For those of you who have been itching to go to Europe but the cost of the Euro has been cramping your style, now is your chance!! With the value of the Euro falling, take advantage of Europe while it’s hot. We guarantee that you will not be disappointed. Our European programs have something for everyone. See what all the hype is spending a few weeks in the summer in Europe’s famous capital cities.
February 25th is the day the world recognizes Commedia dell’Arte. Thanks to Commedia, we have the term “slapstick”. Commedia dell’Arte began in the 16th Century in Italy when professional actors traveled around in troupes performing on city streets, royal courts or wherever they had an audience. There were no elaborate sets and they used what they could find for props including animals, food, and furniture. Some of the most famous characters that came out of Commedia are Arlecchino, Pantalone, Zanni and Il Capitano. The character Arlecchino bore two sticks tied together, which made a great noise on impact leading to “slapstick” comedy. Using improvisation and masks, Commedia became world famous and today we can see the characters portrayed in movies and television.
Go Inspired is proud to offer a Commedia dell’Arte course in the place where it all began. A fun hands-on workshop with participants from all over the world blending their cultures, humor and improvisation skills while learning from professional Italian actors. Join the course for 2 or 4 weeks, accommodation included. For more information, check out Commedia dell’Arte in Florence.
If you would like to learn the art of mask making, join us for a 2-week course where you will leave with 2 masks.
Green grass, rolling hills, black taxis, medieval castles, Dublin and full immersion in English (as well as so much more) awaits the students who joins us in Ireland for a month this summer!
The dates for the trip to Ireland will be June 28-July 22, 2015 if leaving from Boston. If leaving from Spain or another country in Europe, the date will be June 29th.
This is a unique opportunity for students who are studying English. It is a trip around Ireland with a group of American students ages 14-18, visiting the spectacular sights, learning about Irish culture and enjoying the amazing things only Ireland has to offer.

Is your child learning Chinese? Do they want to really speak the language? The best way for your child to improve his/her language skills is through immersion! Go Inspired has teamed up with Capital Mandarin and is offering a fabulous trip to China this summer for students.
Our Summer Trip to China to Learn Chinese is for students from ages 12+. It is a fully-chaperoned group taking students to China from New York, United States, from Zurich, Switzerland and Valencia, Spain for 3-4 weeks during July and August so students have a chance to learn Chinese in China in the summer.
We believe that language study is greatly enhanced by an understanding of the culture in which the language is spoken—this is what sets Capital Mandarin apart from other Chinese language schools.
Beginner to advanced students welcome! Students participating in our Summer Trip to China to Learn Chinese will have 15 language lessons a week, each lesson 50 minutes with no more than 8 students in a class. There will be afternoon activities as well as 3 excursions per week focusing on Chinese culture. The focus of this course is to provide an immersion experience for each participant. They will have an opportunity to explore and discover the exciting city of Beijing and all it has to offer as well as meet students from around the world. There will be free time and many group activities outside the classroom.
The dates for this summer are: June 27-July 25 & July 25-Aug 22, 2015 so you choose what is convenient for you.

After a very busy summer, we are now heading into Fall and are revving up for our courses in 2015. A big thanks to all of you (families, leaders, Park and Rec, Bethel High School, students, etc.) who helped make the programs so successful.
With a great summer program in the US behind us, we are looking forward to our new program in Spain this year. We will be taking a group of high school students to the beautiful coast of Spain for 3 weeks. There they will live with a family and get to know Spanish students their age. They will be doing activities and workshops to help them get to know the Spanish culture better. It will be an exciting trip that will stay in their memories forever. This will take place at the end of June to July, 2015.
We will also be continuing our summer programs in Italy.
