WHAT IS THE MLA EXPERIENCE?
Each MLA Team Member is empowered to create a unique and memorable day for our students. Our programmes are built to provide the best experience of the destination they choose. The MLA programmes include cultural integration, as well as activities and excursions that include the local flavours to bring a unique experience to life.
MLA British, Irish, American and Canadian Experience
Visiting a country also means living and knowing its culture, its history, and its many traditions. Our MLA Experiences highlight the best of what foreign cities and countries can offer: dances, music, food, literature, films and many other surprises. In each centre, there is a different MLA Experience that will allow students to discover the real atmosphere of the host country with magical moments: The Royal Family, Peter Pan, Harry Potter, Sherlock Holmes, Romeo and Juliet, The Golden Era of Jazz, Celtic Traditions, American Cowboys, Pirates of the Caribbean, Hawaiian Luau… all exclusively planned for each group!
Where indicated, students can experience one of the acclaimed MLA MiniBreaks with an overnight visit to a unique city and extra attractions! Groups are accommodated in Halls of Residence or three- and four-star Hotels.
Chit Chat Club
There are areas available to MLA students where they can meet our team and continue to practice listening/comprehension/speaking activities.
Hard Rock Cafe
Most Top Plus programmes include a meal at the world-famous Hard Rock Cafe serving their legendary American fare since 1971.
Many Top Plus programmes include a musical in one of the most well-known theatres in London’s West End or on Broadway in New York.
EXCURSIONS WITH ENGLISH SPEAKING STAFF
AND ENTRANCES INCLUDED
The Top Plus programme allows groups to have more time exploring, more excursions, more fun, more services, more activities and lots of cool places to visit! Occasionally unsupervised time, or free time, will be given to students ages 11-17 for up to an hour within a specified area, in groups of three or more.
The Top Plus programme supplies several full day and half day excursions with entrances and transfers included. In addition, students will be accompanied by English speaking staff during the trips to ensure greater student safety and promote the practice of the English language in a real-world setting.
Many MLA centres operate a zig-zag format, with either morning lessons and afternoon activities or morning activities and afternoon lessons. During the second week, the schedule will swap to the opposite format. Below there is a sample timetable. For many programmes in the United States and Canada, where the excursion programme is rich, we use full day lessons (mornings and afternoons) in order to allow for more full day excursions. The Top Plus programme allows groups to have more time exploring, more excursions, more fun, more services, more activities and lots of cool places to visit!
In addition to our excursions programme, we offer students the chance to choose optional excursions at an extra charge. The London Eye, Disneyland, Universal Studios, and Harry Potter World are just a few of the many examples of ways you can personalize your MLA experience. Optional excursions vary at each centre and each week throughout the summer. They may also be dependent on booking numbers. You will find details and costs in each centre.
