Study + Visa: Language Course
You usually attend an intensive language course before or during the Internship Programs. If your language level is already intermediate level the course can be waivered and the cost deducted from the program fee. These language classes consists of:
- According to the country destination you have chosen you will study 40 hours of classes (2 to 4 weeks in the mornings for example from 9 am to 12:30 pm or similar, Monday to Friday) or in private language classes according to the level you test into. The language classes and their characteristics will be clearly described on your itinerary. There are a maximum of 8 students in each class, average 5 or fewer.
- Cultural and Social Activities Program, which is aimed at improving your knowledge of the city itself (through our walking tours and visits to world-famous art museums, etc.). Some programs also involve evenings, where you can enjoy food and typical drink, whilst making friends with other students from the school. Some events are free and others have a small charge.
