In early 2012 we decided
to expand our business and organize study tours
outside of Ukraine for language learners and practitioners
– for people who want to improve their language
skills in the native speaking environment and
see with their own eyes the country whose language
they have chosen to become their profession, their
hobby, or a new page in their lives.
A lingvotour consists of two stages. At the first
("start-up") stage (usually 2 weeks) the students
attend a short-term course (about 3 hours a day
from Monday to Friday) in a language school and
stay with a family of native speakers. During
the second stage (1 or 2 weeks) they travel around
the country or a certain part of it on a pre-selected
route, seeing the most interesting places and
practicing their skills in a variety of situations.
Meetings and joint activities with native speakers
are also included in the program.
If you are a language school
that provides short-term language courses in a
place close to historic or natural landmarks,
or if you are a travel agency that organizes local
trips and excursions in your country in your native
language, or if you are an individual that enjoys
intercultural communication and acting as a local
expert, you are welcome to join our project! We
would like you to share your ideas with us.
