Languages at Camp Suisse

At Camp Suisse we offer a complete foreign language program in English, French, German and Spanish.

Our qualified teaching team is experienced and trained to teach languages in inspirational and diverse environments. The Camp Suisse method of teaching, based on communication, confidence building and fun ensures campers learn quickly and enjoy their language experience.

Language classes

Languages at Camp SuisseWe adopt the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages as a basis for our language programs and therefore our courses range from levels Beginner to C1. A camper’s level in their chosen language is determined through a variety of carefully planned, informal, written and oral tests conducted on the first morning of camp. Classes are usually no bigger than 11 students. The small number of students in a class allows the teacher to create a close relationship with each student, thus enabling the teacher to identify the students’ strengths and weaknesses in the language.

The language program

DSC_5200Our standard language programs include 15 hours per two-week session or 9 hours per one-week session of foreign language tuition.
For those looking for a more intensive language experience, private tuition as well as additional language workshops are available focusing on GCSE, IGCSE, A Level and IB curricula. Contact us for more details.
At the end of each camp session students are presented with an Award Certificate showing their level of language in relation to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.
