Through experiential language-learning methods and practice, as well as cultural immersion in the country, the course aims to improve fluency and accuracy in the language chosen. You will gain first-hand experience in a safe and supportive environment before observing, absorbing, and activating authentic communication practices directly on the spot, with the help of our local professional tutors. The course maintains an appropriate balance of grammar topics and conversational activities. Our conversation labs and games will make learning easier, faster, more stimulating, and more enjoyable for you, and you will enjoy our roleplay simulations.
