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


Being immersed in a country’s culture is without a doubt one of the best ways to learn the language. Living with a host family means getting to know the way of life of Lyon locals from the inside – their food and customs – while having an enriching experience. It's also your chance to practise French daily in an authentic context. Your host will be carefully selected by our partner school. Living around 10-50 minutes from the school, you will stay in a single or double room with breakfast only or half-board provided.
