Learning on holiday – does it work at all? Yes, and really well! Ben tried it out and took a language trip to Nîmes in the south of France. For two weeks he learned French vocabulary and grammar during the day and tested what he had learned right in the evening when he went out.
“I wasn’t very good at French at school,” he says looking back. “I found it simply terribly boring to swot up on vocabulary just to take a test afterwards. I was very unmotivated. I lacked access to the language.”
