- 4-6 lessons (45 minutes) every day – the lessons take place in an entertaining conversation-based manner in which every child is compelled to develop their communication skills in a foreign language
- The course is focused on building conversation skills, active perception of the language, natural pronunciation and spontaneous use of the language (which is often lacking)
- Fast and spontaneous development of communication skills
- Classes always consist of 8 - 12 pupils
- Leisure time activities are organized in the way usual for summer camps – i.e. games, competitions, hiking, swimming, camp fire, the path of bravery, discotheque, lessons of Latin American dances, etc.
- At the same time the leisure time program is linked to the lessons, the children are given interesting tasks to be resolved in groups with their leader (foreign teacher)
- If possible, the children will have the leisure time arranged with their English teachers in order to spontaneously develop their communication skills
