September Newsletter...
 
         
   
Welcome to the September edition of the Cactus newsletter, after what we hope has been an enjoyable and linguistic summer for you. With the new school year upon us and the long days drawing to a close, thoughts are slowly turning to new academic pursuits and activities to brighten up the darker evenings.
Although we'd love to send you round the world on countless language learning ventures, one thing we're conscious of is that times are still tight for many people. With the economy as it is, a vacation can seem something of a luxury and is often one of the first things to be forfeited, at a time when you're likely to need it most.
With this in mind, we're dedicating our Fall newsletter to learning a language the most economical way possible - bringing you our cheapest locations, best tips for making a language course abroad more affordable, free things to do in some of our most popular destinations, and ways to learn a language for free from the comfort of your couch.
And to top it all off, we're throwing in a language vacation for two! Read on for details on how you could win and keep checking in for future competitions...
