From its very foundation in 1985, CLAC has invited British students to be part of its courses each summer to enhance the international atmosphere and create the opportunity for natural language exchange. The CLAC founders never had any doubts about how well it would work.
British Buddies at CLAC join in classes, activities, meal times and excursions, share bedrooms and are part of every student’s experience and memories on a CLAC course. Many of our international students make such good friends of the British Buddies that they keep in contact long after the courses have finished, visit each other and often stay lifelong friends.
CLAC friends are friends forever
Make real English friends...Speaking practice in English improves fluency, pronunciation and confidence and the British Buddies know that their role is to ensure CLAC international students get as much practice as possible.
British Buddies are carefully selected for their friendly, lively personalities so that they become a friend to all, encourage international friendship groups and create a genuine reason for all the students to communicate together in English.
