Language camp in Dresden: fun and action in English
Picturesque vineyards, charming half-timbered houses – all of that right outside a big city: at our language camp in Radebeul near Dresden, we get to learn English in beautiful surroundings and have a lot of fun together. When we’re not organizing sports tournaments or playing fun team games at the hostel, we’re discovering Dresden together. One thing is certain: there’s no such thing as boredom here.
Learning English in Dresden according to the Berlitz method
The core focus of our Berlitz method is to use the foreign language as much as possible. We do this primarily through play: for example, by having the kids create a camp diary, play language games, or work on projects.
At our Dresden language camp, we aim to give kids the confidence and self-assurance they need to speak English in a group setting. Therefore, we make sure that the learning groups are assigned according to age and ability level. Friendships often develop this way, and many kids can’t wait to see their new friends again at another camp the following year.
At our Dresden language camp, everything revolves around the foreign language. We’ll be speaking as much English as possible - both during lessons and the leisure program. Kids can expect the following:
- "Learning by speaking" in small groups with a qualified counselor,
- 4 x 45-minute classes five camp days a week.
Excitement, fun, and action: unforgettable experiences at Dresden language camp
Language lessons are done for the day, but the learning is far from over: our afternoons at the Dresden holiday camp are colorful and exciting. And along the way, kids will continue to practice the foreign language in a fun way. Our camp director can also speak German, for example when it comes to giving safety or other important instructions.
Fun and action in the afternoon
A volleyball game, making jewelry or designing T-shirts: this is how we make vacations at the language camp Dresden super fun! What exactly do we do? It depends on the weather and the time of year. But there’s always plenty of fun and action. For example, the program could include:
- Scavenger hunt or sightseeing in Dresden
Visiting the well-known Semper Opera, and tour of the opera in English
Visit TimeRide Dresden: A journey back to 1719, where a ride in the golden carriage awaits and you can experience Baroque Dresden live - thanks to augmented and virtual reality.
- Discover Moritzburg Zoo: Where is the lynx hiding, who will be the first to spot the wild horses? In the large reserve, more than 30 different native animal species await visitors.
- Sports, fun, and games, such as basketball or soccer, exciting team challenges and quizzes.
Fun and action even after sunset
If it’s nice out, we’ll have a campfire. Otherwise, we’ll chill inside and maybe watch a movie. Here is a sample of our program, depending on the location and season:
- Barbecuing, baking campfire bread, and toasting marshmallows,
- Organizing camp parties, or
- Game nights and story reading.
The activities mentioned here are examples and may vary depending on dates, availability and group.
Welcome to Dresden: this is where we’ll be staying
Jugendherberge Dresden-Radebeul, Weintraubenstraße 12, 01445 Radebeul
Well equipped: the youth hostel in Radebeul
Rain or shine: at the Dresden-Radebeul youth hostel we can let off steam on the soccer field when it’s nice out or have exciting table tennis duels indoors. The terrace and lawn are the perfect place to relax. When it rains, there’s the in-house bowling alley, as well as a comfortable reading room or board games. Girls and boys will be accommodated separately in shared rooms.
Radebeul: the Saxon Nice
Radebeul is a feel-good place – that’s what King John of Saxony thought. More than 160 years ago, he described Radebeul as the Saxon Nice. The reason: its fantastic location among historic vineyards, charming townscape and mild climate. The writer Karl May also felt at home here: he wrote his famous stories about Winnetou in Radebeul.
By the way: our accommodation is on the outskirts of Dresden and the S-Bahn stops right in front of the house – a perfect starting point for exciting city tours in the Saxon city.
