weekends, the children have the chance to relax and enjoy themselves as well as improve their language skills.
Developing Soft Skills
In a language summer camp environment the children develop a range of skills in addition to their language skills. Making friends with children from all over the world and working in teams with members from different cultures and customs builds assertiveness, independency, negotiating skills, and self-confidence.
