Paese fantastico, soggiorno indimenticabile. Città non bellissima perché veramente molto commerciale, forse da Honolulu mi aspettavo qualcosa di più. Basta però uscire appena fuori dalla città per trovare paesaggi incredibili Insegnanti e responsabili sempre molto disponibili e simpatici. Atmosfera bellissima e dinamica grazie a cui è stato possibile divertirsi sempre nonostante gli argomenti usati come "scusa" per intavolare discussioni non fossero sempre proprio entusiasmanti... Famiglia molto ospitale e simpatica con cui è stato sempre molto divertente interagire e discutere. Unica pecca la distanza dal centro, causata però unicamente dalla inefficienza dei bus

Qu’il y ait beaucoup de suisses ne me dérange pas tant qu’il y en a de chaque partie de la Suisse. Cependant, durant la moitié de mon séjour, il n’ y avait presque que des suisse allemands qui parlaient souvent leur langue. De plus, la règle concernant le « only English » avec les 25 dollars n’a pas été appliquée. En effet, dans ma classe de Cambridge, deux suisses allemandes parlaient suisse allemand fréquemment malgré ma demande de ne parler qu’anglais au moins dans l'école. Professeurs super. Nous avons vraiment été bien préparés pour le CAE. Toujours concernant le suisse allemand, j’aurai apprécié un peu plus de sévérité des professeurs / de l’école vis-à-vis de la règle « only English ». Au début, nous étions 4 dans la collocation mais ensuite seulement 2. Une collocation remplie est plus animée et permet de rencontrer différentes personnes. Malheureusement, l'école n’a pas organisé de voyage sur d’autres îles durant mon séjour. N’ayant pas 21 ans et par conséquent ne pouvant pas louer de voiture, une visite avec l’école m'aurait été utile pour découvrir les autres îles d’Hawaii.

« Oui. D’abord grâce aux cours suivis. Ensuite, dans les activités que j’ai pu faire à Hawaii. Par exemple, je me suis inscrite dans un crossfit où je m’y rendais 3-4 fois par semaine et où j’ai rencontré des américains avec qui j’ai pu mettre en pratique mon anglais et qui sont maintenant des amis.Je pense que pour apprendre l’anglais courant, les cours normaux sont plus adaptés. Cependant, les cours Cambridge m’ont été très utiles.Suivre d’abord les cours normaux avant les cours Cambridge a été nécessaire pour me mettre dans le bain de l’anglais. »
School highlights
« Le fait que l'école soit petite et que les professeurs connaissent tous les élèves. La bonne humeur au sein de l’école.L’engagement et l’investissement des professeurs : on ressent qu’ils souhaitent vraiment que l’on progresse et/ou font tout pour que l’on passe l’examen. »

Hawaii ist einfach ein Traum! Leider eine sehr unprofessionelle und schlechts Schule im Vergleich zu den anderen besuchten Sprachschulen.Vor allem der Cambridge Kurs war schlecht organisiert und sage und schreibe 3 Levels (FCE-CAE-CPE) in einer Klasse!! Leider viele Kakerlaken!!Ein wenig altbacken und modrig. Jerry Lee war einfach nur ein fantastischer aktivitäten Manager!!Sehr verantwortungsbewusst und freundlich.Leider hat die Schule so wie ich nach meiner Abreise gehört habe die begleiteten Aktivitäten eingestellt.

I really like the school because the teachers are very good and there are people from a lot of different nationalities. The curriculum is great because we have a lot of fun learning. It’s not boring and we don’t just read books. We learn by playing games and all the students participate in group assignments. It’s not too strict and the learning environment is exciting and energetic. Hawai is awesome, we can learn in a very nice atmosphere and we can do a lot of activities like surfing, tennis or going to the beach. The school activities program is also really good. The school is very well located, close to shops, bars, restaurants and beaches.

It was one of the most beautiful experiences in my life. I would never have thought I would travel alone abroad, so far away, to Hawaii. I was so scared.

