Travelling Languages to Attend Alphe Conference in London this September 2012
Travelling Languages are excited to announce that they will be attending this years’ Alphe Conference which takes place in Westminster Bridge Park Plaza, London, from Friday 31st August 2012 until Sunday 2nd August 2012. Agents can now pre-book 30 minute meetings with Travelling Languages directly on the meeting manager provided by Alphe www.hothousemedia.com/mm. Travelling Languages offer unique tailored one and two week courses travelling throughout Ireland learning English and travelling throughout Sicily learning Italian.
Travelling Languages’ defines their unique way of teaching by ensuring ‘total immersion’, a method that encourages students to speak their chosen foreign language 24-7!
Traditional language schools falter by only teaching and communicating the chosen foreign language during class time, immediately after which, their students will meet other students or friends and quickly revert to their native tongue. This slows down a student’s capacity to reach fluency in the studied language.
A very different approach is used by Travelling Languages, ensuring total immersion guarantees that you will practice your chosen foreign language 24-7! Travelling Languages have created a new style of tutor, called a “Talker Jockey”, who will travel with you in order to keep you engaged in conversation to encourage fluency. A “TJ” is a student like you, with similar interests and of similar age. He/she is native speaker of the language you are learning, who knows the local culture and will help you to immerse yourself in it. There will always be 1 “TJ” to every 5 students, to make sure that the only language spoken is the one you are learning.
Travelling Languages courses offer twenty hours per week with a certified teacher; mornings are spent in the classroom while afternoons are spent travelling and exploring. A “trip of a lifetime” is offered while both learning and travelling with Travelling Languages. Exploring bustling cities, quaint towns, historic landmarks and fantastic countryside is all part of the experience. Visits to Museums, Art galleries and famous attractions are included in each package. The students will get to appreciate the local culture and history of the country that they are visiting and, of course, make new friends with locals and fellow students alike.
One week Bed and Breakfast (B&B) packages start from €999 per person sharing and two week B&B packages start from €1,899 per person sharing, log onto http://www.travellinglanguages.com/lang/en/thepackage to find out any further information.
