LuckyKids is a camp in English – everything from morning till night is done by communicating in English. Children from different countries communicate in English, English is the language of communication with teachers in the language school, all activities outside the school are also carried out in English. Teachers are native English professional pedagogues, the afternoon and evening animators are Bulgarians fluent in the language. Both have a long-standing practice in working with children. In this language camp, accent is on learning while having fun. In the language school, children learn interestingly both the vocabulary needed for everyday life, as well as various social and applied sciences, mathematics, and so on. Reading comprehension is refined in different genres through selected texts, writing special tasks, as well as correct oral and written use of language, arrangement of sentences, etc.
This is achieved with provocative and stimulating cases and projects on which children work as a decision-making team. Thus, each of them actively engages, develops their creative talents, learns to discover the path to knowledge by themselves. Of course, everything is under the guidance of experienced teachers. The methods, the training material and the overall program are made up by proven professionals especially for LuckyKids.
