Estonia - Exchange

All inclusive



Details of the trip
Estonia is called the 'Pearl of the Baltic', with fairytale landscapes, vast forests and crystal clear lakes. Its capital, Tallinn, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the best-preserved medieval cities in the world. Considered to be the queen of renewable energy in Europe, Estonia preserves ancient traditions and at the same time welcomes modernity while respecting nature.

School starts at 8 a.m. and 6 to 8 subjects are studied each day, with lessons lasting 45 minutes each. As in Italian schools, subjects in Estonia are not chosen by the student, but by the school. The subjects taught are mainly: mathematics, Estonian grammar and literature, physics, history, music and foreign languages. Lessons, with the exception of foreign language lessons, are in Estonian.

Estonian families are very close and sincere, and although they may seem a little shy and reserved at first, you will be welcomed with open arms. Estonians love tradition, singing and dancing. With your host family, you will have the chance to participate in one of the many music festivals organised throughout the country during the year.

BEC British European Centre

 “Da cinquant’anni BEC lavora per e con la scuola al fine di organizzare programmi scolastici all’estero, vacanze studio e programmi di alternanza scuola lavoro per quei giovani animati dal desiderio di viaggiare, di incontrarsi con ragazzi di altri Paesi e di crescere in un mondo senza confini.” 
Da sempre il viaggio è il leitmotiv del lavoro che BEC svolge con esperienza e serietà; il viaggio come ricerca, conoscenza, approfondimento e integrazione, con l’obiettivo di offrire ai giovani gli strumenti per acquisire autonomia, non solo linguistica.

BEC si rivolge agli studenti e alle famiglie che credono nei programmi all'estero, confidando nella loro utilità, non solo quale approfondimento delle conoscenze linguistiche, ma anche e soprattutto, quale ampliamento degli orizzonti per porre le basi per un futuro ricco e multiculturale.

BEC si rivolge alle famiglie che desiderano avvicinarsi all’Exchange Program, per valutare la possibilità di permettere ai propri figli di trascorrere un periodo di 2, 3, 5 oppure 9 mesi lontano da casa, frequentando una High School (scuola superiore) e vivendo presso una Host Family (famiglia ospitante), con la consapevolezza che entrambe le sfere avranno un ruolo molto importante: il confronto con un altro ordinamento scolastico e il conseguente adattamento da una parte; il punto di riferimento per una nuova vita all’estero ed il luogo ideale per l’inserimento in una nuova comunità dall’altra.

Oltre  all’Exchange Program, BEC promuove programmi di accoglienza in Italia, propone soggiorni studio per adulti (16+) combinati all'ottenimento di certificazioni linguistiche o periodi di volontariato e stage, organizza vacanze studio estive per adolescenti. 
 BEC è membro di CSIET (Council on Standard for International Educational Travel) e IALCA (Associazione Italiana degli Agenti e dei Consulenti Linguistici).

Lo staff BEC è altamente qualificato e a disposizione per qualsiasi esigenza, dal momento della prenotazione sino al rientro al termine del soggiorno mettendo a disposizione assistenza in Italia e in loco 24 ore su 24 durante il soggiorno. 
Passione, professionalità e flessibilità caratterizzano lo staff BEC, che sarà al vostro fianco passo dopo passo per realizzare il vostro progetto all’estero!
