A lively experience in practising spoken English set in enjoyable summer Mediterranean camps at the sea designed to meet the joy of very young students on their first travel to international English lessons with lots of classroom activities and movement, drawing interpretations, children's language games, acting, animation, theatre, music, singing in both the class and at suitable external motivating environments to the equivalent of 20 lessons per week spread over 4 or 5 days to class groups of maximum 15 students of similar knowledge of English ranging from level A1 to C2 of the Common European Framework Reference with joint groups on external activities for durations of 2 to 6 weeks.
NSTS young, creative and trained teachers patiently stimulate the kids to make use of the wealth of English learnt at school. Over a few casual and fun-filled weeks of games, songs and stories the child opens up and starts using the language with confidence. This congenial atmosphere spills out of the classroom into the residence where the kids play games, use their talents and share experiences with others coming from different countries while being supervised caringly by animateurs who also take them on outdoor activities to the countryside, the beach and on cultural events. In the evenings the kids watch DVDs, play games, go for walks and enjoy activities suited to their age until it is time for lights out. The kids live exclusively at the NSTS Residences together with and under the watchful eye of the NSTS animateurs, but the parents’ responsibility for their child’s actions and behaviour remains vested in them.
