On the first day of school everyone will do a quick test, and will thereafter be placed with a group of classmates that has approximately the same knowledge as yourself. Every group consists of not more than 20 students.
It definitely will not feel like your regular school lessons at home – our teachers will take into account that you are in a country where the language is spoken. There will be a variation of group exercises and supervised activities, all together with your new friends from all over the world. Your homework might, for instance, be to tell your classmates about the dinner you and your host family had last night.
Absolutely, we try to place friends and siblings that want to live with the same host family together. Same applies for resort and campus stays. Up to four friends or siblings can live together. Let us know when you book if there is a special person you want to live with.
We do anything in our power for everyone to be able to go on the trip of their dreams. It is therefore important that you inform us if you have any illnesses, allergies or disabilities. With this information in mind we can find a solution that suits you the best. We have host families that have experience when it comes to diabetes and allergies etc. and who are well informed when it comes to medication, nutrition and the ways of living.
Since you are surrounded by the language everywhere you go – at home, in school and during your spare time, you will benefit from every minute. The things you learn in the class room is just one part of the education. You will also learn a lot when you practice the language after classes, when you spend time with your host family, when you go shopping or when buying ice-cream.
