Close to Miami, Fort Lauderdale awaits you with many sights. Nowhere else you can experience the “American way of life” as well as here. Due to the large number of canals, Fort Lauderdale is often called the “Venice of America”. But there is more: Sawgrass Mills Mall Outlet, the Everglades or West Palm Beach. Apart from museums, beaches and nightlife, Fort Lauderdale overs a huge flea market and the tallest city building – “Las Olas River House”.

Language course

Language course English

Without the performance pressure from their home schools, students learn that communicating in the foreign language and application of the studied material is enjoyable. A class consists of up to 15 students which are thought at levels A1 to C1. Students take a placement exam on the first day of school in order to allocate them to the right class. Besides grammar, communication is focal point. Able and qualified members of staff conduct all classes. Course materials, the course book and a notepad are supplied.

An intensive course, which requires a visa, can be booked upon request with a minimum stay of 14 nights.
