Your Language School immersion activities really matter!

No one wants to feel the disappointment of an unfulfilling holiday.  Your holiday time is precious. It should be filled with pleasurable, interesting experiences.

But the range of activities offered by a language school should be more than entertainment.

Language School immersion activities must have demonstrable educational targets intertwined throughout the holiday course. If one of the goals is relaxing, we’ll let you know.

Otherwise, you’ll be learning English.
