It is well known that it is easier to learn a language with activities.  AICOL provides its EAP 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!
