The stay under the Villango program lasts six days, from Monday to Saturday.
In the morning of the first day of the program (Monday), participants meet at the meeting point in Łódź (the exact location will be communicated to you) and leave together for Villango. On the last day of the programme (Saturday), around 2 pm, the bus leaves the language village for Łódź. You’re back in Łódź around 3:30 pm.
A typical day in Villango:
9:00 – 10:00. Breakfast
The day begins at the table, with conversations over breakfast. You will eat a classic Polish breakfast which is very different from your own with sometimes surprising products 🙂 At each table, the number of local and native participants is equal.
10:00 – 11:00. Presentation sessions
During their stay in the language village, Polish learners will prepare a presentation in a foreign language. Each day, you will spend an hour together working on this presentation, which will be the fruit of your collaboration.
11:00 am – 1:00 pm. Sessions in pairs
In the morning, you will have two sessions in pairs with two different local participants. You will be able to discuss interesting topics, both for yourself and your contact person. Or, you can use the topics of conversation that we suggest. You are invited to take advantage of the surrounding areas, such as the garden, the terrace, hiking trails, etc.
13h00 – 14h00. Lunch
Same formula as the breakfast, including culinary surprises 😉 You will have the opportunity to taste the dishes of the local cuisine that the chef will prepare especially for you! You will have a different place because we would like to give the participants the opportunity to talk with different people during the stay.
14h00 – 15h00. Relaxing time
It’s time for a nap. You can rest and/or participate in the activities proposed by the organizers, such as a walk in the forest, a game of balls or a bike ride.
3:00 – 4:30. Group Session
Every day, a group session is planned to simulate collective situations: discussions, negotiations, team meetings or an eating out.
16h30 – 17h00. Snack-coffee
Time to have a cup of coffee and a snack. Each day you will have the opportunity to taste a different traditional Polish cake, accompanied by a riddles or idiomatic expression to explain to the local participants. Even if we change every day, we will barely have time to give you a taste of Polish pastries!
5:00pm – 7:00pm. Sessions in pairs
After lunch, we have two more conversation sessions and practical language exercises in pairs.
7:00 – 8:00. Dinner
Take a new seat and enjoy the company! Enjoy your meal!
8:00 – 9:00. Time of animations
It’s time for fun! The native speakers prepare a game or animation for the whole group to introduce their customs to the local participants 🙂
9:00 – 10:30. Theme Evening
This is the time for cultural exchange around films and songs.
10:30 pm – End of the program
After a long day, rich in various activities, you are free to relax, have a cocktail at the bar, play pool, chat… If you are tired, the arms of Morpheus await you 🙂
