English Language Lessons
Camp Cooper is a traditional residential summer camp for children and young people aged 7 - 17. For international students that would like to improve their English language skills, we offer high quality English language lessons combined with an English immersion programme which will help develop life-skills and create long-lasting friendships.
Camp Cooper offers the opportunity for campers to create their own personalised programme. Campers choose 2 activities per week that they specialise in for 2 hours per day. English lessons are one of the many choices that include tennis, football, film-making, performing arts, outdoor adventure, mountain biking, journalism, art, sports, creative superstar, Rockstar! and golf.
Camp Cooper gives international campers the opportunity to learn English in a fully English speaking environment. Our counsellors all speak English fluently and the entire programme is taught and led in English. This means that international campers will learn English throughout the day; speaking with their friends during meals, taking part in activities and chatting to their friends in the cabin.
This offers campers the chance to learn in an English speaking environment and whilst we offer English language lessons, as much learning is done outside of the classroom as in it!
Our Camp Cooper Programme Includes:
- Up to 10 hours of English language tuition available per week
- Engaging tuition from qualified & experienced English teachers
- Cultural trips e.g Edinburgh, Glasgow, St. Andrews
- Exciting evening activities such as talent shows, dances, team challenges and many more
- Safe, picturesque location in the Scottish countryside
- Mix of nationalities, including English to ensure campers practice English with new international friends.
- Maximum number of campers from any nationality (20%)
- Staff to camper ratio of 1:4
Style of Teaching
At Camp Cooper our Engish lessons are designed to be fun, challenging and have a social aspect to it, meaning that they create friendships at the same time as learning. Our qualified teachers will teach campers the class curriculum through games, songs and activities. We make sure that campers enjoy their learning experience and have fun in the classroom environment.
We focus on campers learning to speak English fluently through building up their confidence and ensuring they constantly speak English througout their time at Camp Cooper. Our teachers constantly encourage and motivate the campers and give them individual attention.
Certification & Progress Report
At the end of the course, every child receives a certificate and detailed report to record their achievement.
On the first day of Camp, each camper’s English level is assessed. This means that they will be able to learn with others who are at a similar stage.
At the end of every week, teachers re-assess each camper to see if they have made sufficient progress to move up to the next class.
