Laila Baur
Global Village, Honolulu
Duration: 13 weeks

My stay in Honolulu was amazing. From my arrival at the airport, when my host family welcomed me with open arms and offered me a Hawaian flower necklace. The comfortable house had a gorgeous view onto the city and the sea. Visits, beach, surfing, swimming with dolphins and excursions to other islands, these are a few examples of things I did during my free time. And of course, I also improved my English knowledge. The school has an ideal location and modern facilities, the teachers are nice and qualified and everything is very well organised.

Global Village, Honolulu
Duration: 9 weeks

My stay in Honolulu, an island that encourages discovery, relaxation and of course, surfing, went by far too quickly. The gorgeous beaches as well as the mild climate are really unique! Besides, I really liked the school, with its dedicated and committed teachers, its comfortable classrooms and the interesting activities programme. In such conditions, learning English becomes easy. Thanks for everything!

Global Village, Honolulu
Duration: 4 weeks

Our class had nice people from other countries and there were not too many Swiss people, which allow us to practice our English. Conversation class was very interesting and we liked that some of the class activities were done outside of class. We recommend other students to stay for at least two months in Hawaii and definitely travel to other islands. Our experience in Hawaii was fun and the surfing lessons were awesome!
