Our Berlitz language camp in Ratingen

Learning French and having an adventure in one, is that possible? Oui, bien sûr! Exciting holidays await at our language camp in Ratingen. And at the same time, the children and teens practice the foreign language.

Language classes

Language classes take place in the mornings five days a week: the language is practiced with the experienced supervisors in 4 x 45-minute units. Learning takes place in small groups with similar language and age levels and, of course, with a lot of fun and motivation.

In the afternoons and evenings, we provide a varied program. The same applies here: speak French – the language trip to Ratingen is conducted exclusively in the foreign language!

Leisure program with fun and action

The activities at our language camp in Ratingen include, for example, sport ball and team games, delicious barbecues or fun events. There is something for every taste:

Fun and action in the afternoon

At the Ratingen holiday camp, kids can make the most of everything on hand and try out a whole bunch of exciting activities. Whether it’s a gymnastics class or a volleyball game, making jewelry or designing T-shirts: this is how we make vacations 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:

  • Sports, fun, and games, such as basketball or soccer,
  • Exciting team challenges and quizzes,
  • Doing crafts or learning all about makeup,
  • Shooting videos and finding out about social media together, or
  • Learning songs in the foreign language.

Fun and action even after sunset

In the evening, kids can also enjoy great new experiences and play with friends new and old. 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,
  • Hosting fun quizzes and music contests,
  • Organizing camp parties, or
  • Game nights and story reading.

Note: Actual activities offered may vary depending on weather and availability.
