Learning by speaking: English on the farm

It’s all fun at this farm: at the language camp in Mettmann, we get to discover the organic farm Gut Halfeshof together and learn English – surrounded by plenty of four-legged friends.

Improving English skills at Mettmann language camp with Berlitz

Our holiday camp in Mettmann combines English lessons in the mornings with a varied leisure program in the afternoons. During lessons, the focus is on creativity: for example, kids will write content for our camp magazine, draw and describe their own pictures, or act out fairy tales in English. That way, we teach kids to enjoy the foreign language through play.

Learning English during the school break? That’s not a problem with our Berlitz English camps! Unlike school lessons, the aim here is not to teach as much material and grammar as possible. We use the Berlitz method of "learning by speaking", i.e. as much active speaking as possible. We offer kids:

  • Lessons five mornings a week (4 x 45 minutes each)
  • Kids are encouraged to actively use English in small groups.

On the day of arrival, we’ll assign kids to learning groups according to their age and previous knowledge.

Learning can be fun: fun and action at the Mettmann holiday camp

At Mettmann language camp, our motto is "learning by doing". After the morning language classes, we continue speaking in the foreign language. 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 Mettmann holiday camp in the afternoons. Here’s an example of activities, depending on the location and season:

  • On a guided tour, we can feed and pet all the big and small four-legged friends on the organic farm.
  • If they want, kids can even take care of the ponies.

  • Those who like sports can let off steam by playing volleyball or soccer.
  • Big and small artists alike can make clothes or friendship bracelets.
  • Visiting the nearby Neanderthal museum.

Good to know: The program is created and adapted individually and on site for each date and can therefore vary.

Gut Halfeshof, Diepensiepen 20, 40822 Mettmann

Learning and fun at Gut Halfeshof

Gut Halfeshof is a hands-on farm where kids can make apple juice, carve pumpkins and grow vegetables depending on the season. There are so many things to do here – for example, in the straw barn: here kids can swing, build a cozy cave or have a straw fight.

Another highlight are the four-legged residents at Gut Halfeshof, including piglets, sheep, ponies and horses. After a day full of action, girls and boys hit the hay separately in cozy shared rooms.

Beautiful location in Neanderland

The Halfeshof is located between Düsseldorf and Wuppertal and is easily accessible from the Ruhr area and the Rhineland. The farm, located amid forests, fields and meadows, is the perfect place to relax. The Neandertal Nature Reserve is nearby. The picturesque valley has been world-famous ever since researchers found the fossilized bones of a previously unknown prehistoric man there in 1856: the Neanderthal man.

Additional information

"Let’s speak English" – that’s the motto we follow at the Mettmann Berlitz Camp. Our experienced counselors are at the kids’ side all day long. Both during lessons that take place in small groups in the mornings and during the fun and action in the afternoons and evenings. Our focus: to ensure all kids speak English all day long.

The best proof of the success of our Berlitz concept: many counselors were camp participants themselves in the past and support us year after year!

Providing the best all-round support at our Berlitz language camps is important to us. That also includes a balanced diet. Kids in our Day Camps will receive a common lunch and drinks like juice, tea, or water.

We try our best to offer alternatives for kids with special requests, such as vegetarians or those with allergies. Please contact our team before booking so that we can discuss this on a one-on-one basis.

How we start: Camp starts on the first day at the time mentioned in the travel information (sent to all participants before camp start). Together with their parents, kids will be able to get to know our team and other participants and take part in a parents' welcome session. All kids will receive our welcome package, which consists of a gym bag, lunch box, T-shirt, and much more. We use a written and oral placement to place kids in the right learning group. With younger kids, we often just talk briefly about their hobbies and everyday life.

Important departure information: Parents can pick up their kids on the day of departure. You will find out exactly when in the camp travel documents. Unfortunately, it is not possible to pick kids up at a later time, as our team will also be leaving. We will send all camp documents, including a certificate of participation, to the participants afterwards.

Then take a look at our kids camp FAQ page where we have gathered further information.

We will also send you further details regarding the pack list, arrival and departure etc. by e-mail after your booking.
