A FRESH APPROACH TO LANGUAGE IMMERSION 
Each day of your Language Immersion Tour is built around a different theme that ties together daily language classes, cultural activities and interactions with locals. Accredited classes at our EF International Language Schools provide students with the cultural context and relevant vocabulary they’ll need to navigate each experiential activity. Through it all, your Language Immersion Tour Director will be with you, supporting your students’ language learning and highlighting each breakthrough moment.
