As the language training is not for absolute beginners, participants are supposed to have some knowledge of German, at least on a level that ensures daily communication (A2). Participants should also be willing to communicate with each other during the whole project in German language only. This part of the concept is important in order to allow a big step in acquiring the language.There is an extra-fee of 160,00 EUR to be paid upon arrival (or to be transferred in advance). A certificate for participating in the language-course will be given at the end of the camp.
