We find that the best way to learn is through carrying out projects. You will sit a placement test at the start of camp to determine the class that will help you improve the most, in small-sized groups from beginner to advanced. Language lessons are designed for students who are learning the chosen language. So if you are a native English- or French-speaker, it’s best to choose another subject.
A varied programme designed to help you apply your knowledge to a wide range of topics and themes, communicate better with your new international friends or refine your creative writing skills.
Native speaking teachers with a passion for their language and literature will help you develop your language skills with clarity and confidence. An ideal opportunity to explore new learning themes while at the same time improving your grammar and vocabulary.
Our Maths lessons are taught through fun, varied and interactive lessons. Great for getting ahead for the coming school year! Lessons are offered in English.
Our pedagogical model
Our teachers plan their lessons according to project-based methodologies, whether in the English, French or Maths classes.
Throughout the camp, students work as a class, or in smaller teams, in small groups or as a class to finalise themed projects which are presented at the End of Camp Ceremony. These presentations can range from videos to podcasts, products, demonstrations or activities. During past summers, students have made homemade toothpaste, their own cheese, map reading challenges, city guides, a news show, stop motion videos, story-telling and written their own poems.
The benefit of learning through projects is that students apply their new subject knowledge in a practical and fun way. The result is engaging with the study material using all senses and ways of learning (listening, talking, reading, writing, sharing). This model also allows different subjects to work on a common project, such as Maths and French, which often leads to interesting results.
