Our partner school is established in a modern building on the waterfront, in Seattle City Centre. Amenities include 19 classrooms equipped with interactive whiteboards and audio-visual facilities, a multimedia room with learning software, free-access computers and a library offering videos, audio books and learning materials. The student lounge is a place where students from all over the world can socialise and relax while having access to vending machines for snacks and drinks, refrigerators, microwave ovens and TV. Close to the school building, you will find the famous Pike Place Market, a popular attraction in the area, always full of life, and the very first Starbucks. Owing to its central location, the school is very well served by public transport and has countless cafés, restaurants and shops on its doorstep.

Die Sprachschule an sich war wirklich super! Die Lehrer und die anderen Mitarbeiter waren sehr motiviert, freundlich und hilfsbereit. Man hat das Gefühl sie machen den Beruf aus Freude und nicht "nur" um Geld zu verdienen. Veilfältige Lernmethoden wurden verwendet. Lernen hat große Freude bereitet. Die Räumlichkleiten waren modern, sehr sauber und liegen zentral in Downtown Seattle. Seattle als Stadt zählt meiner Meinung nach zu den schönsten der USA. Jedoch überdurchschnittlich viele Obdachlose. Unterricht sehr gut!

Host family
Host family accommodation offers the best solution for effective and active immersion in local culture. You will stay in a single or twin bedroom (shared with another student) and receive half board. This is a great opportunity to share the daily life and experiences of your host family while practising English on a daily basis.
You can use the extensive sports facilities provided on the university campus and even rent canoes and kayaks on site. The nearby Ravenna park, just a few minutes’ walk away, is ideal to play football or frisbee. The school will organise fun activities to allow you to have a good time with your friends, including baseball, hiking, canoeing, paintball and outings to vibrant, multifaceted Seattle. Alternatively, you can hop on the next train to explore cities like Vancouver or Portland, which are only 4 hours away. Wine lovers will enjoy tasting the locally grown vintages of this stunning wine-growing region. At the course centre, BBQ and movie nights, games and a number of other exciting activities will be scheduled in the evening, offering you a great opportunity to get to know the other international participants better!
