Language PLUS Discover the city: Language courses abroad
English in the City
The programme includes two modules:
- The academic teaching of the English language is done in the morning and consists of 20 lessons per week. It deals with grammar and vocabulary, but also prepares the students for their “field mission”, which will take place in the afternoon.
- The subject dealt with during the class (one set theme per week) is then treated in-depth through visits, group work or lectures on the subject given by external specialists.
By applying the skills acquired in the morning during the class in the afternoon in a relaxed atmosphere, you will gain proficiency and complement your academic knowledge with plenty of genuine phrases and vocabulary related to the culture and the history of the place.
The “English in the City” programme is offered in the following destinations:
