Language & Activity Holidays

It's not all about sitting in a classroom...picking up a language is as much about getting out there and doing it as it is about learning verb tables.

Our Language & Activity courses are the perfect opportunity to combine language classes with a whole range of exciting activities, from salsa, cooking and wine tasting to surfing, diving, tennis, skiing and more. Your group language classes take place in the morning, leaving the afternoons free to indulge in a brand new activity or perhaps an old favourite. So whether you're a beginner or a pro, you can share your passion with others from across the globe and come back having learnt a lot more than just the language.
