German for Kids @ Berlin Young & Fun

You´ll learn German staying next to a great lake in Berlin, and more than that - you´ll also meet German children your age! The camp uses the facilities of a private university in Berlin Schmöckwitz. German kids spend their summer holidays here, too, and they will take part in all the activities and excursions that we offer after class - a great way to practice your German right away! You have a choice of various activities every day: we´ll do talent shows, have barbecues, go swimming ... . And every week we organize 2 excursions to Berlin highlights such as Potsdamer Platz, Berlin´s new Downtown, Berlin Wall or Berlin Zoo
