A different holiday

More than a language course
The study of foreign languages ​​during the holiday offers the opportunity to live the joy of communication in a foreign language in an informal and friendly atmosphere in special centers for the study of foreign languages. Here there is no homework! Captivated by games and entertainment, spontaneously, you use all the knowledge they have and assimilate new ones through communication. Camp languages ​​are very effective, conditions are very close to mother tongue learning conditions.

Accommodation on campus
This type of accommodation is suitable for more independent students, who can socialize with other students of the same age. Campuses are also suitable for younger students (7-12 years), where they are supervised 24/7.

Accommodation in host families
If you wish to closely know other cultures and love the family atmosphere, then the host family accommodation is the right option for you. Families are carefully selected. Younger students are accompanied to school every day. Host families make you feel at home from the moment of arrival.

Free time
Leisure time is an important part of the course because it involves practicing the language. The goal is to combine fun with practicing English. As two teenagers are not always of the same opinion about what they want to do, there are groups who are considering everyone's interests - for example football team or theater group, additional excursions. Staff responsible for leisure activities cares for your safety and with pleasure will accept your ideas about new games, tours or other activities.

Differences in study process
The main goal of the course is learning of foreign language and, considering that foreign language camps are organized during the summer, our goal is to offer you a holiday full of fun.
