Learning a language is more than just memorizing vocabulary and grammar rules – it’s an adventure that exposes you to new cultures, enhances your cognitive abilities, and fosters a deeper connection with others.

What if I told you that you could learn a new language by taking a yoga class, cooking a meal, or learning about summer? Good news – you can! With our English Language Experience classes, you can take classes that fit your interests to help keep you engaged in language learning.

What is a Language Experience?

Language Experiences are both fun and effective. They are an immersive and experiential form of learning, allowing you to connect with others while progressing in your lifelong language-learning journey. You get to use all five senses while learning, which helps you retain your target language more effectively than traditional learning.

Here are some of the most popular English language experiences.
