If you are thinking of taking your child to a language camp abroad, you will surely have a lot of questions. Knowing if it is really necessary for them to go away from home, at what age it is convenient for them to spend the summer in a camp, what activities they do or what is the best place to send them, are some doubts that parents who are thinking that their son perform a linguistic immersion in a second language. EF, an organization that each year organizes summer camps in different destinations, gives us the answers.
Send children to learn another language at a summer camp
Why do summer camps arise abroad? Learning English is essential and many parents are concerned that their children will be able to master it at an early age. One of the best ways to learn a language for a child is to expose themselves to the language through playful activities with peers of their age. From that idea, summer camps arise abroad, which are organized so that children and young people enjoy varied and entertaining activities, having a great time and being exposed to the language 24 hours a day.
From what age can my son go camping abroad? It is considered that an 8 year old child is already prepared to spend time abroad, if he is supervised 24 hours by a monitor. It is very important that children and young people traveling abroad do so with an organization that ensures this surveillance and protection for 24 hours a day, through the constant accompaniment of a monitor.
What activities do the camps offer abroad? In foreign camps with languages, children usually have some hours of classes from Monday to Friday. However, the true learning occurs because they are surrounded by people of all nationalities and to communicate with them they begin to practice what they learned in class, quickly internalizing concepts and words.
What is the best for my son? When choosing a camp abroad, you must choose the one that best suits the tastes of your child. There is an immense offer of summer camps to choose from, and there are even thematic camps if your child is interested in activities such as golf, soccer, acting, dancing, adventure sports or water sports such as surfing. Also, depending on the tastes of your child, you can take him to a camp in a city or in the middle of nature.
