Unser Sprachcamp Allgäu Team

sind…

  •  qualifizierte und erfahrene Outdoor Trainer, die die entsprechende sicherheitstechnischen  Ausbildungen wie Klettertrainer oder Mountainleader haben und auch mit den nötigen Softskills ausgestattet sind wie Pädagogik, Outdoor Education, Erlebnispädagogik.
  • Native Speakers, die aus der ganzen Welt zu uns kommen, sei es England, Irland, Amerika oder Südafrika.
  • Language Assistants, die unseren Trainer/inn in einer 12er Gruppe unterstützen, damit die Teilnehmer genug Möglichkeiten haben, Englisch zu sprechen. Unsere Assistants sind auch Muttersprachler, meistens Studenten aus dem englischsprachigen Raum.

Ich wähle meine Outdoortrainer und Language Assistants sorgfältig aus – viele Sprachcamp Instructors kommen über mehrere Jahre zu uns, weil sie die kreative Art unseres Englischcamps sehr wertschätzen und auch als sinnvoll erleben.

Gav

I studied Sport and Leisure management (HND) at college which I passed with distinction. I was briefly self employed running a body zorbing business in 2013-14 however repair costs forced me to close and in 2015 I decided to pursue my passion for adventure sports and move to the French Alpes. At first I worked in hospitality and only the winter season but in 2018 I was able to secure full time work as Maintenace/Driver in St Gervais, near Chamonix. Here I took my passion for the mountains to the next level. Not only was I mountain biking, snowboarding and rock climbing more than ever, I was also surrounded by Les Fiz, Les Arravis and Le Mont Blanc Massif. Within three years I had stood on top of these ranges, the highlight being Mont Blanc, which we summited in 2020. Covid changing our plans for 2021, myself and my partner returned to Northern Ireland.
