Reading, speaking and writing in any language are the practical manifestations of three of the four main components of the language. Or these practical activities help to develop not only the basic knowledge of a language, but also its overall acquisition. To understand the practical activities, we must first get acquainted with the basic concepts. Each language is composed of four main components: phonology, semantics, grammar and pragmatics. The development of the four components takes place gradually and gradually from the earliest childhood, when the language is the mother tongue, or language. The development of language, in this case, becomes quite natural as the childRead More →

At LuckyKids International Camp we don’t deal with children – we take care of them, help them, encourage them and stimulate them. At LuckyKids International Camp we don’t like the word discipline in the sense of imposing rules for control. We have basic rules that we want to be followed by all children, but they are designed to give peace and pleasant coexistence, as well as security to all participants. It will probably sound contradictory and we will explain this in detail. Communication hygiene – Exchange of information and symbiosis between the three countries – parents-camp team-children A very important factor for the well-being ofRead More →

The process of reading itself is decoding written characters (letters) and the perception of the meaning and significance embedded in the combination of these characters (text). Reading skills are acquired through practice at school and at home. When we talk about reading in a foreign language, it is good to first look at the real situation – does our child read in his native language? How do you read – are there any difficulties? Does our child have established reading habits? What is the method that our child prefers to use to acquire new information – read, listen or watch (respectively, what memory is betterRead More →

At LuckyKids International Summer Camp we create an artificial English language environment for children so that they can practice the language. Logically, our first advice to parents will be directed in this direction. Practicing the language is extremely important. For this reason, any opportunity that the child can receive as a workshop is beneficial. We start the recommendations from the summer. Summer period: Summer period is very rewarding for practicing the language, through informal or extracurricular activities. If the child has been at a language camp with us for 7-14 days, he has another month and a half in which to find application in English. HolidaysRead More →

The first line that comes to mind when I hear this question: are the English lessons in the camp different from those at school – oooh, they have nothing in common. Then I wondered if that was really the case? When we talk about lessons, lesson plans, methods, methodologies, we are all clear that they are as many as there are teachers in the world. But what unites them. When you are in school, you follow the specific planning from the specific textbook. The textbook sets specific topics and they have specific topics and tasks. The teacher takes the lesson, develops the lesson plan withRead More →

Before answering this question, perhaps it is good to ask ourselves what does progress in language mean to us? Is it a higher grade in class, praise from an adult relative or from the teacher, or maybe a brilliant performance in a language competition, or just a practical use of the language we want to see? The criteria by which we measure progress depends entirely on us. We at LuckyKids International Summer Camp have focused our efforts on the practical part or we strive to help children to introduce their knowledge of English into use in their daily lives. Each child has an individual characteristic.Read More →

At LuckyKids International Camp the official language is English. Parents often ask how communication between the camp team and the children takes place when the children are beginners or do not speak the language well enough. The goal to communicate only in English with the children is to be able to create an artificial English environment in which the child has the opportunity to unlock the accumulated passive vocabulary or to create a directly active one. Strategy means that we purposefully strive to engage the child’s mind in English-speaking conversations for most of the day. Even with Bulgarian friends, the presence of 1 member of theRead More →

When it comes to incentive methods, we at LuckyKids children’s camp always choose positive methods of encouragement over negative ones. We are always “For” the reward. And yet we do it in an environment of collective communication. We often point to the actions of one child and reward him, as an example to others in order to spread the good “news” and to encourage and encourage everyone else to follow his example. Perhaps such a method is effective in a family environment when there are 2 or more children in it. In families with 1 child, such practices are difficult to apply. When we award,Read More →

LuckyKids International Camp welcomes an average of between 250 and 450 children a year. Each new season starts with new additions to the team so as to cover the growing number of visitors.

In this way we guarantee the same quality for both 10 and 60 children per shift. A colorful and colorful palette of campers visits us every year: by age gender interests place of residenceRead More →

Foreign language teaching strategies can relate to one of the following language areas: Phonetics or the science of sounds Morphology or the science of parts of speech Vocabulary or the science of words Syntax or the science of sentence construction Stylistics or the science of arranging words in beautiful and correct text.   Phonetic strategies We start with phonetics, because sounds are the first parts of a language that every child or beginner in the language gets acquainted with. Pronounce the sounds as they sound One of the most successful strategies so far is to learn the pronunciation of sounds as they sound in our dailyRead More →
