A Typical Day at the Language Schools

While each School's daily schedule is unique, it's still possible to sketch a general idea of how your typical day might flow. The first half is spent in anywhere from three to five classroom hours, followed by lunch with your professors and peers.

In the afternoons, you put your newly learned language skills to work, participating in co-curricular activities ranging from cooking, calligraphy and yoga to music, soccer, and hiking. While students are expected to participate in the activities of their school, participation in any specific activity is voluntary.

During the evening you might attend a lecture by a visiting scholar or commentator, watch a film, or participate in a cultural celebration relevant to your language and culture of study.
