My name is Padraig Storey and I'm HR & Tutor Coordiation Service on behalf of Lingue Senza Frontiere, an Italian company leading in the field of education through entertainment (edutainment) of the English language through Summer Camps in the Italian schools for many years.
You may wish to have a look at our website: (www.linguesenzafrontiere.com) to discover more about us.
Our summer camps generally run for two weeks each.
How many weeks you do depends on both your availability and on the number of camps that we can offer.
Once you've arrived in Italy, you will follow a Training lasting 1 week in a beautiful resort setting by the sea. This Training is a professional educational update for teachers which enable them both to grow up from a professional point of view and at the same time to learn our educational program, as well as the style and the philosophy of our Company and of the Italian culture.
That's why the Training is held by professional Trainers who have previously worked in our Company for a long time.
After the Training, at the end of the week, the Tutor will receive the communication of his/her Summer Camp destination and will go directly at the Summer Camp location.
Our Summer Camps are held in Italian primary and middle schools, they usually, run from 8h30/9h00am to 4/4h30pm.
The children are aged 6 – 14. Each tutor has his/her own class of 12/15 children of a similar age group.
Our approach to language teaching is to use as many games, songs, and activities as possible. The focus of teaching is on cultivating enthusiasm for the English language, sharing culture and above all making sure the students have fun.
Knowledge of Italian is not required but can be useful. TEFL certification is not obligatory as long as you have experience working with children and are eager to learn some new skills.
The pay rate for camps is of 450 Euros per each two-week camp and so on if you decide to do more Summer Camps.
You will have no expenses to pay once you arrive here (food and lodgings are always included) except for your personal expenses. Training is unpaid, but as already mentioned above, food and accommodation will be always provided.
Accommodation at the Summer Camp is mostly with Italian host families but it can also be in b&b or in apartments.
We do not cover your transport to and from Italy, however, we do cover your transfers from Training location to your Summer Camp destination.
Please note that all applicants must be native English speakers and hold a current valid EU passport to work with LSF.
This is a unique opportunity to live in Italy as an Italian, you will be fully immersed in Italy’s wonderful lifestyle, develop a great relationship with your students and with host families and make some great new friends.
This year's Summer Camp is: "Welcome To Musicland". Do you like it? Hope so! :)
This year the Training Session will be the following ones:
From the 3rd to the 7th of June
(min. Summer Camps requested: 2, which means 4 working weeks in Italy back to back)
Total wage: € 900
(of course, if, after this period you wish to work in more Summer Camps you are more than welcome).

All the Best,
Lingue Senza Frontiere
