Our camp for Englishspeakers - people who enjoy a great international atmosphere and have fun with English Action! 

Since 1973 the English Action Camp has fascinated students from all over the world. The combination of English tuition with great sports and creative leisure activities turn this camp into an unforgettable experience. 

Attention: Depending on the participants' age, gender and knowledge, the English Action Camp either takes place in the ya! adventure guesthouse Carinth, Salzburgerhof, Simonyhof or Tauernhof! 

Living the language day and night - English is the language you are talking during the camp! The ya! adventure guesthouses Carinth, Salzburgerhof, Tauernhof or Simonyhof are a meeting point for young participants from all over the world! Also our teachers and counsellors come from several countries: England, Ireland or USA. Together the following language classes, with 60 lessons à 45 minutes a week are organized:

  • In the Grammar Groups you will practice the most important rules of English grammar which will be made secure with many activities. You’ll see that learning grammar doesn’t have to be dry and boring!
  • Creativity is called for in the Project Groups! Perform in a radio show, report the camp news and create cartoons!
  • The English Workshops will provide you with the most common English vocabulary you can use for example on a trip to London.
  • Discussion Groups allow you to discuss current topics. You won’t be able to keep your mouth closed!

On the first day there will be an entry level test. According to the results the participants will be split in different ability groups. 

The sport- and freetime programme is made up of a colorful choice of activities, and offers a lot of variety! From mountain biking, to swimming in the nearby outdoor swim park, making samba drums and rain sticks, typical American sports and orienteering hikes, everything is possible! The evening programme also offers several attractions: disco, shows, indoor and outdoor games and a lot more!

yala Language Trainings are based on the „Common European Framework of Reference for Languages“.  The so called, CEF Levels, are recognised throughout Europe as the standard for language assessment. This framework make it possible to evaluate all four language skills (speaking, writing, listening and reading). You can find a description of the CEF Levels HERE.
