Occupying the 10th floor of a beautiful modern building, our partner school is just a 15-minute walk from Hawaii's famous beaches! Stroll to Waikiki or use the bus with a stop right outside the school to visit the city. The language school features 17 classrooms, a computer lab, free Wi-Fi and a student lounge with free coffee and tea, a fridge, microwave and tables where you can have lunch. After class, you'll love the many shops, bars and restaurants right on your doorstep. You can also visit Magic Island (the “almost-island”), where you can work out or meet people from around the world while enjoying a good picnic!

Die schule war super. Einzig die aktivitäten waren nocht so toll. Weil du schule eher klein ist und sie zu wenig werbung für ihre aktivitäten machen, wurden die aktivitäten zu 90% abgesagt.

I really like the school because the teachers are very good and there are people from a lot of different nationalities. The curriculum is great because we have a lot of fun learning. It’s not boring and we don’t just read books. We learn by playing games and all the students participate in group assignments. It’s not too strict and the learning environment is exciting and energetic. Hawai is awesome, we can learn in a very nice atmosphere and we can do a lot of activities like surfing, tennis or going to the beach. The school activities program is also really good. The school is very well located, close to shops, bars, restaurants and beaches.

It was one of the most beautiful experiences in my life. I would never have thought I would travel alone abroad, so far away, to Hawaii. I was so scared.

But sometimes in life, unexpected things happen. And a unique opportunity arose. I was given the possibility to discover Honolulu, swim in Waikiki Beach and observe surfers. I visited heavenly beaches such as Lanikai, I danced traditional Hula, I participated in barbecue parties on the beach together with my new friends, I went to big Island, I tasted the wonderful Kona Café and I could try the famous Macadamia nuts coated with chocolate.

I could touch a dolphin at Sea Life Park. Watch beautiful sunsets. It was simply amazing! Lazying on the beach and admiring nature’s splendour is really breathtaking.

I can only say positive things about the school. It was very well located and my teacher Tad taught me not to be scared when speaking English in public. Thanks to her kindness and patience, she immediately made us feel comfortable.

Since I opted for a destination far from Spain, I was the only Spanish student at the school. So I could speak English all the time. My classmates were from Korea, Japan or Switzerland. I loved spending time with them, I learnt a lot about their cultures. I was glad I could meet so many lovely people.

As regards accommodation, I opted for a hotel in Waikiki, the Ohana West, and a single room with kitchenette. This was exactly what I wanted. Since there were other participants staying at the hotel, I could spend unforgettable moments with them. I could taste specialties cooked by my Swiss friends and accompany them to commercial centres.

The only thing I regret is not staying longer.

I recommend this experience to anyone, whether you are 20 or 40. It is never too late to learn!

ALOHA!

When people hear the word Hawaii, everybody thinks about things like Aloha, Houla dance, beaches, surf, Hawaii toast or bear. The reality is, Hawaii has much more to offer than that: it’s nice and multicultural to start with, but also has numerous beaches and incredible nature. I would have never thought that a language study trip would leave me such an impression. I can say that to date, this has been the best experience in my life. I was hosted, together with other students, by an amazing host family. They took me in as part of their family and I enjoyed the warm atmosphere. For me, ICC became like a continuation of my Hawaiian family. With time, all the students knew each other and teachers always did everything possible to make the learning atmosphere enjoyable. From time to time, we did weekend excursions to other islands. Hawaii has really a lot to offer in terms of activities and it is impossible to get bored. In another life, I would do exactly the same thing, except for the military service that I would do before travelling to Hawaii. That way, I could stay here for as long as I wish. Aloha!

Host family
Staying with a host family is without a doubt the best way of learning English and immersing yourself in Hawaiian culture. All of the host families are selected with care by our partner school in order to make you feel at home and practise your English daily with total confidence. Living around 45-60 minutes from the school, you'll stay in a single room with half-board provided.

Aloha Drive student house (minimum 4 weeks) Just a stone’s throw from Waikiki Beach, this is a fantastic option for students wishing to stay in a social environment – plus it’s got space to store your surfboards and bicycles! Stay in a single or double room (with bunk beds or a double bed, for students travelling together) in a 3-bedroom apartment. The common spaces you’ll share with your flatmates include a living room, kitchen and two bathrooms. The school is an easy 15-minute bus ride away with a stop just around the corner, or 25 minutes on foot. Free Wi-Fi and onsite laundry facilities are also included.

Island Colony Suites studios (minimum 4 weeks)
These comfortable studios are the perfect option if you want some independence during your stay in Hawaii. On the 7th floor of a modern building, you will be right in the middle of the nightlife, close to many shops and restaurants. The building is located 8 minutes away from the beach and each studio can accommodate 1 to 2 people. The studios are equipped with two king-size beds, a table, chairs, a kitchenette and a bathroom. All flats have Wi-Fi Internet facilities, air-conditioning and a TV. Bed linen and towels are provided.

In the morning, or in the afternoon, depending on your level and the type of course chosen, the dream becomes reality! Mythical beaches, perfect waves, the ever-present palm trees, clear waters and the gentle breezes... Hawaii has a language study trip to paradise in store for you! The "sheltered bay" (in Hawaiian) is very popular with tourists but it has lost nothing of its charm. The magnificent Ala Moana Beach, located very near to the school, is very much appreciated by the locals and is much quieter than the famous Waikiki Beach. Surfing, obviously, but also beach volleyball, hikes to the dormant volcanoes or the large waterfalls, BBQs or beach parties...the school proposes a wide range of activities and exciting excursions. The more courageous among you will even be able to swim with the dolphins and sharks! At the weekends, you wil be able to take advantage of the excellent bus transport system (one of the best in the United States) in order to travel the length and breadth of this heavenly island! You will always find, in Oahu, lush valleys and isolated coves where you can go to enjoy the spectacle...great photos and magnificent memories await you!
