Fill your mornings with language learning which is known to increase memory capability and deepen cultural understanding. Upon arrival, you will take an aptitude test to see which level your language level currently stands and where we can best improve it in the upcoming weeks. Our courses are held in very small classes to ensure an individualised and personalised learning approach.
Sports foster positive group dynamic, confidence and teamwork. Some of our exciting sport activities include: dancing, climbing, orienteering (OL), tennis, general team ball sports, bubble soccer, chess and stand-up paddle boarding (SUP), just to name a few.
In the afternoon you will have the opportunity to learn all media techniques from the top of the US Media radio commentators and become a radio host, guest, or a reporter!

In between and at the end of the afternoon sessions, you will have free time followed-up by an evening of our themed Dinner & Culture Nights which involves: BBQ, dine-out options, community games, team competitions, trivia, karaoke and more.
