We recommend that participants stay around 1-2 days after their course ends as there is a graduation ceremony held on the last day of class. That said, if the course finishes on Friday, we recommend that participants stay at least till Sunday. If the course ends on Tuesday, participants should stay around at least till Thursday. In fact, housing is included 2 days after the program ends for participants who have booked their host family or apartment accommodation with us.
