Vocabulary 2: Choose the correct options to complete the text.

Speaking of survival, my Kenyan pen friend, Koinet, could teach me a thing or two about that. He’s from the Maasai people, who live in the wilds of Africa. Why have I got a Kenyan pen friend? Well, I’m learning Swahili – I’ve always been interested in African languages. Actually, it’s quite exciting. I’m going out to visit him soon. My (6) departure / reservation / connection date’s less than a month away. It’s a long flight, though – about 18 hours in total. My (7) passenger / arrival / route takes me from Vancouver across the Atlantic Ocean to Amsterdam and then down through the rest of Europe into Africa to my final (8) destination / fare / connection , Nairobi Airport in Kenya’s capital city. I guess it’s not too bad though – there’s just one (9) departure / passenger / connection after all. It’ll be my first time as a (10) passenger / reservation / departure on a plane, so I’ll definitely be a little nervous – and excited.

Rainforest Adventure

Volunteers receive a certificate at the end of their holiday.

Jasmina, 17 (Germany)
‘I’ve had an amazing experience as a volunteer in Sumatra. In the last three weeks, I’ve met a lot of kids my age and I’ve been lucky enough to get close to one of the most interesting creatures in the world! I’ve spent a lot of time with orang-utans and I’ve learned many things about them and the rainforest where they live. The biggest advantage of this holiday for me was that I’ve always wanted to work with animals. The knowledge and experience I’ve gained here will definitely help me get a job.

Rainforest Adventure
Would you like to gain work experience and develop your skills during your school holidays while enjoying life in an exotic location? Why not volunteer to help us save an endangered species in the rainforest? Spend three weeks in Sumatra and help us protect the local population of orang-utans. Volunteers receive a certificate at the end of their holiday.

Jasmina, 17 (Germany)
‘I’ve had an amazing experience as a volunteer in Sumatra. In the last three weeks, I’ve met a lot of kids my age and I’ve been lucky enough to get close to one of the most interesting creatures in the world! I’ve spent a lot of time with orang-utans and I’ve learned many things about them and the rainforest where they live. The biggest advantage of this holiday for me was that I’ve always wanted to work with animals. The knowledge and experience I’ve gained here will definitely help me get a job. PS It’s well worth the price too!’

French Cuisine
Enjoy a two-week holiday in France's capital city and learn how to cook from real chefs! Mix learning to cook with sightseeing and making friends with other students from all over the world. On the last day of your holiday you will receive a certificate showing that you have attended our classes.

Casper, 15 (Croatia)
‘Learning to cook in Paris has been fantastic! Chefs Sandrine and Laurent, who’ve been our teachers for the last fortnight, have been great. They’ve taught us a wide range of French dishes, and they’ve also shown us how a restaurant kitchen works. They’re the best thing about this course. They’ve made me feel sure that I want to be a chef when I finish school.’
