What Makes Us Different?
Our innovative Santa Fe language school offers customized immersion English language programs, with an emphasis on experiential learning outside the classroom. Small classes allow for personal attention to ensure you reach your learning goals. Online classes available.
English is the global language or lingua franca, and is the second most spoken language in the world. Allow us to develop a unique program for you. Experiential learning is at the core of our program. We emphasize practical language skills in the classroom, which are reinforced during our signature Beyond the Classroom activities.
WHAT IS EDUTOURISM?
Edutourism refers to travel undertaken for the purpose of study, self-improvement or intellectual stimulation in unique natural, historical and multicultural environments.
Our programs focus on communication in real-world situations. We are proud to offer dynamic environments both within the classroom and outside to enhance language learning. Students develop skills and confidence to use the language in all professional, personal, and academic situations.
