In afternoons you may join additional activities – excursions, seminars on various topics, game evenings, parties etc. That gives many opportunities for practising English!

This list also includes visa invitation letter that we send. Usually, we send a visa invitation letter within 1-3 days after receiving the required pre-payment from the applicant.
