The town

Cardiff is the capital of Wales and is one of the most important cities in the UK for its culture, sport, education and shopping. Situated in the south east of Wales, near the shores of Bristol, this city is full of points of interest such as the Milennium Stadium, one of the most modern stadiums in Europe, the National Museum and the Cardiff Castle which is an imposing building with over two thousand years of history. Cardiff is a city full of life, modern with a commercial centre in a pedestrian area which leads from the train station through to the Castle.

The school

The English classes take place in the training centre Cardiff & Vale College, which was formed in September 2011 after being merged with Barry College and Glan Hafren College, two higher eductation establishments, becoming one of Wales’s largest training centres. The school is located in the east of Cardiff in the area of Rumney which is well connected with the centre of the city.

The accommodation

Students are treated as another member of the family. Sharing accommodation with the families forces the students to communicate and improve their English and their conversation practice. In Student Travel Camps the same family accommodates up to two students of different nationalities and they are responsible for ensuring that they speak English throughout.
