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


This is the ideal accommodation option for total language immersion. The families, which are carefully selected by our school, generally live around 20-30 minutes on foot or by bus from the school. Students stay in single rooms with half-board. If you're travelling with another student, you can request a double room. Staying with a host family will allow you to discover English culture from the inside and to practise the language in a friendly environment!
