The advance guard has already tried, tested and decided on a number of venues and visits, and the base will be the charming Kvarner town of Lovran with its impressive villas, built in the early 1900s, one of which has been selected as the school’s home for the trip which takes place between 20th and 27th June 2020.

Below is a brief history of the evolution of these annual events which many students attend year on year to consolidate their language learning, find out more about Croatian culture, and have fun and swap stories with their fellow students.
In line with our students’ suggestions and aspirations and with the aim of maximising their opportunities to improve and make use of their developing knowledge of Croatian, the Croatian Language School has introduced into its portfolio the ‘Croatian Language and Culture’ programme.
