International Students' Camp: English in Practice
Objective: The schools in Estonia are situated in a socio-economically disadvantaged area where neither parents nor schools have means to fund language oriented student exchanges. In order to motivate students to learn languages and give them the opportunity to communicate the schools initiated a project – a language camp with a certain theme “European Union and the Youth”. The camp had 89 participants who worked in six groups. The group leaders were students from Tartu Miina Härma Gymnasium which is an English biased school.
Activities included: language lessons by partner teachers, language games, sport activities, tours, parties at fire, style parties, a European Day, competitions, discussions between euro-optimists and sceptics.
