This exciting language course offers students the opportunity to ski or snowboard each afternoon following their morning German lessons.
Students attend 25 German lessons per week in the mornings before heading to a nearby ski slope with the school’s welfare workers for 2 to 3 hours of ski/snowboard lessons and practice.
On Saturdays, the students go on a full-day excursion to a bigger skiing resort in the Alps. Please observe that this excursion only takes place if enough students sign up for it. Otherwise, the participants will join the other students on the regular Saturday excursion.

I’ve had a great time in La Rochelle and would recommend it to younger students looking to improve their French. My host has been extremely helpful and kind. She cooked great food. The classes were enjoyable and challenging, and the teaching were very good. Overall, I’ve had a great time here in La Rochelle.
The Classes were good, and I felt that my French improved a lot from them. The teachers are all very helpful and nice. The activities were also very enjoyable even though they were a bit disorganised sometimes. The atmosphere is really great and that added to the great experience. Overall, I had such a great time. The staff are so fun and make all the activities funny and enjoyable and really add to the great experience.
I loved my experience at the school. The classes were very intensive, and the teachers were all good. My host family were amazing there food was really nice and I had such a good two weeks in their home. I enjoyed some of the activities and loved the group leaders. I appreciate the freedom at night.
I really enjoyed my time here. The host’s house was a great place to stay. The morning classes were very good. I moved to a harder class half way through the course as I had improved so much. My first class was less about speaking French and more about practicing comprehensions. It was much better in the other class where a lot more time was spent discussing different topics. The activities outside of the school were good including surfing and going camping and to a concert. We weren’t given a lot of time to do what we wanted to in town but we were kept entertained. It improved my spoken French.
I really enjoyed staying in La Rochelle. I think that I learned a lot if French and I really enjoyed that classes. I loved the activities and I think they really enhanced my experience. All of the teachers were lovely. My host was very nice. She had a lovely house and gave us enough independence. The only aspect that I didn’t enjoy was the food, but I never really liked French food anyways and I had to enhance myself in the culture.
I am delighted to give a review of Anne-Marie’s 6 week stay in Cádiz. She would tell you that it was the highlight of her TY year and a tremendous opportunity for her to mature and experience increased levels of independence. She learnt a considerable amount in Clic for the ...
