What is a CLAC British Buddy?CLAC Buddies are British boys and girls aged 10 to 17 who will participate fully in the course programme as students, but will have a special role in helping and making friends with CLAC International students. They will take part in classes and activities as well as share meals and join in all CLAC special events and excursions, creating a lively international atmosphere and promoting natural language exchange in an exciting and friendly environment. A CLAC British Buddy will sleep in the same bedrooms as the International students, in mixed nationalities, creating lasting friendships that last for many years. CLAC Buddies are not staff - they are on the course to have fun, be friendly and support other students.
