Summer camps are distinguished by high quality of educational programs, comfortable accommodation conditions and a rich, interesting program of extra-curricular leisure and recreation.
The small town of Hamm used to be a well-known mining center, and now it is a city with an extensive cultural component. Also there is a huge number of gardens, parks and recreational areas - among the outstanding attractions can be noted the Maximillian Park with the famous sculpture of a glass elephant.
This course is quite intensive, so it is offered to active, smart pupils, ready for an active rhythm of classes.
The information in the lessons is presented in an interesting, boring form - a large number of interactive, role games, simulated situations and dialogues are used. The main focus is on the development of communication and speech skills, the correction of accent and pronunciation, the expansion of vocabulary.
Every day, students perform a block of homework, and every week - the final test of the material passed. So the teacher can more closely monitor the level of progress, if necessary adjust the curriculum, focus more on hard topics or language aspects.
Residences are located directly on the campus: school staff guarantee the safety of students around the clock, monitor the observance of order and discipline, create a friendly and warm atmosphere. For the students of the Humboldt-Institut Heessen Castle , cozy double rooms are ready (common facilities are located on the floors): the age and international criteria, as well as the knowledge of the German language of each student are taken into account when resettlement. Meals are organized according to the full boarding scheme, three times a day, light snacks and fresh fruit are provided twice a day.
