Our learning and teaching

We teach languages outside of a conventional classroom. Articulate uses a project-based approach to teaching and we love to take learning into the great outdoors. We use digital media and adventure sport to bring language learning to life. So whether campers are making an animation in Spanish or taking an archery class in German, they are having fun while learning in a meaningful way.

We believe in high-quality, personalised tuition and care. That is why our language classes and camps are always small and we have a 1:5 mentor to camper ratio. We have an international team of staff who ensure that there is an authentic multilingual and multicultural flare to everything we do.

Taking learning out of the classroom and into the outdoors provides our campers with amazing memories, builds their confidence and they leave our camps having successfully learned a foreign language and wanting to learn even more. The feedback from campers and their parents for our learning and teaching has been nothing but positive and we have exceptionally high standards. We truly love sharing our passion for languages.

Who are we?

Articulate was founded by Kara Nisbet and Thomas Reichhart who epitomise the international feel of their camps. Kara is from Ayrshire in the south-west of Scotland and Thomas is from Bavaria in southern Germany. They met while studying in Spain and their friendship grew through a love for sharing their languages and experiencing other cultures.

After gaining teaching qualifications and experience in the summer camp world, they founded Articulate Language Camps in 2012. It is now a successful, family-run business based in central Scotland. Their enthusiasm, commitment and love for languages is evident in all their camps and they whole-heartedly believe that language learning is easier when it’s meaningful and fun.

They are joined by a great team of teachers and native speakers of our camp languages who have years of experience working on language camps across Europe. Everyone is truly passionate about helping the world to communicate through foreign languages.

We can’t wait to meet you soon on one of our programmes.
