Duitsland | Natuur en taalcursus
Samen met 19 andere vrijwilligers ga je voor 12 dagen naar een natuur en taalcursusproject.
Het project duurt van 14 t/m 26 april.
Let op: naast het inschrijfgeld betaal je ter plekke nog een lokale bijdrage van EUR 160.
Main work will be in the forest, as maintenance of young stands, field mapping of new trees, planting of rare trees, searching and marking of habitat trees, waters care. Participants will also be doing various manual works to prepare the area around the house of the nature-friends for leisure activities of groups coming from the city. Working-time will not exceed 4-5 hours daily, anyway excluding Saturday and Sunday.
Accommodation will be in a house with bedrooms, kitchen, toilets, shower. Cooking, cleaning, shopping, and all daily tasks will be done by the group itself. Like in all workcamps, accommodation, food and travel-costs for excursions are free as well as materials needed for the lectures.
The camp is located on a wooded-hill less than 3 km from the city centre. Marburg is an historical, picturesque university town, 100 km north of Frankfurt am Main. Among the ca. 82.000 inhabitants, 25.000 or more are students from all over the world.
Host organisation is an environmental organisation: Nature Friends of Marburg. They have already been organising international voluntary language-workcamps for many years. It is a workcamp including German language training. Volunteers will be speaking exclusively German during the whole camp. In the 2 weeks they will get all in all 18 hours of German-language training. Our teachers are partly trained teachers, partly students. Careful: we don t provide a standard course like in a professional language-school. Lessons are interactive and mostly focused on intercultural topics, aiming first to improve quickly the communication skills of the volunteers.
The project is not conceived for absolute beginners. Participants must be able already to use German at least on a basic level (A2). They also must be willing to communicate with each other only in German all along the camp and not only during the lessons, and never use English or their own mother tongue. This is an imperative part of the concept.
