Make Your Language School Immersion Activities a Great Holiday!

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.

Relaxing and having fun with English is a valid target!

Many people have the old fashioned mindset with language learning that if it’s fun, it can’t be useful.

Everything we do proves them wrong!
