Language boost weekend for secondary school students

Learn to speak fluently in Dutch, English, French, German or Spanish

Do you find it hard to have conversations in foreign languages at school and feel like you’ll never learn to? Or maybe that you really want to learn to speak a language fluently but don’t get enough practice at school?

Then take advantage of this unique opportunity and attend a language boost weekend at Regina Coeli, the language institute also known as ‘the Nuns of Vught’, from 16 to 18 October. The language boost weekend is intended for students aged 15 to 18.

Aspects of the language boost weekend

  • You have an individual timetable and work on the things you find difficult.
  • Every day, you have several private lessons from our language trainers, who are all native speakers.
  • You can join in on the fun in group activities.
  • We eat together three times a day, so even then, you get the chance to practice.
  • You stay at Regina Coeli for the entire language-boost weekend and spend the night in our accommodation rooms.

Work on one of the following languages that special weekend:

  • Dutch
  • English
  • French
  • German
  • Spanish

The programme

We welcome you to our institute at 19.00 on Friday evening, so we expect you to arrive by that time. You then receive your individual lesson programme and a short explanation of the language training and meet the other participants who are there for the language boost weekend. Afterwards, we sit down together for a nice bite to eat.

Normally, adults who want to learn a foreign language for their work come to our language institute in Vught. For the language boost weekend, however, only young people between 15 and 18 years old get to come for training, so we adapt the activities and dinner a bit.

You get off to an early start on Saturday morning: the first lesson starts at 08.20. In between lessons, you have roughly an hour to do your homework and relax in one of the common rooms or your own room in the accommodation. The afternoon ends with a group activity, and we finish off by having dinner together.

Your lesson day on Sunday is the same as Saturday, and we round off the weekend together with a bite and a drink at half-past five.

The best place to learn languages

Regina Coeli is the best-known language institute in the Netherlands. This is because well-known Dutch people, sportsmen and politicians regularly come to us to learn foreign languages, and they gladly tell others about it. In general, though, we provide language training to adults who need to become better in a foreign language for their jobs.

We’re often called ‘the Nuns of Vught’ because of our roots—we were founded by an international order of nuns. Nowadays, the nuns no longer give lessons, and we have a thoroughly modern building. Yet, it’s often very peaceful there because everyone’s busy studying while they’re there—in that way, it still reminds many students of a cloister.
