2020 Language and Cultural Immersion Programmes

December 6 2019

Has it been too long since you were immersed in the language and culture that you teach?

Is an international trip normally too tricky to manage with your home and work life, let alone our uncertain Covid-19 world?

The 2020 Language and Cultural Immersion Programmes for teachers of Chinese, French, German, Japanese and Spanish are an opportunity for teachers to spend five nights in Queenstown soaking up their target language and culture with the Future Learning Solutions' team, other selected teachers from around the country and language/culture specific organisations.

This programme is FREE* for NZ registered (all category) teachers of languages.

Programme content includes:

Daily language classes in the target language.
Daily inter-cultural activities/events.
Two formal evening meals.

Key dates:

German, Japanese and Spanish: Sunday 27 September - Friday 2 October, 2020
Chinese and French: Sunday 4 October  - Friday 9 October, 2020
