Why learn a language by the sea?

Below is why we are so committed to improving your language skills and proficiency.
In addition to being useful, interesting and stimulating, it is also a lot of fun!

Learning a language is fun

Working together in a group and learning something new creates an inspiring atmosphere and is fun.
Learning from each other as well as the interaction in a group are entertaining, but also useful components of this proces.

Learning a language is useful

Mastering a language is a craft. Despite all modern translation possibilities,
nothing compares to people's ability to assess, understand and use and apply languages.

Learning a language is interesting and inspiring

Learning a new language opens up new worlds. It broadens the experience, increases options of travel
and opens up a realm of media, books, films, culture and new opportunities.

Learning a language stimulates the mind

It is a form of 'brain fitness'. Learning a new language is an analytical activity and it keeps the brain working, fit and active.

'To learn, speak, write and read a foreign language stimulates the mind and enlarges and enriches your experiences and perceptions. In addition, speaking or writing in a foreign language is a craft. It is an important tool in communication, both in private life and in business. For the benefit of trade, hospitality, diplomatic relations, education and research, the command of foreign languages is indispensable. It makes connections, breaks the ice and builds bridges.'
