Leisure

Much more than language classes

One of the main advantages of studying abroad is that you can practise the language you are studying on a daily basis, while enjoying a huge range of activities. Extra-curricular activities create a relaxed and motivating environment in which to meet other students and use your skills in an authentic setting. This is the reason why schools offer diverse cultural, social and sporting leisure options in addition to the quality courses that have built their reputation.

100% sport

During your trip, you can combine language study with your favourite sports. Enjoy a football match in Barcelona's Camp Nou Stadium or join a game on the beach in Salvador da Bahia. Chill out at a surfing competition in Biarritz or strap in for the Grand Prix in Belgium. Catch an ice hockey match in Québec, Canada, or get your cowbells out for FIS World Cup skiing events in the Swiss Alps. Explore the turquoise waters in Fort-de-France or Bocas del Toro, try your hand at eusko pilota in San Sebastián... you are spoilt for choice!

100% culture

From the misty vestiges of Machu Picchu in Peru to the heights of Tapei 101 in Taiwan, from the Mayan temples of Mexico to the shopping temples of Tokyo, from the collections of the Musée du Louvre in Paris to the open-air East Side Gallery in Berlin, from the Rio de Janeiro Carnival to the Street Parade in Zurich, the world is a wonderful place.
 
For some, walking the Great Wall of China is a spiritual experience. For others, savouring a delicious dish of fresh pasta in a charming wine-growing village in Italy has the same effect. Chill out in a traditional coffee shop in Vienna or explore Costa Rica’s coffee bean plantations. One thing is for sure: immersing yourself in the culture of the country you’re visiting will help you understand other essential dimensions of the language you’re studying.

100% adventure

Travelling abroad and sharing this experience with other students from throughout the world is a unique life experience that will stay with you forever. Explore a different country, get beneath the surface of its culture and meet tons of new people of all ages and nationalities.
 
Nothing is more rewarding than getting out there and striking a conversation with locals, hearing them talk and listening to their stories. Or making friends with international students and exploring one of the world’s most exciting cities together. This is the fastest way to improve your language skills and live your trip to the full. After your language course in Paris, Berlin, Madrid or Florence, you will return home with friends from the four corners of the globe.

TESTIMONIALS

Hannelore V.

Bournemouth is a pleasant city with a nice beach, lots of sports facilities and beautiful gardens. My two-weeks stay was a great experience. I took classes at Kings. This school has a very good reputation and its teaching staff is very professional and friendly. Here I was able to practise my English with native speakers. I find it important to use my English in real-life situations since the language is becoming increasingly important internationally and in interdisciplinary contexts. I stayed with a British host family, something I really recommend. In retrospect, I would even recommend attending a summer school at a younger age, for instance, during one's last high-school year. ESL really helped me along in my decision-making and I gained great confidence in this organization. I had a most unforgettable experience and would not hesitate repeating it!

This has been such an incredible new experience for me… it’s surpassed my expectations and I’m hardly ever home! I’m really liking the course at St. Giles International. My teacher is pretty energetic which is really nice because it livens up the class and helps you feel less embarrassed to speak up.

New York offers so many cultural and entertainment options. I participate in as many of the activities organised by the school as I can; for example, we went to the Atlanta Braves vs. New York Mets baseball game, and I thought it was something interesting and different.

I wanted to study here at Kings to improve not only my level of general English, but also my knowledge of legal English. Holding a degree both in business administration and management and in law, I believe that studying here is an opportunity to further my legal career.

On one hand, during the classes we learned a considerable amount of new terms and vocabulary, which are clearly important from many points of view: from the perspective of someone seeking to pass a specific exam or to someone who simply wishes to improve their CV or learn general English for daily life.

On the other hand, the shared apartments that belong to Kings are just a few minutes away and the perfect convenience for someone interested in studying here. In addition to its privileged nearby location and having every necessary service, the living spaces are new and perfectly equipped for daily use.
