Languages at Camp Suisse

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

As an English and French speaking camp, those looking for a more intensive French language experience can enrol on our French Immersion Program (see below for more information) 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 10 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.

French Immersion Program

IMG_2889Our French immersion program focuses on rapidly improving campers’ French language skills through combining formalised language lessons, cultural experiences and real life everyday situations.
Campers undertake their normal daily routines and much of their activity program in French with our amazing team of French speaking language teachers.
In addition to the standard Camp Suisse programs, participants on the French Immersion Program undertake an extra 3 hours of language tuition per week as well as an additional French cultural excursion, usually to one of the French local markets in Evian-les-Bains or the Abondance valley.
