GoLanguages 2022

“Languages. Cultures. Connections.”

LONDON | 27-28 MAY 2022

What to expect from GoLanguages 2022

Whether you’ve always wanted to learn a second language but haven’t got around to it, want to dust the cobwebs off a language you learned at school or are looking for an opportunity to brush up a second language you don’t get to speak in that often, GoLanguages 2022 will suit you down to the ground.

GoLanguages 2022 is a bit like an express exchange programme, presenting the opportunity for as much in-depth conversation, cultural interaction and relaxed socialising as suits each individual participant. And because we welcome guests from both sides of the channel, you will be experiencing real, authentic communication – not just classroom exercises.

And while we know that learning a foreign language is fun, engaging and stimulating, we also know that environment and down time is important too – so we’ve chosen our favourite five star London hotel, meaning every moment of your event – whether improving your target language, relaxing in opulent surroundings or seeing the sights London has to offer – will feel like an absolute treat.

For those who really want to make the most of their weekend, we are also offering a special Connections Dinner, which you can read more about here.

You can also look forward to:

R

A luxury venue, guaranteed to make guests feel indulged.

R

A hand-picked team of expert coaches, passionate about sharing their knowledge.

An engaged, enthusiastic and friendly group of guests.

Event Structure

Over the course of 1 or 2 days you will have the opportunity to attend as many or as few learning sessions as you like. Sessions are run in a hands-on, workshop style as opposed to a formal classroom environment, as we find this encourages more qualitative interactions and results in a better learning experience.

None of the workshops are compulsory, and whether you come on your own, as part of a couple or with a friend our expert coaches will be by your side throughout, making the language come alive with lots of role play and exercises, as well as time for questions and personalised feedback.

Connections Dinner

On Saturday night, guests have the opportunity to attend an exclusive Connections Dinner. This is a chance to step away from the more energetic, daytime element of the programme and make friends and connections while sharpening language skills in a relaxed and authentic social situation.

Because we want every element of this event to feel like a treat, the Connections Dinner will be taking place at the sumptuous Leicester Square Kitchen. As seen on BBC One’s Celebrity MasterChef, Leicester Square Kitchen embraces the art of shared dining and showcases a selection of contemporary Mexican & Peruvian small plates.

Similar dinner mixers as part of our residential programmes have received nothing but enthusiastic feedback from attendees, and places are limited so don’t miss your chance to book now!
