I went to Chichester College for the third time last July with a group of 23 students and teachers from Corral de Bustos, Chañar Ladeado, Monte Maiz y Baldissera in the provinces of Cordoba and Santa Fe, Argentina. The three study trips were really unforgettable and everybody wants to come back. In fact, some of them went twice.
As a teacher and team leader of the group, I strongly recommend the experience. Chichester College is very well organized, General English courses are very dynamic, amusing and students really improve their communication skills. Everybody loved the optional classes were they learn from cooking to massage and from drama techniques to cabin crew basics or cinema.
What I like most , however, is the cultural diversity experience. In Chichester you will understand that all over the world we are different. You learn about what people do, eat, wear and think in different cultures, and you learn to accept differences! You hear the most different ¨Englishes¨ around the world in a friendly atmosphere.
Chichester is an ideal city for young people - it´s safe, clean , beautiful and the people are very polite. It´s a very nice place to live in!
At weekends, you can take the train to visit the amazing surrounding towns nearby, you can enjoy the sea in Brighton or go sightseeing around the lovely small villages or enjoy the glamorous Arundel castle. What´s more, the college organizes trips to famous English places such as Oxford, Windsor Castle, London, Cambridge or Bath.
To sum up, if you have the chance to go with your students, don´t miss it!
