Learning a foreign language will put your child at a major advantage in an increasingly diverse world. Research has shown that bilingual children are better at deciphering conflicting cues than monolinguals. Proficient bilingual children exhibit enhanced sensitivity to verbal and non-verbal cues, show greater attention to their listeners’ needs and go on to learn additional languages with greater ease compared to monolinguals. New languages open the doors to other cultures, ideas and ideologies and make your child feel at home wherever in the world they go. 

The Alpadia Language Camp in Leysin, across Fall, Spring or Summer, will immerse your child in your language of choice while encouraging an all round development across sports, the arts and technology. 

Juniors (ages 8-14 years) and Teens (ages 13-17) will have the experience of a lifetime at the Alpadia Leysin, a resort in Switzerland that has been traditionally associated with wellness. Depending on which season the camp is held in, temperatures can vary from the high single digits centigrade to the mid-twenties. However, Leysin is well known for its sunny days. Its history includes the work of physician Auguste Rollier who practised sunlight therapy here for over 40 years. 

Your child will attend classes in Le Central-Résidence, a campus with an on-site restaurant, sunny terrace, indoor swimming pool and games area. Your junior or teen can choose from customised language camps - French or English across all three seasons and the addition of German in Fall and Spring. They will also enjoy a varied social programme designed for physical wellness, intellectual stimulation, the development of curiosity and aesthetics. Whether it is sport or sightseeing, visits to a water park or a museum, the children will follow a well planned schedule. They will attend classes and work and play alongside a wonderfully diverse group of international students with representation from every continent on the planet. 

The Alpadia Language Camp in Leysin is held at a wonderful mountain location in a 3-star hotel. Student bedrooms are beautifully appointed in an Alpine style with balconies that boast impressive views of the Alps. But while the free Wifi, list of activities and facilities are quantifiable, it is the experience of spending weeks immersed in new cultures that will be the true takeaway of the Alpadia Language Camp in Leysin. 

Course Description

The Alpadia Language Camp in Leysin is designed to create fluency and confidence. Your child will practice speaking, grammar, listening, reading and writing skills. Following a curriculum that is effective for juniors, students can also opt for additional private or intensive classes to hasten their progress. 

All courses at the Alpadia Language Camps include a special Project Language module to get students working together on their own creations. These encourage collaboration and teach project management. These projects will include producing videos, writing comics, directing plays and more. 

Classes begin from 8:30 a.m. and continue until lunch time which is at 12:30 p.m. From 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. students will be offered a variety of activities across faculties. They may play sport (football, swimming, minigolf, table tennis, ice skating, basketball, bouldering, street hockey, handball, baseball, dodgeball etc), go on a hike or a cultural excursion. Evenings are for unwinding with fun, team building activities like a ‘newspaper fashion show’, a talent show, karaoke or a disco. 

*A premium activities option includes horse riding, mountain biking, tennis or the art of pâtisserie for an extra fee. 

Lights out at 10:00 p.m for all students. 

The Alpadia Language Camp in Leysin is conducted by trained teachers in small classes with students matched for their language levels. Each lesson is 45 minutes long and the class strength is a maximum of 15 students. 

Grammar, listening, reading, and writing skills as well as speaking will be taught. Students can opt for additional lessons. The Project Language modules include collaborative work producing videos, writing comics, directing plays and more alongside your child’s new friends. 

There will be a class test at the end of every week to check the child’s progress. 

Classes are conducted Monday - Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Children will play sports, or participate in creative workshops, excursions and premium excursions from 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Post dinner, the evening’s entertainment is an extension of the language immersion. Children are encouraged to practice their new language skills on torch-light walks, BBQs, karaoke, movie nights and other social activities.
