Get Span­ish lessons be­fore head­ing off on va­ca­tion

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - Business -

The Chameleon Lan­guage Cen­tre (CLC) in Char­lot­te­town is team­ing up with TPI-Travel Places to of­fer Span­ish lessons for trav­ellers.

“I be­lieve in part­ner­ships and col­lab­o­rat­ing as a way of help­ing each busi­ness to suc­ceed,” says Tracey Allen of TPI-Travel.

Allen said she sees the trend of vol­un­teer and ad­ven­ture travel cre­at­ing a need for lan­guage train­ing.

Vol­un­teer travel is de­fined as travel that in­volves an el­e­ment of vol­un­teer­ing in the des­ti­na­tion cho­sen and can in­clude organized ac­tiv­i­ties such as build­ing projects, teach­ing projects, wildlife and eco-ac­tiv­i­ties.

Ad­ven­ture travel is ac­tive travel where there is hik­ing, cycling, sail­ing, div­ing, snorkelling or other ad­ven­ture ac­tiv­i­ties.

“Learn­ing new lan­guages is a great way to truly ex­pe­ri­ence the cul­ture when vis­it­ing a des­ti­na­tion whether it is for an all in­clu­sive va­ca­tion, busi­ness travel ad­ven­ture travel or vol­un­teer travel,” says Allen.

CLC of­fers lan­guage cour­ses taught by na­tive speak­ers, who have years of ex­pe­ri­ence in teach­ing.

From Jan­uary to March, sev­eral Span­ish cour­ses will be of­fered to those in­di­vid­u­als and busi­nesses want­ing to re­ceive an in­tro­duc­tion to Span­ish prior to a trip to a Span­ish-speak­ing des­ti­na­tion.
