Every July we offer a fabulous opportunity for your children to be immersed in English whilst having fun and enjoying the companionship of new friends in a safe and caring learning environment. Our aim is to help all children improve their mastery of the English language in all of its forms; speaking, listening, reading and writing whether they are 3 or 16 years old.
Each day is filled with numerous learning opportunities and fun activities at our Tafira site, a bucolic setting with privileged views of Bandama and surrounding hills.
At least half of the time will be spent in classrooms with qualified, native English Teachers who will help the children gain confidence and fluency in their understanding and speaking of English. Some formal grammar lessons are punctuated with dramatic role plays, quizzes and thematic topic work, all in the target language of English.
The rest of the time will be full sporting and creative activities all taught and supervised through the target language of English. This year horse-riding is included as a core activity and the children will enjoy a weekly trip to the local horse-riding centre, where the close-contact with these magnificent animals – both riding and caring for them - will no doubt be one of the highlights of each week.
Sports will include basketball, volleyball, football, badminton, table-tennis and others. Creative activities may include cooking, music and dance, clay-modelling, art and handicrafts.
This year we will also be taking the children out on at least one excursion which relates to the themes we will be covering during the course. As the learning of English is paramount, our participants will continue to enrich their knowledge of the language on our trips away from the school premises.
Students will enjoy our quality 'home-cooked' lunches, which are included in the price, in our modern dining facilities. Teachers supervise the children's lunch, encouraging them to practice their spoken English in this less formal setting. Picnic lunches will be provided for excursions.
Starting on Monday 2nd July and finishing on Friday 27th July, our summer camp runs for 4 weeks in total, from 09.00 to 15.30. You may elect to enrol for the entire course or part thereof depending on your personal plans for the holiday period. The sliding scale of prices is indicated below.
