Long term study in immersion: Leisure activities

One of the interests of learning a language abroad resides in the immediate practice of the studied subject. The extra-curricular activities proposed by the schools offer a relaxed and motivating climate which favours exchanges and contacts. For this reason, the schools propose to you, beside quality courses which have made their reputation, attractive cultural and sports activities. According to the destination, in this way, you will be able to discover diving in Australia, tear down the slopes in Canada, strut about Berlin, visit the Alhambra in Granada, go shopping in Milan or go out with friends to a London pub. The various activities are partially included in the price of the courses. The excursions are at an extra charge when they involve a journey (train, bus) or entrance fees (shows, theatre, etc.).

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 Nice. Chill out at a surfing competition in Biarritz or strap in for the Grand Prix in France. 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 Panama... 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 Seville, 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 Rome, you will return home with friends from the four corners of the globe.
