Welcome to the website dedicated to the INTERNATIONAL VILLAGE project.
 
We are proud to say that this project is unique in its European scale.

This project is an interesting alternative to traditional school trips organised in the participants’ home country as well as trips to England where students don't really have a chance to speak English.

The main idea of the INTERNATIONAL VILLAGE project is:
Participants from different countries meet in a hotel located in Slovakia and stay there for 7 days. During that time they take part in different activities such as language workshops with native speakers from USA, UK, Canada and Australia, sports activities, art and intercultural activities as well as workshops about EU and many other intersting activities.
Through this project they will have a chance to meet their peers from other countries and make new international friendships, get to know them better, the music they listen, the idols they have  etc. It will enable them to get to know the cultures of other nations. The project will also make them more open-minded and tolerant and will show them that they are not much different from their peers from other countries, and that although they speak different languages they are very much alike.

This project will make them feel like Europeans. We know that through being together, sharing and cooperating in different activites, they will overcome all prejudices against other nations or races. and break their stereotypes about other cultures which they have

The Project is targeted at teenagers from European countries, but not only, aged 14-17, who can speak English well enough to communicate.

The official language of the INTERNATIONAL VILLAGE project is English, which means that all the activities will be led in English by native speakers from USA, Canada and UK. The participants will be obliged to use that language all the time throughout their stay. It will help them break the barrier of shyness when speaking English what is a great problem for those who learn the language.


In 2011 we hosted 150 students from 6 different countries.
In 2012 we hosted 280 students from 8 different countries .
In 2013 we hosted 400 students from 9 different countries
