United States: the 7 events that you can't miss in september
Have you just landed your expected language stay in the United States? If you really want to learn English, nothing better than to immerse yourself completely in the unique culture of the country of Uncle Sam. Exhibition, fashion, sports or even unusual, Holingo.com offers an anthology of seven events to note on your agenda for the next school year.
A Language stay is the perfect combination of language learning and cultural immersion in a previously unknown country. For those wishing to link the useful and the pleasant, it is also possible to make a language stay "part time". This allows you to be in class in the morning to perfect your English. In the afternoon, the student has free time in front of them to wander to other more touristy occupations such as shopping, playing sports or visiting a museum. In September, the events not to be missed across the Atlantic are numerous and adapted to everyone's tastes.
