... is not a mere leisure time occupation, but a language training in real communication. It is conducive to practice new acquired language structures up to a confident mastery and active application. It helps to overcome the frequent fear of speaking, to automate listening comprehension and speaking and enables the student to use the language competently. In a particularly relaxed and efficient way this is achieved during meals and activities joint with the language trainer and maybe other German or international participants.
As a language trainer I adapt my speaking to the student's level of understanding, talk to him or her and encourage him to speak, to express his opinion, impression or knowledge about the current topic. If possible, I try to start from his or her special areas of interest.
The current offer of the Active+Creative Programme is:
- Plywood fretwork (crafted by mechanical fret saw) using traditional motives/ templates from the Ore Mountains (Erzgebirge)
- Cookery or Bakery of German and international dishes
- Diverse parlour and board games
- Shorter or longer walks and hikes, visits to museums, city/castle... tours, visit of evening lectures and local events of the season.
Why should the Language Guesthouse restrict its creative programme to language learners? Recreation time is the perfect occasion to discover your creative talent!
In the 2010 season the Language Guesthouse has started a creative program for all those, who decide to become our guests not because of the German language, but only to recreate their body and mind at our beautiful region.
Under careful guidance you learn how to make aesthetic and decorative
wooden items using traditional motives from the Ore Mountains (Erzgebirge):
Table mats, candleholders, window hangings, lanterns, and the well known German candle arches and Christmas pyramids - the programme will be extended by and by.
Crafts are made of plywood manually or using a mechanical fret saw and
variegated in colours with acrylic paint.
The fretsaw technique is a wonderful and creative hobby, which provides a wide range of creative possibilities for beginners and masters, for people with cautious and courageous disposition. The figuration of very simple shapes is possible likewise the crafting of delicate preciosities. Chances are that this captivating hobby won't release you any more after you have tasted blood.
Holidaymakers and vacationers can book their Creative Program together with their accommodation. German language skills of at least level A1 are required. For information about costs have a look into the menu "courses and prices"
