Group Work Experience Trips

Any linguist will tell you that the most beneficial way to learn a language is in the country where it is spoken. Of course the formal learning of a language is important but in order to get the most out of your studies you have to put the theory into practice by actually conversing with native speakers of the language.

Many of our students tell us that they start off the week lacking in confidence and are nervous that they will be unable to understand the locals due to the speed of their speech. By the end of the trip all the nerves and self-doubt have disappeared and students say they are able to converse naturally and confidently.

Our Work Experience programme aims to provide students with all the relevant opportunities in order to benefit from the experience in terms of their language skills. Students tell us that they develop independence, a sense of responsibility and they they enjoy making new friends and exploring the local culture.

Students will have the opportunity to:

  • Improve their language skills
  • Achieve total immersion in the language
  • Enhance university and job applications
  • Gain confidence and independence
  • Meet new friends and socialise
  • Experience the local culture


Our students tell us that they come back from their trips feeling more inspired, motivated and enthusiastic about learning their language, and many go on to study languages at university.
