Language camp in Lindau: learning English at Lake Constance
Learn English in a fun, playful way and have an unforgettable time: at the language camp in Lindau, we experience plenty of water action and fun on one of Germany’s most beautiful lakes. While we’re having fun and enjoying some major action together, we’ll be speaking in English – add to that a view of the shimmering Lake Constance and the majestic Alps for even more fun.
Learning English in Lindau 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 Lindau 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.
At our Lindau 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.
Learning can be fun: fun and action at the Lindau holiday camp
At Lindau language camp, our motto is "learning by doing". After the morning language classes, we continue speaking in the foreign language. Together, we get to do a whole bunch of great activities: scavenger hunts, excursions, and exciting team challenges. Our program is versatile and fun. We only use German for safety instructions or in emergency situations.
Afternoons are filled with lots of action, no matter the weather
Whether it’s sunny, windy or rainy: there’s always something going on at the Lindau holiday camp in the afternoons: those who like sports can let off steam by playing volleyball or soccer. Big and small artists alike can make clothes or friendship bracelets. Here’s an example of activities, depending on the location and season:
- Windsurfing or SUP: If possible, we organize a two-hour windsurfing taster course and cover the first meters above the water with board and sail. Also with the SUP paddling along the shore is excellent.
- Bicycle trip: For example, we first ride along the bike path in the direction of Austria, on the right the view of the lake and the Alps behind it, then on the way back a detour in the ice cream parlor in Lindau.
- Walk along the lake or bathing in the lake.
- Playing sports, for example ball games or table tennis,
Evenings together round the campfire or indoors
After a day packed full of fun and action, we make ourselves comfortable. Firstly, we eat dinner together, then we warm up round the campfire, have a quiz night, or a camp party – depending on the mood and the weather. Evening activities may include:
- Toasting marshmallows and baking campfire bread over the campfire,
- Hosting music competitions and game nights,
- Spending free time with friends new and old.
The activities mentioned here are examples and may vary depending on dates, availability and group.
