About The Bilingual Connection
The Bilingual Connection provides a personalised service for bilingual and international schools in Europe who are looking for English language immersion courses during the school year.
The students have the opportunity to improve their language skills and experience another culture through various activities. The company works exclusively with Achill College in Co. Mayo.
During the Spring school holidays, we organise language camps for students to to improve their English while taking part in various sports and cultural activities. The children attending generally come from bilingual families or have been schooled abroad at some stage so have a reasonable level of spoken English.
We started to take school groups in 2014 and we now welcome both primary and secondary school students. Each trip is organised in collaboration with the school staff and their objectives are incorporated into the planning for the week. We organise all aspects of the trip from transport to parent information evenings to the day-to-day camp activities while in Achill. We have both indoor and outdoor schedules. These can be blended depending on the focus of the trip. (Some activities are weather dependent)
