We all know that the best way to learn a language is the language immersion in homestay in a foreign country. We live in a globalized world, and learning languages is essential today: to speak foreign languages is the best way to enter into the working world.
The younger ones are the most capable to learn foreign languages, and they are able to assimilate innovations and cultural changes, much more than adults. Therefore, travel and immersion trips are so important in the development of children and adolescents.
Summer is great opportunity to live an intense language experience, and this is what we propose today.
Immersion with host family in Ireland in July:
Aprende Inglés en Irlanda is one of our partner companies, and was born with the aim of providing young students, from 9 to 16 years old, the opportunity to learn English, immersed in an Irish family for a period fron 2 weeks to one month.
At the same time the young student is enjoying summer holidays, he will improve is English communication skills, far away from school, with a new and real motivation.
Program coordinators, , Norah Ezcurra and Bébhinn Coady, met in this same context more than 15 years ago.
To carry out this project, they have chosen the peaceful County of Donegal, a beautiful rural setting located northwest of Ireland where, encouraged by the friendliness of its people, the young student can become familiar with the customs of the area, while developing language skills .
Bébhinn Coady lives close to the host families accommodations and she is personally responsible for selecting families. Bébhinn is a mother, and she organizes artistic and cultural activities for kids. She is very involved in her community and civic centers in the area. She is responsible for assigning families with children of similar age, tastes and interests. The aim of this program is to achieve a quick and pleasant environment adaptation, which motivates communication in English.
No more than one student will stay in the same house and families will find themselves sufficiently separated from one another, in order to prevent young students to contact other people from the same country.
Norah and Andoni will travel from Spain with the students accompanying them at all times, until the presentation with their host families. From day one, they are in contact with the students to guaranty their well being and provide them security. To do so, unlike other programs, they will stayi in the area, being fully available and will visit the students on a weekly basis.
The flight departs from Santander or Bilbao (to be determined).
