I look for adventures to the own harm
Learning of foreign language demands assiduity and patience. But for many fidgets there is no punishment worse, than bezvylazno to sit in audience, to pore over textbooks or as the galerny slave, on long hours to chain itself earphones to an audio equipment of a language laboratory. What it and to remain ignoramuses? Language schools of the world resolutely answer: no way. It appears, it is possible to study and wandering on strongly cross-country terrain, and plowing water open spaces, and diving on a bottom sea, and soaring over the earth.
Safari in an Australian way
Some countries as though are intended by the nature for adventurers. For example, Australia and New Zealand, intriguing with one geographical position – in the Southern hemisphere, from the point of view of the European, at the world’s end. Certainly, these countries quite civilized, also do not hope that you there will ornament a ritual tattoo as Paganelya, or will eat, as Cook. On the contrary – will lodge in comfortable hotel or the hospitable family house and will teach English the most advanced methods. And during free time from occupations you reward yourselves for diligence, with all the heart satisfying the passion to the active – that spirit grasped! – to a way of life.
The Australian language school Cairns College of English is located from this point of view very successfully – in the city of Cairns which is considered the exotic center even on the exotic Fifth continent. Still, on one party the Coral Sea and the well-known Big Barrier reef, on another – the damp jungle and mountain tops. Therefore to students thrill-seekers here good fortune. In addition to English lessons (three days in a week) it is possible to choose the Reef safari program – a high-grade course of scuba diving with issue of the certificate of the scuba diver, an alloy on inflatable rafts on Talli’s rough mountain river and, for a change, travel to the mountain village Kuranda where you will be brought by an ancient train on the antediluvian railway lying through tunnels, gorges and the woods.
Those who is not involved by communication with inhabitants of the underwater world, will prefer, probably, "A tropical safari" in which campaigns on islands of the Big Barrier reef and riding are included. Plus, besides, rafts and trip to Kuranda. And hard wood campaigns with spending the night are coming participants of "What safari".
Where hobbits wander
For certain after viewing of the film "Lord of the Rings" the number wishing to visit New Zealand increased. Almost each language school of this country will organize for the listeners every possible entertainments on fresh, non-polluting air – from respectable golf before dashing equestrian vaulting and otvyazny cycle racings on mountain tracks.
One of schools and is called: Taupo Language and Outdoor Education Centre. Her founders knew where to develop the activity: on the bank of the biggest in the country of Lake Taupo, near Tongariro’s national park – 2273 sq.km of the virgin nature where Tongariro’s well-known for the trout the river flows, and are located a little allegedly the extinct volcanoes one of which suddenly "woke up" in 1995 (for some years having spoiled life to ski resorts on its slopes).
Among strengthening a body and spirit of the occupations accompanying a course of English, the school offers, first, all types "games on water" – windsurfing, an alloy on rafts and kayaks, circulation under a sail, and also catching of river or lake fish. Secondly, at your service mountains: mountaineering, rock-climbing, an ascension on Tongariro’s volcano (!). In the third – aeronautics on every possible aircraft, hikes of different degree of difficulty, and from July to October also mountain skiing.
Academy of adventures
In Europe where each square centimeter, apparently, is rendered habitable, too there will be many places which will please to a potential flibustyer and the adventurer. For example, the seaside and mountain regions of Spain, at least vicinities of Malaga where there is a language school Academia Adventure Spanish Studies (AASS). The proximity of the Mediterranean Sea disposes to scuba diving, a water ski and all types of surfing. On neighboring mountains it is possible to wander and climb simply, and it is possible to rush on cars or bicycles. At the sight of a hang-glider soaring over the head or a paraplane of very few people will resist temptation to rise in air and "to spread wings". Unless admirers of the firm earth and fast driving will prefer karting.
Studying Spanish in AASS, even the absolute beginner can indulge in these "extreme" occupations, certainly, under supervision of the instructor. Moreover in the company of Spanish volunteers – the "stool pigeons" provoking the wards to communicate only in Spanish. Speak, very much promotes development of oral speech and replenishment of a lexical stock by untranslatable idioms.
On appointment to Moby-Dick
Having appeared on Sherkin’s island, especially clearly you realize that the British Isles after all the archipelago." The continent" which you see behind the passage, is not the continent, and Ireland, to which southwest extremity from here only ten minutes on the ferry. Here the Sherkin English Language Centre school where, naturally, it is possible to pass a course of the general or business-English is located. And after the fortnight language program there come gold days for those who loves the sea. Week of occupations by diving for a long time will charge you adrenaline, and skilled scuba divers can receive the certificate of the diver rescuer and even the younger instructor in scuba diving – than not a new profession? Instead of wish to resemble under a sail with old salts from friendly yacht-club, singing shanties – English sailor’s songs: What shall we do with a drunken sailor early in the morning? Still you are waited here by riding, fishing from the coast or from a vessel, and for a small additional payment skilled local seaman Colin Barnes takes out wishing to the high sea on a high-speed catamaran – to watch dolphins, whales and seals.
