Learn a new language over summer break!

Open the door to opportunity

Learning a new language is the key to a world of opportunities for kids and teens. Not only will your child be exposed to a new language, but language classes for kids with Berlitz include cultural elements that enable them to more easily understand and accept other cultures and ideas, as well as create curiosity for travel and new experiences. 

Berlitz offers summer language camps for kids in both English and Spanish. We also offer several other language classes for kids via our online, instructor-led platform. Click here to learn more about our online language classes for kids.

After completing our summer program, your child will have the skills to communicate in their new language as well as a broader cultural understanding. Our teams are ready to help open doors of opportunity for your child.

Summer language camps for kids

Berlitz hosts summer language camps for kids in several locations in the United States. Each language camp provides a unique experience for children to not only learn a new language, but to also interact with other students, enjoy fun activities and learn about new cultures.

What makes the Berlitz summer language camps different?

Our unique emphasis on conversation engages children and gets them talking from the very beginning, emphasizing authentic pronunciation and consistent participation. This encourages authentic verbal interaction throughout each session, both between students and the instructor, as well as with one another. Each lesson is interactive and full immersion, meaning that the teacher and students speak only in the target language.

Our class sizes are small groups with up to 8 students, grouped by age and skill level so that classes can be most effective. This format helps students more easily engage with each other and the instructor and rapidly see results.

Our summer language camps also feature cultural experiences that engage students outside of the classroom. Our English camps include content from National Geographic that make learning fun, while our Spanish camps feature online games and a virtual visit to Mexico City that enhances the cultural element of the class and helps students engage with the curriculum.

We also believe in celebrating achievements at Berlitz and all our summer language camps include a Celebration of Skills and Certificate at the end of the program.

Summer program details

All summer language camps with Berlitz are two-week programs from 9:00-12:00 PM.

How does it work?

Your child will be grouped with other students their age, and the lessons will be tailored to that age group. Children in age groups 4-7 and 8-11 will start their lessons with a warm-up activity, such as a song or a sketch. Their lesson will progress as they learn new material taught through books and games such as I-Spy and Guess Who. The lesson closes with a fun activity that reviews the material.

Students ages 12-15 and 16-18 will start their lessons with a warm up discussion, talking about events from their day or previous evening. They will move on to learning from books and magazines like National Geographic and other in-language source material that appeals to the students' interests. There are conversations about current events and personal cultural experiences. Discussions on grammar and more conversation close out the session.
