Over the years Languages.lu has built its reputation with an innovative and unique approach to teaching. We do not recreate the stressful and competitive school environment, but rather allow the juniors to advance at their own pace.
Therefore, our language camps place the emphasis on natural and spontaneous communication which helps the children:
acquire and revise vocabulary and grammar, improve their oral expression and interaction
discover the practical side of the language through creative, musical and cultural activities, which are adapted to and incorporate the students’ passions and interests
gain confidence and communicate better
meet and interact with other children from different countries and cultures, make new friends, have fun together while learning, practicing a foreign language and developing their communication skills in a different language than their mother tongue.
The discovery of the language is made through activities that are fun, interesting, educational and practical, and which are adapted to the group’s age and language level. The activities may include:
Cooking activities, usually on Wednesday morning, to learn not only the related vocabulary but also to become familiar with some easy recipes from different countries. The children will be more sensitive to the fact that our health and moods depend greatly on what we eat. Hence the importance of healthy eating habits and of learning some basic cooking skills at an young age;
Arts and crafts: either for young kids or for teens, art can be used for all levels. We can for example introduce colours and emotions. The opportunity to learn vocabulary from art is unlimited but we can also use art to teach certain grammar points, such as comparative adjectives, prepositions of location or to practice certain verb tenses by discussing what is happening in the picture or what the artist might have been looking at when he was painting, and it's also a good importunity to practice modal verbs. Art can inspire children to express themselves in ways nothing else can. And since expression is communication, they will do great progress in the process;
Theater and music allow children to learn while having fun and to downplay language learning, making it less formal. Much more entertaining than listening to a teacher repeat the same thing which often happens in some schools, right? Thanks to theater and music performances, students develop crucial skills, e.i. listening, curiosity, attention, memorization creativity and especially…self-confidence! From a technical point of view, this method allows students to quickly pick up the correct accents and intonations. Their ears become familiar with the correct pronunciations which they will get a chance to practice and improve.
Role plays, such as birthday parties, presenting the weather on TV;
discuss entrepreneurship and meet with some local entrepreneurs, prepare questions, debates, propose marketing new ideas or new products / services;
write and act out songs, short plays or soap-opera episodes;
watch and discuss on suitable movies;
play outdoor games that encourage both team spirit and communication skills in the acquired language;
planting bulbs and/or seeds (spring & automn);
imagine and write about an ideal country (name, population, language, type of housing & transportation etc);
games and many different projects....
Our camps are NOT the equivalent of school tutoring.
Should your child have specific problems in school, we recommend you to register him in our individual school tutoring programme.
