Minimum age

Private courses are ideal to achieve specific objectives. They are particularly suitable for professionals who need to acquire language skills specific to their fields of activity, for students who wish to prepare for an examination, and for anyone wishing to broaden their knowledge of Swedish to meet their specific needs. In your teacher’s home, you will benefit from unique learning conditions. For instance, discussions over meals or at other times will be conducted exclusively in the target language. Living with your teacher implies that every single moment will be put to good use to reach your objectives, not only during the lessons, but also whenever you are with your teacher during the day. You will experience full immersion, without a chance to speak in your mother tongue. Your teacher will be there to help you with your difficulties, at your own pace, since you will be his one and only student (unless you choose the programme for two students: see options).

Programme for two students in the teacher's home
Students who choose this programme arrive with a person of their choice. They must both be at the same language level, have the same objectives and arrive on the same dates because they will be taking lessons together. There is a 20% reduction for each student.

Special cocooning for under 18s (compulsory up to 13 years)
The teacher and their family spend a reasonable amount of time with the students, as they would with a friend staying with them, but they do not necessarily accompany the students at all times. The Cocooning option guarantees the continued presence of the teacher or of an adult member of their family in the house when the student is there.

Business language programme
This programme is adapted for professionals who need to acquire a specialised vocabulary (business, medicine, law, computing, architecture, tourism, etc.).

Students aged 15 and under must take 2-way transfers unless we are notified that they are accompanied by their parents.

Airport transfers are available from the nearest airport to the teacher’s place of residence.

Fantastisch! Sowohl die Lehrerin, als auch die Stadt waren perfekt gewählt! Ich habe meinen Sprachkurs sehr genossen; der Unterricht wurde abwechslungsreich gestaltet, auf meine Wünsche ist bestens eingegangen worden. Es ist nun mein dritter Kurs mit ESL, ich kann jedem nur empfehlen sich ins Abenteur des Sprachen Lernens im Ausland zu stürzen Alles bestens! Sehr zentrale Lage, gut erreichbar, viele Cafes in der nahen Umgebung Hatte Privatunterricht, habe mich in den Pausen aber gerne im Gemeinschaftsraum aufgehalten. Das Personal der Schule ist sehr hilfsbereit Da ich mit Familie angereist bin, haben wir uns unweit von Edinburgh ein Haus gemietet. Zugverbindungen in die Stadt waren prima

2 Sprachkurse, einmal Schweden und einmal Edinburgh, jeweils Privatunterricht Standard, 15 Stunden. Ich war beide Male in einer Privatunterkunft; beide Lehrer ( Anitta Sunell/Schweden + Carol Kirkwood/Edinburgh) waren fantastisch!Unterricht abwechslungsreich, mir wurde beide Male sehr viel von Stadt und Umgebung gezeigt! Fantastisch; hatte Privatunterricht, der Unterricht wurde abwechslungsreich gestaltet, zusätzlich wurden Ausflüge unternommen und ich durfte viel über Land und Kultur erfahren. Vor Unterrichtsbeginn gingen wir immer am Strand spazieren, um dann voller Elan in den Unterricht zu starten. Würde ich sofort wieder machen und kann es nur empfehlen! Schneller kann man sich in einer Sprache nicht verbessern! Da ich mit Familie gereist bin, haben wir uns ein Haus am Meer gemietet und waren Selbstversorger.

Do you think you've made progress?
« Ja; bin als Anfänger in Schweden angekommen und mit B1 Niveau gefahren. Dadurch, dass ich Privatunterricht hatte und mich immer, gewollt, oder ungewollt, mit der Materie befassen mußte, habe ich innerhalb kürzester Zeit grandiose Fortschritte gemacht; mehr als eigentlich erwartet. »
School highlights
« Das was mir wichtig erschien wurde genauestens trainiert; außerdem wurde auf verschiedene Interessensgebiete eingegangen und ich wurde bei Kursende mit schwedischen Kurzkrimis belohnt. »
Top tips
« In Südschweden gibt es viel zu sehen; die Lehrkraft ansprechen auf alles, sie kann einem fantastisch weiterhelfen und organisiert auch Ausflüge, wenn gewünscht. Ich habe alles rausgeholt was möglich war, um ( für mich) besten Ergebnis zu kommen. »

Durch den privaten Unterricht beim Lehrer zu Hause konnte ich von einem, optimal auf meine Bedürfnisse zugeschnittenen Unterricht profitieren. Ausserdem konnte ich nebenbei auch in die schwedische Kultur eintauchen und bei verschiedenen Ausflügen und Sprachcafés Land und Leute kennen lernen. Der Privatunterricht beim Lehrer zu Hause ist zwar ein bisschen kostenspieliger, aber es ist eine super Möglichkeit innerhalb kurzer Zeit Fortschritte zu erzielen. Für mich waren die 4 Wochen eine geniale Erfahrung und ich würde es jederzeit wieder machen. Kann es nur weiterempfehlen.

« Ich habe auf jeden Fall Fortschritte erzielt, da ich in Deutschland keine Möglichkeit habe Schwedisch zu sprechen. Allein der Aufenthalt bei der schwedischen Familie hat da schon sehr geholfen. Der Unterricht war sehr gut für die Grammatik. In diesem Bereich habe ich große Fortschritte gemacht. Auch die anderen Lehrbücher waren gut. »
School highlights
« Am besten hat mir gefallen, dass ich Schwedisch sprechen konnte und musste. Der Mann meiner Lehrerin konnt Deutsch, aber wir haben nie Deutsch miteinander gesprochen. Sehr schön! »

ESL in the teacher's home
Duration: 4 weeks

I enjoyed my stay in Stockholm very much. I made rapid progress in Swedish thanks to my teacher and its great teaching method. I enrolled in the "Swedish home and learning" programme, which consists in living in your teacher’s home. It is a great option as you get the opportunity to study on a daily basis and learn more about Swedish culture. This language study trip really was an amazing experience which will stay with me forever. I can only recommend this programme as well as this beautiful town where I would like to go back.
