The town

Situated in the South of Wales, Swansea sits by the sea and is just 70 km from Cardiff and 130 km from Bristol. It is the second biggest city in Wales. It was an important industrial centre and port during XIX and XX centuries; however during the Second World War it was practically destroyed. Today Swansea offers a mix of old and new which is surprising and beautiful for visitors to behold. It is a city that lives facing the sea, with a beautiful bay that stretches for 10 km with fine sandy beaches. The streets are alive with shops, historical and emblematic buildings such as Swansea Castle from the XII century. Also, the Waterfront Museum presents their industrial history and their prestigious Maritime Museum heritage.

The school

On this course the English classes are imparted in Gower College in the centre of Swansea. It is a training school where they teach a great variety of courses for professionals, this came about through the fusion of Gorseinon College with Swansea School.

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.
