Happy Holidays Families!


I understand that 2020 has been incredibly challenging to students and families. That’s why I’m looking ahead to ensure our children have exciting plans on their future calendar. This year, consider giving something too big to fit in a box, or under a tree. The gift of travel is an experience that will have a positive and lasting impact on your child for years to come.


This is why I’ve decided to provide our students with a life-changing travel experience, the Grand Tour of Italy, to give them something to look forward to. If you’re still on the fence, EF has made it even easier to look ahead during the holidays. EF’s risk-free enrollment period has been extended a few more weeks (which means if you enroll by Christmas, you can cancel for any reason through 5/1/2021 and receive a 100% refund).


These are the last few days to take advantage of this once in a lifetime opportunity while it’s available, and while I still have some spots left on my tour. I truly believe that travel is one of the best gifts (and greatest experiences) you could give your child, especially at the end of this long and challenging year.

You can enroll on my tour online at www.eftours.com/2429847AM or call 800-665-5364 and reference our trip number, 2429847AM


Have a wonderful holiday season,
