What is a CLAC British Buddy?
For international students at a summer school to have a British student who they can talk to, exchange ideas with, make a friend of and simply live together with is a dream that CLAC makes come true.
British students attending the courses each summer enhance the international atmosphere and create the opportunity for natural language exchange.
They join in classes, activities, meal times and excursions, share bedrooms and are part of every student’s experience and memories. Many of our international students make such good friends with the British Buddies that they keep in contact long after the courses have finished, visit each other and often stay lifelong 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.
