Your Trip Itinerary
All qualified applicants will fly into the designated airport of Hamburg where you’ll be picked up. If you fly to a nearby airport and travel by public transport to your placement location, you can join organized shuttle transfers from Walsrode.
Beyond icebreakers, orientation is your chance to get the real inside scoop on camp living and teaching in Germany from local experts.
Not only will you pig out at a welcome dinner, you’ll have a full briefing on camp logistics, uncover the do’s and dont’s of German culture and nail down the house rules.
Your teaching experience
It’s time to get into camp life! You’ll be confident after already completing 120 hours of online TEFL training.
You’ll be teaching students ranging in age from six to 16 with mixed English ability, giving you an incredible first-time teaching experience. Your work week will vary according to your schedule of classes and camps activities, around 15 hours total teaching — leaving up to 35 hours of extra curricular activities per week and some time for lesson planning too.
Your goal as an English camp teacher will be focused on conversational English practice, helping your eager students to feel confident as they develop their skills through games, drama, music and mime. You’ll be able to ask advice from camp leaders but don’t forget to bring your own creativity and ideas with you, this is your chance to shine.
If you play the guitar – bring it! Or any instrument. The children love to sing songs around the camp fire.
With an exciting line up of excursions included, you can prepare to check off a few amazing bucket list items!
After your internship
Congratulations, you did it! Make sure to celebrate this achievement. It’s time to decide if you’d like to see more of Germany, traveling or teaching (or both).
You might decide to extend your stay in Central Europe and teach for longer. The possibilities are endless for you now as a confident and experienced TEFL teacher.
