To a great many people the language course is the first stay abroad without parents as travelling companions. It is a very exciting, fun-filled and rewarding time which will also be a great merit later in life.
Meet and Greet
Upon arrival at the airport your students will be met by STS staff, who will make sure that your students get's to the awaiting transfer bus safely. Knowing that STS will take care of your group as soon as they have passed security is a great comfort.
When your students arrive in the course town they will be met by our local STS manager. We are there when your students meet their host families for the first time making sure that everything runs smooth. Since all of your students receive information of their host family before they leave, they may already have established contact with them.
Efficient & tailor-made teaching
All teaching is done in small groups of 10-15 students in each group. We will help your students find a course that suits them best. During the first day of school your students will go through a diagnostic language test. Based upon their previous knowledge they will be placed in a group of students on the right level. The advantage of studying a language in the country where it is spoken is that the teachers may use this fact by giving work assignments like interviewing the host family, reading youth magazines, making field trips and such.
Active free time
The students free time is filled with activities and STS always arrange something fun after the lessons, such as an excursion, sunbathing, a tournament or shopping tour. In the evening your students can socialise and for instance go to the STS disco together. Some students will also spend many wonderful hours on the beach where they can swim and enjoy the sunshine and play beach games and fun activities. You will find that many students rate the visit to the metropolitan city as the highlight of the language course. Regardless of what course town you choose, you will visit a big city. In addition to the excursions and activities that are included in the price of the language course, you can also book further arrangements, from laser games and bannaboating to visits to cathedrals.
