What are ACLE Camps?
ACLE Camps aim to:
- Provide a full-immersion experience in English for Italian children who are unable to spend the summer in an English-speaking country.
- Create enthusiasm and motivation for new multicultural experiences.
- Demonstrate that the traditional Italian teacher-centred scholastic system of “chalk and talk” fails to stimulate the emotions and energy that an entertaining atmosphere can provide.
City Camps are usually held at a local schools and the children come five days per week, generally from 9 to 5. Trainee tutors are hosted in either a flat or by a family who opens their home and hearts to them.
Summer Camps are residential and usually held in a hotel where the children come and stay for a week at a time. Trainee tutors also stay at the hotel and tutor all week with the children, providing activities such as lessons, drama, games, sports and evening activities.
High School Campus is a programme for high school students. As with our other camps, the aim of High School Campus is to provide students with a rich cultural and linguistic experience adapted to their ages, abilities, and interests.
If you’re enthusiastic, positive and dependable, this could be the experience for you!
