Lisbon as seen from a Portuguese point of view…

Terreiro do PaçoBefore you ask if this article was written by a Portuguese person, yes, it was. Is it still going to be impartial? Well, I will try to be!

To start with, Lisbon is the capital of Portugal and one of the few European capitals that can be proud of having the sea just a couple of minutes away. It is consequently the most populous city in Portugal, offers lots of things to do and is definitely worth visiting!

Exploring Germany, Wolfsburg – The city of cars

wolfsburg2The first question that comes into mind when you hear the word Wolfsburg is very often “where is that?” Located in Lower-Saxony and being home to 125,000 people, this northern German city is not what you would call a metropolis. Yet, when people hear that this is the place where one of the biggest car manufacturers – Volkswagen – is headquartered, their interest is awakened very quickly. Even though you may be a little sceptical at first, (especially with the recent VW emissions scandal!) this city is definitely worth a visit.

15 different languages for one MARVELous creature

The importance of understanding other languages needs no explanation, but even in the most extreme fictional universe language plays an important part for all characters and therefore needs careful consideration by all the writers and producers of major films.

For the majority of Marvel’s blockbuster 2014 film Gardians of the Galaxy one of the main characters, a sentient tree-like creature called Groot has just one line: “I AM GROOT”. This simple phrase for this now popular character has since become a famous pop-culture reference.

Lyon travel bucket list

topLyonIf you are looking for a French city which can definitively compete with the lovely capital city that Paris is, I think you should opt for the beautiful and affordable – but no quality loss – Lyon!

More than simply listing the most famous monuments or places from the town, I thought about sharing my very own personal travel bucket list, with all of my favourites to help you to discover other sides of the city.

Discovering Cusco!

Cusco1If you decide to go to Peru you cannot miss a trip to the ancient capital of the Inca Empire Cusco (3,400m above sea level!), also named Qosqo in Quechua which means “the belly button of the world”.

Having my roots in this wonderful city I can’t recommend Cusco enough as a place to learn Spanish. Not only the setting in the middle of the mystical Andes is incredible but also the local people are very friendly and open to visitors.

Who attends our language courses?

One of the things that I love most about this job is the range of people we get to speak with. This morning I spoke with a 16 year old girl who wanted to take a summer course in France, and the next phone call was from an 80 year old gentleman who wants to take an Italian Club 50+ course in the autumn! We really do offer courses suitable for everyone!

Most of our students tend to be aged 20-30 years old, but this varies from location to location and also depends on the time of year (during the summer months the average age drops slightly).

Language courses for older students

club50coupleMost students over 50 years of age are happy to join our normal language courses worldwide, at any of our schools, as the programmes are intended for adults of all ages. Indeed, at most of our schools a significant number of the students are often in their forties, fifties and over. This is especially true for locations that are more preferred by the older student, including Aix en Provence in France and Sorrento in Italy.

Some students aged 50 and above prefer to have their language classes and activities exclusively with students of a similar age. It is for these students that we offer our Club 50+ courses.
