ESL schools guarantee the same excellent standards for accommodation as they do for teaching. We take great pleasure in helping you find the most suitable accommodation for you.


Host family


Many students prefer to live with a host family during their stay because it allows you to practise the language after class and discover English family life! Staying in a single room, you will be provided with half-board and your laundry will be washed weekly. Twin rooms are also possible during summer (or year-round if you are travelling with a friend). Host families are carefully selected by our partner school and generally live around 10-40 minutes by bus away or even within walking distance. Free internet access is guaranteed outside high season. With the "superior host family" option, you will have the use of a single room equipped with a TV, a large bed and a private bathroom.

Students enrolled in the Young Adult Package will receive a single room and full board. Your meals will consist of breakfast and dinner with your host seven days a week, and lunch either at the school or with your host (depending on your location).
