A special offer for LEND Members
We were delighted to see so many familiar faces at the LEND Conference in beautiful Napoli in October! We hope those of you who were able to attend found the event informative and enjoyable. We were lucky enough to see this beautiful view from our hotel room before the first day of the conference!
At The Blue Penguin Company, we love what you do at LEND, and the motivation with which you do it! It’s a pleasure for us to be able to collaborate with LEND members in order to develop high quality English Language, Internship and Mentorship Programmes and Teacher Training Courses for you.
We love to put together personalised programmes to ensure both you and your students have the best possible learning experience during your time with us.
We invite you to take a look at this fantastic video we made of one of our Graphic Design Internship Groups from Summer 2019 so that you can see just some examples of what we can offer you.
In 2019 we had the opportunity to provide a large number of your students with high-quality, personalised learning programmes. Below are just a few words from one of your members about her experience of working with us.
We know that many of your schools are concerned about Brexit and as such, have stopped booking trips to the UK. This is devasting news for businesses like ours, and whilst we understand there is a lot of uncertainty around Brexit and what it means, we wanted to remind you that in terms of visiting the UK for Language and Training Courses – nothing has changed for 2020.
- You can still use your EU Identity Cards to travel until at least 31st December 2020
- You can still travel to the UK to study English without the need for a special visa for periods of up to 3 months
- The quality of English spoken in England is not the same as other ‘English Speaking’ countries in Europe – accents, dialects and colloquialisms differ and have a big impact on language learning
As a valued LEND member, we really want you to continue to benefit from the fantastic courses we offer, and as a special gift to you, we would like to offer you a 10% discount on group travel for student groups of 10 or more students, before 31st August 2020.
We’d love to hear from you (in English or Italian!) so get in touch today to see how we can make 2020 the best year yet for learning English!
With best wishes,
Leigh and Luisa
The Blue Penguin Company
I met the Blue Penguin Company and Leigh at Portonovo during the LEND Summer School in 2018. What immediately impressed me was their very professional and friendly approach. Among the different proposals that my school receives, I chose the Blue Penguin Company to organise a summer stay for a group of 12 girls who study fashion and design.
Leigh organised everything with the utmost punctuality and professionalism. The girls had a wonderful time both at school and with the host families. They took part in lots of extracurricular activities and had lots of fun. Leigh even organised two workshops at a fashion school where the girls learnt techniques relating to their profession. It was a very important experience for their personal and professional growth.
