Cyprus is an ideal destination to study and practise English. Being part of the vast British Empire in the past, English is a second language.
Language schools provide courses starting from Basic English, Intensive English course that prepares the student for the IELTS exam and Business English. Alongside the above someone can choose from a variety of courses which aim at professionals of specific fields. The level of English is high as all schools must be accredited by the Ministry of Education and Culture of Cyprus while teaching staff consists of qualified native English speakers.
In some schools you have the option to choose the family programme or the individual programme where you can decide to stay in a hotel or a lovely traditional agrotouristic house in a village. Juniors can join with their whole school class from home at the summer camp.
Educational programmes are combined with entertaining activities and field trips in the area or all over Cyprus.
The most important fact is that you will combine holidays with learning, together with people from around the world in a place chosen by the Gods as their playground. Having 340 days of sunshine, beautiful and diverse scenery and a traditionally hospitable population anytime is a good time to go out and experience this magical country. The only certainty is that you will never get bored here.
The English Language Schools Association of Cyprus (ELSAC) is the regulatory body that oversees the provision of lessons and ensures that all language schools provide tuition of the highest standard. For further information please visit their website http://elsac.org/index.php
