Language school is located in a Mediterranean environment of the ” Paola di Rosa ” center, which overlooks the old town of Dubrovnik. Here are the rooms for the accommodation of learners, classrooms for the teaching, kitchen and sports gym. Forget on the ”ex cathedra” mode in which authoritative teacher is dominant, here all participants are active and involved because lecture-based teaching is complemented with language games, teamwork, discussions and many other forms of active teaching. Since the entire educational concept is based on the balance of work and free time, that is on the interweaving of the pleasant and useful, class lasts 4 hours per day, which leaves plenty of time for walking, organized tours, beach and all other activities of your own choice. In the working part of the day, top professors, who are also native speakers of the language, will guide the development of your language skills by using innovative and modern methods of teaching and learning; in free part of the day you’ll be refreshing your selves by enjoying the natural and cultural beauty of the location or other activities of your choice. Classrooms The term classroom we use only because it is a conventional expression, they are actually creation-rooms, building-room, training-rooms, playing-rooms and working-rooms. Because learning in them is not dull memorizing of facts and rules, but making logical connections, building lasting knowledge and practicing the language in sense of live conversational skills. These are areas in which we use mind and imagination, ”we play unrealistically with the realistically”, but during all this – we’re always working hard! Learning materials For more quality and easier learning, we have prepared specially designed materials, but also the classical canonical literature required for the learning of a foreign language. In addition to professional theoretical literature, dictionaries, and grammar that will be available to you, we have prepared special, adjusted and entertaining materials that stimulate the understanding of the content and motivation for learning!” Accommodation Participants of language school are located in the ”Paola di Rosa” center, in which the atmosphere of the Mediterranean ambiance is coupled with modern functionality and commotion of the space. Rooms are bright, cozy and comfortable, and in every are two or three beds. For the participants, the full board (breakfast, lunch and dinner) has been insured, and at their disposal, they have a recreation gym. Outer space of the object – just a stone decorated with plants and blue sky – is ideal for relaxing breaks, conversations, meetings, and learning. In the kitchen a home-made food from local ingredients is prepared every day, because learning, swimming and sun are taking a lot of energy, we dedicate a lot of attention on the nutritional composition of meals.”
