Studying with Eurocentres is like the ultimate vacation—instead of being an ordinary tourist, you get to completely immerse yourself in the culture you’re visiting. If you’ve ever wanted to learn a new language, this is the most fun and effective way to do it.
After all, the best way to become fluent in a language is to live in a city where it’s spoken. That way, you get to mingle with locals and use what you’ve learned in everyday situations. As a Eurocentres student, you get to live with a host family and have them show you around. After classes, you can sign up for a whole bunch of cultural activities, too. For example, Eurocentres Paris organizes wine tastings, cooking classes, museum visits, day trips to Versailles, Reims and Epernay, and longer excursions to Le Mont St. Michel and Loire Châteaux.
On top of that, you’ll meet and make friends with people from all over the world. If you regret passing up on the chance to do an international exchange program during your college days, or want to relive the experience all over again, this is the way to go. After all, the teachers at Eurocentres believe that you’re never too old to learn a new language. So, while students are predominantly in their early twenties, there’s a good number of people in their thirties and even a couple of senior citizens in the mix.
Eurocentres offers courses in German, Italian, Spanish, Japanese, Russian, and French. You can choose to study for any length of time, from two weeks to up to a year, depending on the course you choose. And next year, they’re giving away a two-week language stay in Paris. If you’re interested, you can sign up for the promotion online until January 16, 2018.
