                          are staying. A practical service for a smooth landing.

                          by train. Just like our "ESL airport transfer", a member of the ESL team
                          welcomes you at your arrival at the train station and drives you to your
                          destination.

                          Bound for our course centre in Germany, an accompanying adult takes
                          care of the students from their departure at the train station in Lausanne
                          until their arrival at ESL Westerwald. In this way, you will travel in a relaxed
                          manner, without worrying about the train changes to be carried out.

                               By bus
                          ESL organises bus transfers from the main cities in German-speaking
                          Switzerland, bound for the course centres located in French-speaking
                          Switzerland. This is a good opportunity to get to know some other
                          students before the arrival at the course centre.

The ESL language courses



                          Learning a language has never been so fun!
                          The ESL course programmes have been especially designed for young students and are adapted to the level of each
                          participant. Thanks to sound teaching experience, ESL proposes an effective and enjoyable approach to language
                          learning. The teachers attach particular importance to communication. They propose interactive and motivating
                          classes which allow for the easy practice of newly acquired language skills. Progress is made naturally in a pleasant
                          atmosphere.This is the dream opportunity to develop your language skills and to have an unforgettable
                          experience.



                          The ESL teachers
                          Our teaching team is made up of young and dynamic teachers who teach in their native language. The ESL teachers
                          are chosen for their teaching talent, their enthusiasm and for the attention they know to give to each student. They
                          make every effort in order to create a relaxed, fun and stimulating atmosphere. The topics of the lessons are as close
                          as can be to the interests of the students. Even during the extracurricular activities, the teachers encourage the
                          students to use the language being studied. This fun and motivating teaching is the key to effective learning.




                          Courses adapted to your level
                          Whatever their level of skills in the language they are studying, our students take a course adapted to their level.
                          At the beginning of their stay, all of the ESL students sit an evaluation test, thanks to which each student is placed
                          in a class corresponding best to his/her level. Each week, a small evaluation allows the teacher to accurately follow
                          up on the progress being made by each of his/her students.




                          ESL certificate
                          At the end of your stay, you receive an ESL certificate which attests to your participation in classes, validates
                          the language level reached and specifies the results obtained.

Standard and intensive courses
Standard course
20 lessons per week
(Leysin-Juniors / 15 lessons per week)

Intensive course
25 lessons per week
(Leysin-Juniors / 20 lessons per week)

The ESL classes take place from Monday to Fri-
day. In each course venue, you have the choice
between a standard course and an intensive
course. If you choose the intensive course, you
benefit from an additional lesson per day, fo-
cussed mainly on oral communication and the
development of common projects. The module of
25 lessons is ideal for gaining maximum benefit
from your group classes.



Optional courses
Conversation courses
This course includes two weekly lessons of 45
minutes. Thanks to game-related exercises in
various contexts (role plays, theatre, etc.), the
conversation course will allow you to develop
your ability to express yourself in a more fluent
and natural way in various situations of everyday
life.

Private courses
In order to make maximum progress, you can
choose the ESL private course programme. This
option allows you to benefit from an additional 5

Included activities


A fascinating programme!
At ESL, we are convinced that a great programme
of activities is a key element to the success of a language
study stay. It is for this reason that, in all of our camps,
we propose a very complete and varied programme,
offering numerous exciting opportunities for sports,
encounters and leisure, which allow to create a warm
atmosphere, strengthen links of friendship between
students and of course, greatly contribute to the practice
of the studied language.
And in order that each of our young clients may participate
in full security and that no one is left out, all of the
activities, organised and supervised by our teams of activity
coordinators, are entirely included in the price of the stay.




                Sports
     In each of the course centres, a dozen or so varied sports, included in the programme, are proposed to students during their stay. On a daily basis,
     several indoor or outdoor sports are organised and supervised by the ESL team. According to your preferences, you can, for example, choose between
     beach volleyball, badminton, basketball, football, street hockey, swimming and table tennis, among others.




                 Excursions
     In order to add a cultural dimension to the activities programme, ESL also proposes numerous excursions. They are organised each week in our
     various course centres. In this way, in Switzerland, you visit, depending on the course venue, the medieval Château de Chillon, the Brissago Islands
     or the tourist city of Lucerne. Contemplate Paris from the top of the Eiffel Tower or explore Monaco or the Île Sainte-Marguerite on the Côte d’Azur for
     example. Westerwald proposes, among others, the Chocolate Museum in Cologne, or an incredible Sea life centre, or even a crossing on the Rhine. Each
     week, the discovery of the region in question takes place over a day and a half which is dedicated to these excursions and which allow you to discover
     the region. Your camera is a must!




                Eveningactivities
     The evening activities organised by ESL are favourable moments during which you can practise your newly acquired language skills in a relaxed way.
     Whether for cinema, barbecue or disco evenings, the ESL team in charge of organising the activities make every effort in order that you may make
     memorable progress.

Training a specific sport!
Thanks to the sports packages, you can practise intensively the activity of your choice!
Whether tennis, sailing, horse riding, skiing/snowboarding, dance, downhill sports, football, golf or deep-sea diving,
take full advantage of your stay by taking part in one of our 11 optional packages. Organised and supervised by qualified
instructors, they are proposed as a supplement to the standard programme and do not encroach on the included multi-
activities programme, excursions or evening activities. Take advantage of your language study stay in Switzerland,
France or Germany in order to dedicate time to your favourite sport.

   sitting in a toboggan on a track, on a 3000m high glacier, you will tear down the slope at great speed, lying flat
   along spectacular curves.
