Adventurers should certainly stop in Saint-Malo when visiting France. This former pirate town on the French Atlantic coasts waits to be conquered. The different types of architecture fascinate young and old alike. The narrow streets are great for shopping or just having a stroll. The hospitality of the French makes this language holiday unforgettable. The activity programme includes activities such as day trips, sports activities or relaxing on the Atlantic coast beaches. The highlight of the trip is the overnight stay in Paris.

Language course

Language course French

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 (possible to take the test online in advance). 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.

Standard course: additional 5 lessons of 45 min each per week
Mini Group Course: additional 5 lessons of 45 min each per week in a group of max. 5 students
DELF Preparation Course: 16 lessons of 45 min each per week in a group of max. 5 students

Journey

Travel to and from the holiday location by coach

The journey is undertaken as an overnight coach trip in modern coaches. All journeys comply with the specified driving and rest periods; the coach companies are carefully selected and we have been working with them for many years. The supervision of the students by our teamers starts at the departure location where the student gets on the coach.
The departure points will not exceed 30 kilometers from the city (namend in the advertising), however these are limited by date block and minimum bookings. All departure informations are determind at the latest 10 days before hunt and can be call up in the “Mein GO Reiseportal.”

Accommodation

Accommodation – Homestay

The best way to get to know the culture and language of a country is to stay with a host family. Here you can apply your newly learnt skills and practice your communication skills. You normally stay in rooms of two to four. The host families are carefully checked and selected.

Board

Full board in the homestay

The typical breakfast and dinner are normally eaten with the host family. The students either receive a packed lunch or prepare it themselves. Based on experience, breakfast and dinner times provide the students with an excellent opportunity to enhance their communication skills and tell the host family about their day.

Supervision

Supervised language holiday

The supervision starts when the student boards the coach. The teamers are normally at least 20 years old and are first point of contact for our students 24/7. The teamers are trained particularly for their tasks as teamers. Prior to their fist job with us, they need to complete the seminar designed by pedagogic staff. The teamers are responsible for the daily leisure time activity programme, the trips, evening activities and all other activities.
