Croatian Language and Culture Study Course
18th TO 25th JUNE 2016
Plans are already well in hand for next summer’s CLS study trip to Northern Dalmatia.
This time the venue will be the small coastal town of Kožino near Zadar.
During the week, we will study the language and explore the culture and history of Northern Dalmatia by visiting the towns of Zadar, Šibenik, Nin and two national parks: the Krka Waterfalls and the Kornati Islands.
The emphasis will be on maximising students’ opportunities to improve and make use of their knowledge of Croatian and this will be achieved in a variety of ways.
Firstly there will be twelve hours of language tuition lessons over the course of the week, organised in three-hour sessions on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. These will be conducted at two different levels, beginners/improvers and intermediate.
Secondly a programme of excursions will be on offer and during those times, students will be encouraged to practise their Croatian amongst themselves and with any native speakers on the trips and any communication from the organisers of the trips will be in Croatian.
Thirdly in their free time, students will be able to try out their language skills in and around town, in shops, restaurants etc.

|Saturday 18th||Arrival, orientation, welcome drink at the CLS home for the week|
