Classes

Our English as a second language (ESL) classes are interactive and practical to encourage learning in a playful way, as it is most suitable for a fun, summer camp environment. The camp is international, with kids representing several countries each year, so you can practice what you learned in real life conversations. Classes are available from beginner to advanced levels every week, so you can always find the right group for you. Weekly sessions start with a short placement test, then the classes are made up of friendly and speaking-oriented exercises and activities. At the end of the weekly sessions, we provide feedback about your in-class performance, through the teacher's assessment form and a video recording of the group project.

Other English camps by usFunside English Day Camp in Budapest

English classes take two 120-minute lessons each day, Monday through Friday, in small classes (4 to 8 students per class), based on language level and age. A week-long camp has up to 20, while a two-week 'long camp' has up to 40 hours worth of classes. If you would like to combine the English program with another subject, for instance windsurfing, then you will have one 120-minute class of English and one 120-minute class of windsurfing. (See the full list of possible camp combinations below.) In the afternoons and evenings there are several exciting free time activities: try the Funside Funfair, visit the aqua park with us or join our World Records Week (see details below).


Native English Camp and English Drama Camp

If you are at a pre-intermediate level or higher, and you would like to learn with native English teachers, then you may also choose our Funside Balaton Native English Camp (learn more here) or our Funside Balaton English Drama Camp (learn more here) as well, where you will still have the same great free time activities.

Weekly group work and presentations

At the Funside Balaton English and Native English Camps we work with our own project-based curriculum. During the first three days of each session we cover new material relating to the Theme of the Week through playful and speaking-oriented exercises, then in the second half of the week we start working on a group project, which is then preformed by the class in English in front of our other English groups. The group work may be a live play, a short video or a creative work. All presentations are recorded on video and handed out on a DVD at the end of the week, so that you and your family can watch them after the camp. You can check out previous projects on our dedicated page, or have a look at one of our favorite group works below.
