VDC Language – English or Mandarin - Available for boys and girls from 7 - 14 years old.
Language programmes have long been a corner-stone of Village Camps’ residential camps. Developed and fine-tuned over many years, Village Camps brought its successful English language programme to the Village Day Camp™ (VDC) in 2015. For 2017, we will be offering both English and Mandarin languages. Campers who opt for this programme will partake four mornings each week of intense, yet enjoyable instruction where they will concentrate on two-way conversation, namely speaking and listening. The English course will follow the curriculum used by Village Camps’ European residential programmes.
The unique Village Camps approach to language has shown to successfully achieve significant progress and more times than not has proven to produce better results than classic language schools. The programme will be available for beginner and intermediate levels with a maximum of 12 students per class. Campers will be given a short entry exam in order to determine level on the first day. All teachers will be native English speakers and qualified to teach campers of the proposed levels.
In the afternoon, campers will continue with the regular camp programme by joining groups of the same age and participating in a wide range of activities. The afternoon will also serve as the perfect opportunity for English language campers to practice their newly acquired skills with other campers from the region who are English speaking. This adds enormous value to the programme as it will further enhance the learning experience.
We must suggest that parents who register their children for this course try and do so for a full session (two weeks) as this will be sure to set the stage for better results.
