It is well known that it is easier to learn a language with activities.  AICOL provides its students occasional activities away from our school to give students the chance to meet and talk with local Australians.  For example, visit a bookshop in a country village in the Gold Coast hinterland.  Go fishing ….. of course you will have to learn the English to go the bait and tackle shop to buy your bait!  Options to join after class Camp activities with other international students and AICOL staff – conditions apply.
