Quebec - loved it! Really beautiful city, great shopping, great bars and amazing ice sculptures!
Ski Le Gap gave me the opportunity to travel, learn a new skill, and meet people from all over the world. I gained even more confidence as a person than I already had, as well as gaining a thirst to travel to different parts of the world. The experience is definitely one of a kind in its class. The way in which you live train and play forms a real sense of a small community. I didnt have one student or staff member on Ski le Gap that I couldn’t relate to in some way or have a conversation with.
Despite the tears and cries for Mummy (and that was just from us!), it really was a week I couldn't have gone without. I learnt to love my kids and it made me realise how much I wanted to do this as a living. Long live Ski le Gap!
My teaching skills I acquired during the course are transferrable and I was able to teach English, for a year, at Moscow’s leading private school and the Moscow State University
The After Gap was the perfect way to finish a brilliant three months
