Summer language camps in Germany:
learn English, French or German in a beautiful villa near Berlin
Does a language course near Berlin - together with children from Germany and all over Europe- sound good to you? Why not learn English, French, or German in our summer language camp in Germany in Milow!
Milow is a small village in the middle of a nature reserve park in the west of Berlin.
The beautiful historical part of Milow is situated on a peninsula surrounded by the Havel, Stremme, and Gohlitz rivers in an area of outstanding natural beauty.
The German capital Berlin, one of the most diverse capitals in Europe, and the historic city of Potsdam are within easy reach for day trips and cultural activities.
You will stay in a beautiful villa, built in 1882 (renovated in 2010) where you will have fun and interesting German, English or French classes. Classes are held in the morning, while the afternoon and evenings are filled with exciting activities organised by our staff.
The language school in Berlin
Our lessons take place in spacious classrooms directly in the villa or nearby. Our language courses are attended by students from all over the world and have been designed specifically for young people, who are visiting a foreign country for a short period. Maximum class size is 15. All teachers are native speakers and qualified in teaching German, English and French as a foreign language. Teaching material is provided, and has been carefully compiled and selected for originality, content and relevance to young people.
You’ll take a placement test upon arrival, which determines your course level. The following levels are catered for: absolute beginners (A0), beginners (A1), lower intermediate (A2), intermediate (B1), upper intermediate (B2). At the end of the course, you’ll receive a certificate indicating your language level according to the Common European Framework of Reference Levels.
Please note that complete beginners can start their course only on the 7th July 2013.

Raft Building Workshop
One afternoon we will use our creative sides to build a raft made out of barrell, timber, planks of wood, and rope. Of course, you can count on a race being involved. An experienced trainer and lifeguard will be with you the whole time offering advice and tipps. Although you will be supervised, you should certainly be able to swim!
CD Production Workshop
We will send you a list with a lot of different songs where you can choose your favorite one. Let us know two weeks before your arrival (at the latest) what your favorite song is. We will then generate a professional playback of your favorite song starring you! One afternoon we will also take you to a recording studio, record your song, and have a photo shoot for your cd cover. Our recording professionals will edit your recording and provide you with your very own cd before your departure. You can order additional cds at the studio for your friends and family for 5€.
Supervision and Welfare
Our friendly and helpful International Team with staff members from England, Germany, France, Spain or other countries will run a fully supervised activity programme and guarantee supervision.
Your safety and welfare is our top priority: there is one supervisor responsible for 10 students.
The members of our team have been carefully selected for their responsible and caring attitude and for being fun-loving and outgoing. They are the people you can turn to at any time for assistance.
