Participants will be doing various manual works to prepare the area for leisure activities of several groups of citizens coming from Marburg. For example, clearing the place, gardening, painting, building up/taking down tents. Working-time will not exceed 4-5 hours daily, anyway excluding Saturday and Sunday.
In a house with bedrooms, kitchen, toilets, shower. Cooking, cleaning, shopping, and all daily tasks will be done by the group itself. Like in each workcamp, accommodation, food and travel-costs for group excursions are free as well as pedagogical materials.
The camp is located on a wooded-hill named Stadtwald , in a holiday-camp more than 5 km far from the city centre. A bus-connection allows to go to downtown. Marburg is a 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 the municipality of Marburg, holiday-camp Freizeitgelaende Stadtwald . 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. The camp includes an interactive 18-hour German language training, based on the needs and requests of the participants in order to improve their already existent language skills.
The project is not conceived for absolute beginners. Participants must be already able to communicate in German at least for daily needs. They also must be willing to communicate with each other only in German all along the camp and not only during the lessons.Extra-fee of 160euro to be paid upon arrival. A certificate for participating in a project with language-course will be given at the end of the camp.
