We partner with internationally accredited language schools where students attend intensive classes held by professional and qualified teachers. Actively engaged with a focus on improving fluency, our tours challenge students giving them the opportunity to speak with the locals that may include cultural activities with visits to markets, museums, ancient ruins and iconic landmarks.
How Can We Help
With over four decades working with trusted international partners, we have built our reputation on organising high quality and diverse learning opportunities for special interest groups, managing all the travel requirements, logistics and intricacies that are involved in ensuring a successful tour.
Our aim is to make the entire process as stress free as possible, from the early planning stages, through to the administration and execution of the actual tour. We provide authenticity, and we trust in our sources for inspiration and advice, ensuring each tour is meticulously planned and organised, reducing risk and worry, as well as achieving tour objectives on any budget. Schools across Australia have chosen us time and again to organise their international educational tours. We consistently receive exceptional feedback from teachers, parents and students.
We’re here to help.
With our French language tours, we collaborate with schools in Paris, Lyon and the Cote d’Azur to make sure students gain an appreciation of France’s culture, art, architecture, history and so much more. Our itineraries are customised so that students learn as much as possible by working closely on the specific educational needs and learning outcomes. France is also a great destination to combine a language tour with history and art to broaden the scope and appeal of an educational tour.
Highlights may include:
- Cultural insights in Paris that may include visits to the Jardin de Tuileries, la Grande Roue, Musée de L’Orangerie, Musée d’Orsay, Arc de Triomphe and Atelier des Lumières Digital Art Gallery.
- Scavenger hunts in the Louvre museum, playing pétanque on the banks of the River Seine and window shopping along the Champs Elysées.
- In Lyon, known as “le capital mondial de la gastronomie” visit the traditional restaurant Bouchons Lyonnais and be immersed in the French language in lessons with high school students and cultural visits to the Lyon markets, the Basilique St Jean and the roofs of Fourvière
- Situated at Cap D’Ail on the Mediterranean coast, intensive language classes in the morning are followed with a variety of afternoon excursions and activities which may include a visit to the Chagall Museum and the old town of Nice; a visit to the markets in the Italian town of Ventimiglia; the Musée Picasso in the picture perfect seaside resort of Antibes, or an excursion to Eze village and parfumerie Fragonard.
Designed to match the various language level and knowledge of students, interactive classes are linked to daily themes such as food, film and history in accredited language schools based in Rome and Tuscany. Experiencing authentic cultural activities and conversing with locals helps with students’ confidence and fluency.
Highlights may include:
- Connect food-related vocabulary in an interactive language lesson with a visit to Campo de Fiori, Rome’s famous outdoor market, practicing newly learned skills with locals by purchasing local produce then preparing authentic Italian food during a cooking class.
- Discover how Rome became one of the largest empires of the ancient world with a guided walking tour of the Roman Forum and Colosseum, follow in the footsteps of Spartacus.
- Enjoy authentic experiences and engagement in local communities based in a medieval Tuscan city eg., a treasure hunt in the historic centre, day trips to Florence, Pisa or Lucca.
We collaborate closely on the specific educational needs and learning outcomes that are based on individually tailoring a group’s requirements, offering a range of historical, artistic, musical and traditional cultural experiences. These immersive experiences can complement a student exchange program with a sister school, or we can organise a full tour staying in a variety of accommodation styles. Japan is an eclectic destination where we can easily broaden the scope and appeal of an educational tour by combining other elements to a language tour, such as ancient history with attention to culture and different styles of art, or a focus on their fast paced technology industry and high levels of innovation.
