You can book a language study trip anytime and we’ll immediately start organizing for you. But please bear in mind that during peak season in particular, many language schools may already be fully booked. For that reason, we recommend that you book early. In addition, you can often also save on the airfares if you decide and book your trip well ahead of time.
During a language study trip, one is not only confined to learn the language at school, but there is also an opportunity to deal intensively with language skills in the leisure time. We recommend staying with a host family, because this results in a first hand experience of the culture. Simultaneously, you may thoroughly apply the language. Our partner schools are in regular contact with their host families and select them carefully. If you would prefer to live more independently, most of our schools offer alternative accommodation options, such as residences, hotels or apartments.
When comparing the different language schools also note the number of lessons per week and the duration of a single lesson. These vary depending on the school.
Our partner schools usually organize a varied leisure program with lots of culture and sports as well as fascinating excursions. Depending on the destination that you choose, different activities are offered. At the beach, surfing and diving often occur, while you can enjoy marvellous skiing or snowboarding in the mountains.
In today’s working world, language diplomas and certificates are an important verification of proficiency when applying for a job. Many of our partner schools offer examination preparation courses and achieve high success rates. As regards the best known Cambridge examinations, the most experienced teachers are entrusted with theses tasks ensuring thus a high-level preparation.
Normally, you take a language test on your first day to be assigned to a class with the appropriate performance level. In the event of Cambridge preparation courses, there is also a placement test available from our site. This means that nothing stands in the way of your successful English course. Would you like to test your language skills? Fill out our English online test or French online test and you will receive an immediate evaluation.
