We encourage the volunteers to stay for one or two days after the camp (we take care of the lodging if it s up to 2 day) to say a proper good-bye to the students and do some more sightseeing in city. During the orientation program the teachers get to know each other, there s team-building and basic instruction in the methods of teaching. The Academic Program is centered on three daily classes, two before lunch and one after. French courses will be conducted in small groups consisting of ten persons maximum. Besides regular classes we also have evening tutoring and evening activities. So, this is not just teaching, but also creating a French-speaking environment and a community of people who enjoy studying and spending time together. Detailed schedule can be send upon request.