But sometimes in life, unexpected things happen. And a unique opportunity arose. I was given the possibility to discover Honolulu, swim in Waikiki Beach and observe surfers. I visited heavenly beaches such as Lanikai, I danced traditional Hula, I participated in barbecue parties on the beach together with my new friends, I went to big Island, I tasted the wonderful Kona Café and I could try the famous Macadamia nuts coated with chocolate.

I could touch a dolphin at Sea Life Park. Watch beautiful sunsets. It was simply amazing! Lazying on the beach and admiring nature’s splendour is really breathtaking.

I can only say positive things about the school. It was very well located and my teacher Tad taught me not to be scared when speaking English in public. Thanks to her kindness and patience, she immediately made us feel comfortable.

Since I opted for a destination far from Spain, I was the only Spanish student at the school. So I could speak English all the time. My classmates were from Korea, Japan or Switzerland. I loved spending time with them, I learnt a lot about their cultures. I was glad I could meet so many lovely people.

As regards accommodation, I opted for a hotel in Waikiki, the Ohana West, and a single room with kitchenette. This was exactly what I wanted. Since there were other participants staying at the hotel, I could spend unforgettable moments with them. I could taste specialties cooked by my Swiss friends and accompany them to commercial centres.

The only thing I regret is not staying longer.

I recommend this experience to anyone, whether you are 20 or 40. It is never too late to learn!

ALOHA!

When people hear the word Hawaii, everybody thinks about things like Aloha, Houla dance, beaches, surf, Hawaii toast or bear. The reality is, Hawaii has much more to offer than that: it’s nice and multicultural to start with, but also has numerous beaches and incredible nature. I would have never thought that a language study trip would leave me such an impression. I can say that to date, this has been the best experience in my life. I was hosted, together with other students, by an amazing host family. They took me in as part of their family and I enjoyed the warm atmosphere. For me, ICC became like a continuation of my Hawaiian family. With time, all the students knew each other and teachers always did everything possible to make the learning atmosphere enjoyable. From time to time, we did weekend excursions to other islands. Hawaii has really a lot to offer in terms of activities and it is impossible to get bored. In another life, I would do exactly the same thing, except for the military service that I would do before travelling to Hawaii. That way, I could stay here for as long as I wish. Aloha!

Host family
Staying with a host family is without a doubt the best way of learning English and immersing yourself in Hawaiian culture. All of the host families are selected with care by our partner school in order to make you feel at home and practise your English daily with total confidence. Living around 45-60 minutes from the school, you'll stay in a single room with half-board provided.

Aloha Drive student house (minimum 4 weeks)
Just a stone’s throw from Waikiki Beach, this is a fantastic option for students wishing to stay in a social environment – plus it’s got space to store your surfboards and bicycles! Stay in a single or double room (with bunk beds or a double bed, for students travelling together) in a 3-bedroom apartment. The common areas you’ll share with your flatmates include a living room, kitchen and two bathrooms. The school is an easy 15-minute bus ride away or 25 minutes on foot. Free Wi-Fi and onsite laundry facilities are also included.

Waikiki Vista residence
This modern residence is located a 15-minute walk from our partner school ICC Hawaii and from the famous Waikiki Beach! Each single and twin room features a bathroom and a kitchenette, but you’ll also have access to the large cooking area in the student lounge. Bed linen and towels are provided, and cleaning service, free Wi-Fi and air-conditioning are included. In addition to 24h security, the residence boasts modern amenities, coin-operated laundry facilities and an on-site café and restaurant where to meet with other students.

The world’s most beautiful beaches, perfect waves, palm trees, crystal clear water and the gentle trade winds… a trip to Hawaii is a journey to paradise! Honolulu, or “sheltered harbour” in Hawaiian, hasn’t lost one bit of its charm in spite of being a tourist hotspot. The wonderful Ala Moana Beach, just a stone’s throw from the school, is a local favourite and much quieter than nearby Waikiki. The school organises exciting activities like surfing, beach volleyball and hikes to the inactive volcanoes and massive waterfalls, while the bravest students can even try swimming with sharks or dolphins! Weekends are perfect for exploring the island by bus. Here in Oahu, you’ll find lush valleys and sunny cliffs and coves that will take your breath away… the perfect opportunity to take pictures and make memories!
