The role of English in the modern world is obvious. It is the most important communication tool at the international level. All spheres of our life activities to some extent require knowledge of the English language. Therefore, learning English becomes more and more popular every year. At school, however, English remains only a school subject. Students just get marks for it. Learning the language is limited to memorizing words, grammar rules etc. Leaving school students cannot use English in its main function - communication.
Unlike school, much in the camp is a product of the joint activities of the counselors and children. The camp is a special environment: there is an environment of a foreign language. This means that most of the children, even those who were not fond of the language at school, will receive new motivation to learn it. The positive attitude to English developed in the camp will influence learning the language at school. Memorizing at the camp goes faster as all the channels of memorizing are involved: a kinesthetic channel, imaginative thinking, emotions and experiences.
The camp is a useful time passing in vacation time. One of the main things is that without thinking about the assessment of the answer children get rid of the fear of speaking the language. Participating in interesting events stimulates children to using English as a means of communication. Volunteers are the students of the Faculty of Foreign Languages , which provides the participants of the program with the opportunity to speak English the whole day.
