Your Teaching Experience

High octane? Check! Life-changing? Check! The life of an English summer camp teacher in Germany is definitely one to shout about. Not only do you get to push your creativity to the limit playing ESL games and teaching the odd song, you will pass on important language skills and lessons on your students.

Camp activities run week-long and one weekday will be set aside for an excursion to a local town or amusement park. Every second week campers, teachers and leaders experience an overnight hike and camp out in the woods.

Through games, activities, fun excursions, mini field trips, debates, drama, music, and any other creative techniques you devise, you’ll be delivering conversational English lessons that will be the talking point around the campfire.

The goals for your summer camp adventure?

1) Give your campers conversational English practice.

2) Stay energetic.

3) Be an adventurous role-model.

Expect to teach English for ~15 hours per week, with an additional ~30 hours devoted to camp activities including sports, drama, and crafts to allow space for more recreational English learning. Budget some time for lesson and activity planning, too!
