Regardless of where you’re staying, we sure you won’t get bored as all of the houses offer many great facilities and sports grounds. Apart from the language courses your teamers organise fun activities, such as a night hike with torches, bonfires and trips to explore the region.

Even studying is fun here, with international teachers from England, Ireland or the USA.
