At College Platon we understand that learning a new language involves more than just sitting in a classroom all day long. Therefore we have many organized fun activities for students to compliment their work studies and allow for a richer more meaningful experience with us.

Students are usually accompanied by teachers and classmates on all activities unless specified otherwise.

Some of our activites include site seeing, travel, tourism activites etc. Trips are organized by the ISX (International Student Exchange) you will see posters around the school for more information.
