The students

Minimum age
18 years

One-to-one tuition is ideal for achieving specific objectives. It is particularly suitable for professionals who need to develop specific language skills in their field, for students wishing to update their language knowledge and for all those who wish to prepare for an exam individually.

Regardless of your age and occupation, language courses in the teacher’s home will allow you to improve your English skills in a targeted way and make rapid progress. Whether you wish to develop your speaking skills, overcome a personal block, or find a way to learn English at your own pace, through a privileged relationship with your private teacher, this programme gives you the opportunity to make a lot of progress in a minimum amount of time.

Different teachers are specialists in different areas, often depending on their background, so you can customise the course as much as you like.

Living with your teacher means that you will make the most of every moment in order to achieve your objectives, not only during lessons but also during the rest of the time you will spend together. You will have neither the opportunity to speak in your mother tongue nor to withdraw from this total immersion as conversations around meals, activities and social contacts you will have with the members of his/her family will take place exclusively, and naturally, in English.

The “one-to-two” option enables you to book a private course with a friend or a colleague with the same language level (see options ad extras).

To optimise the course content, the programme is entirely tailor-made, analysed and designed prior to your arrival. Lessons are given all year round, even at Christmas, New Year or Easter.

Mon séjour c'est très bien passé. Le professeur et sa femme m'ont très bien accueilli. J'étais très bien installé. Le professeur m'a fait un programme personnalisé. Il a pris le temps de me corriger afin que je puisse m'améliorer.Nous avons abordé des sujets intéressants, politique, organisation du pays, histoire, famille royal...etc.J'ai eu la chance d'être dans cette famille. Ils ont beaucoup d'expériences, une grande tolérance et une grande ouverture d'esprit. Le professeur est musicien et c'étais agréable pour moi de partager sa passion.

Professeure très gentille, curieuse et enthousiaste, qui s'est adaptée à mes objectifs dans son enseignement. Ensemble, nous avons pu discuter de sujets très variés, et j'ai découvert grâce à elle et son mari, également très gentil, de nombreux aspects de la vie anglaise (promenades à Cambridge, tea time, visites de musées...)

ESL at the teacher's, London
Duration: 2 weeks

I went on a language stay in London as part of the ESL programme. I was entirely satisfied with the programme for various reasons. First of all, as a professional working full time, I have very little availability to take some time off; the ESL programme allowed me to make massive progress in a very short time. Secondly, the possibility to set choice criteria to find the teacher that suited my expectations and the private lessons allowed me to fulfil my specific requirements. And the fact of living at the teacher’s offers many benefits: speaking English 24/7, discovering English habits, being provided with food and accommodation, developing a complicity with the teacher and getting many tips to visit London. The classes took place in the morning, which allowed me to visit London in the afternoon. As a contemporary art lover, I visited many very interesting museums. I also strolled down the streets and did some shopping! London is a city that can be of interest to anybody as it has a lot to offer and traveling around is easy! If I had to do it again I would do it exactly the same way!

At the teacher's, Colchester
Duration: 2 weeks

I chose to go to England for two weeks with the ESL programme because I needed to quickly improve my English and I had very little availability. If you are in the same situation, I strongly recommend you this programme! There are many benefits: we are totally immersed in the English culture and language during our stay and the private lessons allow us to make progress at an astounding speed! Otherwise, the organisation of the classes also allows us to visit the city or the region in which we live, which is really pleasant. Personally, my stay was unforgettable. My host family was very friendly and we talked a lot. They made me discover the area. Thanks to them, I made great progress in English and I discovered many things about England. To sum it up, ESL offers a very comprehensive programme. If I had to do it again, I would without hesitating!

My experience with Stephen was the best thing that's ever happened to me. The classes were very interesting and included different types of vocabulary, grammar, speaking, writing and listening. The classes flew by and I learned a lot. I stayed with the perfect family, with the teacher's two great daughters and son. The food was very good and the service was excellent. They were always checking on me to see if I was missing something. The place was well located because all the towns were close by. For me, I would rate this family ten out of ten!
