Sabbatical year, Gap Year, Long stay: Language PLUS Music and Dance
Our new programme gives you the chance to discover a language through music or dance. These courses are for the music lovers out there!
If you're gifted with a "musical ear", it may be easier for you to learn a foreign language. Our new Language PLUS music programme offers the opportunity to combine language courses with music, singing or dancing.
As a global language, music opens a door to other cultures. This concept fits in closely with the idea of a foreign language, which also gives access to another world. Dance, play an instrument or sing along, all while turning language learning into a fun and dynamic experience!
Students will work together as they make music, a vital aspect of the language programme. Technical terms and musical expressions will also be taught during the course. The Language PLUS Music &language PLUS dance programmes paves your way to a new experience of complete immersion in music and a foreign language, which leads to lasting progress.
