Language Trip To Goa, India

India is the second largest English speaking country in the world, so this is an ideal place to improve your English whilst experiencing this incredible country with a fascinating culture and vibrant, friendly people. 

I first backpacked around India in the 1990’s and have been coming back ever since, as quite simply there is no country like it. Come and try it out for yourself on a language holiday, with a gentle introduction to the country in beautiful Goa in the south of the country. I visited and fell in love with Patnem, a former fishing village, on holiday 10 years ago and I have been returning every year since. The climate between November and March is perfect for some winter sun with an average high of 30 degrees Celsius and a low of 20 degrees Celsius. The relaxed atmosphere on its beautiful beaches with excellent international beach restaurants makes it an ideal winter holiday destination. 

 I offer language trips to Goa, so that you can combine improving your English with a wonderful language holiday by the beach. The one week trips are staying in a small hotel by the beach. You can also choose 5/6 nights if you prefer. You will fully immerse yourself in English by using the language all week starting with us all having breakfast together, followed by 4 morning English lessons. I will then accompany you on 3 hours of leisure activities in the afternoon/ evening enjoying a meal out together. By speaking English all day, you will be using the language authentically enabling you to improve and gain confidence in a fun and natural way. I will be there in case you need any guidance and support, and you will be ‘learning by doing’, ensuring active learning as you go. 

We can include an optional short yoga session at sunrise or sunset at your request (I am a qualified yoga teacher) 

Getting there
