At the English Camp, all teachers are native English speakers, experienced and specialized in teaching children.
Having taken a proficiency test, students will be placed in a class with a maximum of 15 students of the same level and age. Classes will be held in the morning (9 a.m. to 12:20) and are intended to be different to those kids and teens are used to. They are fun and dynamic to promote maximum oral communication. The aim is to break down the student's shyness and get them used to speaking English so that they become more confident in themselves and in their abilities.
At the end of the course, each student will receive a certificate stating the CEFRL level they have achieved.
There are no lessons on the first Monday. Students will take a test of written and oral English in the morning to have their language levels assessed and to be assigned to their classes.

In order to put what they have learned in the morning into practice, activities and entertainment are supervised by group leaders whose native language is English and so take place entirely in English!
Students having opted for the package Classes+Activities, as well as those on full board, will have lunch on-site before starting the afternoon activities.
The program of activities is adapted to the two different age groups and structures each day to continue the immersion in an enjoyable way. As such, the big themed games, such as the famous Harry Potter or the iconic Star Wars trilogy, give kids and teens the opportunity to have fun whilst putting into practice the learning outcomes from the morning. Pool games, trips to the beach and afternoons sailing, are all opportunities to build their self-confidence. For those in full immersion on the full package, after dinner activities continue and evenings and themed parties are organized on campus.
