Social Programme/Activities Programme
Choose a Language in Group school for your children because you want them to experience more than just a language course. In all of our Young Learner centres your children will have the chance to enjoy lots of different activities and trips to places of interest. These are great opportunities to practice their language, meet other young people from all over the world and also to have fun!
On a Language in Group Young Learner course your children will have 5 days of supervised half day activities or excursions, a full day weekend excursion and at least 3 evening activities or parties. This full programme of activities keeps your children busy and teaches them to use their English with confidence, as well as developing new skills in other areas such as sports, arts or music.
All of these activities, parties and excursions are monitored by one of our team of Langauge in Group Activity Leaders. These English speaking guides are there to serve as tour guides, motivators and English Language facilitators. They are always on hand to support students and make absolutely sure that the students are safe and happy.
Each week students will be given a programme of activities for the week, with lots of individual choice. Some sample activities are listed:

Language in Group schools give the highest priority to young learners safety and welfare.
For all Homestay courses, there are curfews in place unless the students are on a supervised activity or with their group leader.
From the minute our young learners come out of the arrival airport, we take full responsibility for them. You will receive an emergency telephone number in of problems. On the student's first day they will be given a detailed and comprehensive welcome talk. This will be given by the Centre Manager and the students will be given information about rules, behaviour, the school, classes, daily timetable, activities and a local tour. They will also be given contact numbers in case of problems.
In all centres, we have dedicated, experienced and trained staff whose responsibility is to ensure that students are safe, healthy and happy. We are, of course, fully recognised by the Irish and UK regulatory bodies and so have all the required first aid procedures and facilities in place.
