Teenage Summer Camp
This is a conversation-based programme. It is not about traditional teaching; it’s more of a cultural exchange programme.
We offer English immersion camps helping young Polish participants break language and cultural barriers without going abroad.
Throughout the week, participants take part in workshops, field trips, games, 1:1, 1:2 and 1:3 speaking sessions, and more group activities, adding up to more than 70 hours of conversation, conducted fully in English.
As a native speaker your job will be to talk for the majority of the day in many different forms from one-on-one conversations, group activities, workshops, games to relaxing over a meal or a drink. The format of the conversations is not limited and you are free to talk about anything you like.
We also encourage people to have their one-on-one discussions while enjoying a stroll, sporting, having a tea or coffee, etc. The venue includes sporting facilities.
There is no classroom teaching. For every two Polish participants there is one native English speaker. Participants are encouraged to speak and have the opportunity to learn natural and authentic English from our volunteers, who in turn get to see the Polish countryside and learn Polish culture through contact with our participants.
Teaching qualifications or previous teaching experience not required.
