Practicing sports or doing activities together is universal: communication will develop smoothly while training, experiencing and playing all together.
Stay healthy: All our teen summer camps abroad have a nonsmoking policy!

How many hours will I study foreign languages every week during my international summer program for high school students?
The French summer camps offers for example 15 hours of French lessons per week in groups of 8 to 15 students. Most language courses would last for 3 to 4 hours a day, 5 days a week.
Learning the language in the country where is spoken, is more beneficial than studying the language in your home country. The constant immersion and exposure to the language make the progression more significant as studying a few hours of French, Spanish, Japanese or English every week. Furthermore, by living the language for a few weeks during an language immersion camp abroad in France, Germany Ireland, Italy, Japan, or Spain, you will gain confidence and feel more comfortable expressing yourself in class back home.
A typical day in a teenage language summer course includes:
- 3 hours or more devoted to language classes,
- then group lunches under the tutor’s supervision
- and 2 1/2 hours or more for afternoon field trips, excursions and guided visits.
- Evening activities
