Organization with experience

The course leaders

Our course leaders have plenty of experience in working with children and teens. On the campus they are responsible for organizing the lessons, the sports, culture and leisure-time program, and also for health and safety. They are available to the course participants and their parents at all times for any questions and suggestions, and are always ready to help or provide advice. Parents can contact the course leaders by e-mail or telephone.

The teachers

The young participants in the Young Learners Program benefit from the expertise and qualifications of our teachers. Each class has its own class teacher. The lessons, with a maximum class size of 16, are designed with the age group in mind. The activities are varied, with plenty of changes of pace. Classroom activities take the form of a playful, interactive process. Naturally our teachers respond to individual abilities and learning objectives and are pleased to help when learners have special requests. They are also available outside classroom hours for advice and individual study assistance. The classroom teachers accompany their classes on the excursions for getting to know Germany and its people.

The counselors

Our counselors are there for the course participants 24 hours a day. They plan the program of sports, cultural and leisure-time activities, taking the wishes of the participants into account. The counselors are available to deal with all everyday questions and concerns that arise during the course. They are handpicked by the Goethe-Institut for these courses and have a great deal of experience in working with children and teens.

On average, at least one counselor is available for a maximum of 16 course participants. The younger the participants, the more intensive the support by the counselors. This ensures the best possible leisure-time program and the right level of supervision.
