During our language camp in dreamy Tuscany studying is important but not what we do all do. After all you’re on holiday. It is important to us to make you realise that learning English can be fun. Be surprised and excited by the sports and leisure time activities and enjoy Tuscany with its picturesque towns.


In English sessions our language teamers (normally students getting a teaching degree in English) help you improve your English and provide you with the necessary day-to-day vocabulary. Fun comes first and we emphasise communication and speaking practice. In the mornings, you will do different exercises to improve your grammar and to reduce the fear of speaking a foreign language. In order to make the holiday a proper holiday, the language sessions are interwoven with the daily activity programme and you will still have plenty of time to explore your destination.


Interested in improving your English while enjoying all the perks of a beach holiday? Vada in Tuscany is the perfect place for you. The campsite Campo dei Fiori*** is located close to the town of Vada in a shady pine forest which keeps you cool even in the hottest midday heat. The campsite has a large pool and the beach is only 700m away. A supermarket is close by for your daily shopping. Enjoy typical Italian pasta and pizza in one of the many trattorias. The campsite also provides football and volleyball fields and a tennis court – sports and activities are an important part of the programme. You won’t go hungry because you can enjoy a tasty breakfast buffet. In the evenings, we provide hot dinner including salads and dessert. The common area, which is only used by GO customers, is not only used for breakfast and dinner but also provides a great location for evening activities or hanging with new friends. You stay in comfortable tents for up to eight people.

Language course

English workshops

In 15 theoretical and 15 active lessons our trained language teamers practise grammar, vocabulary, reading and listening comprehension and conversation with our students. The language meetings are fitted into the daily schedule in order to ensure continuity. The language meetings take place at camp, on the beach or somewhere close to the camp. The lessons are interactive and engaging. During the language meetings, all communication is in English, materials are supplied. Most of our language teamers are getting teaching degrees, are teachers in training or lived abroad for a longer period of time, which ensures their high level of English. Prior to the holiday, the language teamers are trained in special seminars.

Journey

Travel to and from the holiday location by coach

The journey is undertaken as an overnight coach trip in modern coaches. All journeys comply with the specified driving and rest periods; the coach companies are carefully selected and we have been working with them for many years. The supervision of the students by our teamers starts at the departure location where the student gets on the coach.

Self-arranged journey

Self-arranged journey to the camp location is possible. Supervision starts when the teamers welcome the student at the campsite. If arrival and departure are self-arranged the holiday price is reduced by 70,- €.

Accommodation

Campsite Campo dei Fiori *** | in tents

The campsite includes a pool area (approx. 800m2), a supermarket, a bar, a pizzeria, a restaurant, an animation area as well as football, tennis and volleyball fields. The beach is approx. 700m away.
The students stay in frame tents for a maximum of 8 students, proper beds, comfortable mattresses and wooden floors. 
Attention: You need to bring a pillow, sleeping bad, bed sheet, towels and mess kit.

Board

Go All inclusive board especially for our young students.

The GO Al board includes a breakfast buffet, a lunchtime snack / self-packed lunch and a changing dinner. Students can get included beverages (water, juice) at the Al Bar at the campsite. Board starts with a welcome breakfast on arrival day and ends with a self-packed lunch on departure day. 
Especially on our holidays for young students we believe fixed meal times for the entire group are important.

Supervision

Supervised language holiday

The supervision starts when the student boards the coach. The teamers are normally at least 20 years old and are first point of contact for our students 24/7. The teamers are trained particularly for their tasks as language teamers. Prior to their fist job with us, they need to complete the seminar designed by pedagogic staff. The teamers are responsible for the daily leisure time activity programme, the trips, evening activities and all other activities. The teamers stay at the same site as the students.

Supervision key (teamer : students): ages 12 to 15: approx. 1 : 12, ages 16 to 17: approx. 1 : 16
