Language Immersion Programs with TFT

Creative Itineraries

When it comes to learning a language, the more fun, the better! We love incorporating unique activities into our itineraries to encourage teens to practice the language outside of the classroom.

The Perfect Balance

Our concept of combining structured lessons with time to explore and practice the language with real-world encounters provide the strongest form of immersion and retention.

Savvy Travelers

We don’t want to just take you along our itinerary and show you each place; we want to teach you how to be a real traveler! We are with you every step of the way to give you tips and advice so that you can be a more well-rounded and independent traveler in the future.

Celebrate Cultures

Traveling should be about more than just seeing. It’s about experiencing! Which is why for every program we focus on cultural immersion. We want you to gain a better understanding and appreciation of each culture and take something deeper away from your experience.

New Perspectives

Traveling provides the incredible opportunity to see things from a new perspective. Our programs highlight this and we live by the motto: it’s not strange, it’s just different! At the end of your time abroad you may discover you love some of the customs from different cultures such as leisurely strolls after dinner and fresh croissants for breakfast.

Staff Who Become Best Friends

All of our staff are chosen not just because they are experts in the countries we visit, but because they are also fun and relatable! It’s important you enjoy hanging out with your counselors, and we look forward to hanging out with you too!
