ECS Ski trip
After consultation with parents we've finally taken the plunge and have booked a 17-person chalet in the French town of Morzine for an ECS skiing trip for the week 29 December - 5 January. The chalet will be exclusive to our group, enabling us to create a warm, well-supervised family atmosphere. Days will be spent learning and improving skiing or snowboarding, in English, with qualified instructors. Meals will be provided in the chalet and evenings will be spent relaxing in the resort and the chalet. We will organize a daily language game around the chalet fire – Charades or similar – to encourage everyone to mix, have fun and use English together. Sarah and I think this will be a natural extension of the 'fun, friendship and learning' that we offer in the summer, a 'stepping stone' between one summer and the next, reminding students of the reasons for learning English and providing a boost to their motivation. We're very excited about this new initiative will provide further details in due course.
