4-WEEK IMMERSION PACKAGES IN BALI
Private Immersion Programs for 1-4 Learners
All LSI IMMERSION PROGRAMS IN BALI ARE BASED IN OR AROUND THE CITY OF UBUD,
the cultural, artistic and spiritual centre of the island.
From the flower-petal offerings placed everywhere, to the processions of joyfully-garbed locals shutting down roads, to the elaborate temple ceremonies, to the enchanting traditional dances, to the otherworldly gamelan music played everywhere, almost everything in Ubud has spiritual meaning and leaves you with a lasting impression of reverence, peace and tranquility.
Add to this Ubud's marvellous restaurants, exquisite lodgings, and world-renown spas and wellness centres, and you've got a place where days become weeks and weeks become months.
LSI'S LANGUAGE INSTRUCTION IS DELIVERED AT YOUR LOCATION IN UBUD.
Just let us know where you're staying and your Instructor/Mentor will come to you.
You'll wake up in Ubud each day and spend your mornings studying Bahasa Indonesia with your own private Mentor on the terrace of your serene Bali accommodation, surrounded by lush tropical gardens overlooking magnificent rice terraces.
Booking Ubud Accommodations appropriate for Language Instruction
ALL INDOEXCURSIONS LANGUAGE INSTRUCTION IS 'PRIVATE'
(1 to 4 learners with 1 dedicated Instructor/Mentor).
Language instruction starts each morning after breakfast, and is delivered on the terrace of your lodging.
Lessons are 3 hours - 9am to 12pm, Monday through Friday.
During lesson hours, you're free to study as intensively as you desire. If you're a rather "serious" student (or group of students) and wish to focus on your language studies for a full 3 hours each morning, that's great. But, if you prefer to take things a little slower, building in regular breaks for tropical drinks and dips in the pool, that's fine too. Just let us know what you hope to achieve and we'll be ready to respond to your specific needs.
If you choose to undertake a LANGUAGE ONLY Program (See 'Itineraries' below), your Program will NOT include a 'cultural component.' You'll have your afternoons and evenings free.
If you choose a LANGUAGE AND CULTURE Program . . .
After you've completed your language lessons each weekday morning, you'll break for lunch.
Following lunch, you'll be picked up by your Tour Guide, and you'll hit the road to spend the remainder of the day exploring Bali and partaking in all the cultural activities it has to offer.
Over the course of your program, your Bali Guide will take you off the well-trodden path for a true "insider journey" across the island - a journey filled with opportunities that would normally only be available to natives. You'll venture to intricately carved temples rarely visited by tourists; you'll stop at villages where locals will prepare you meals whilst excited youngsters perform ritual dances; you'll visit traditional spice plantations - you'll experience "authentic Bali" and discover the true essence of the "Island of the Gods."
Your guide will structure your daily cultural activities around those things which interest you most. Maybe you'd like to learn to cook Balinese food or maybe you'd like to experience a traditional Balinese massage or spa treatment. Perhaps you'd enjoy some yoga sessions or some traditional Balinese dance classes. What about learning to play the gamelan or learning how to make Hindu offerings for the gods? Have you ever thought of visiting a guru for some spiritual mentoring?
The options are limitless, and the choices are, ultimately, yours to make. Your Guide will do everything in her/his power to meet your desires and ensure that every day of your immersion program is magical for you.
At 6pm daily, your tour guide will return you to your accommodations. You'll have each evening free to dine at one of Ubud's amazing world-renown restaurants and/or take in a fascinating Balinese dance or musical performance at a local palace or temple.
