Italian courses abroad
We’re proud to partner with first-class language schools offering a wide range of courses. Whatever your age, goals and level, we have a course for you!
It’s a fact: there’s no more efficient way to learn a language than using it and being exposed to it in different contexts every day over a length of time. This is precisely what our general courses offer you – the opportunity to receive outstanding language lessons as well as endless opportunities to put your new skills into practice. And that’s how you cement knowledge!
Every summer, young learners face a decision: Will they study in preparation for school, or will they go on a holiday and enjoy their freedom? Through our summer language courses, they can do both!
During a summer camp with ESL, students will travel to one of our gorgeous locations to learn a language of their choice in a safe and stimulating environment, full of other young learners from around the world.
Students will spend their mornings learning their language through immersive daily lessons and their afternoons and weekends making friends, playing sports, and exploring their surroundings on fun, supervised excursions.
This is your chance to turn your language course into a language holiday!
Our Plus courses offer the opportunity to balance language classes with the regular practice of a sport or a specific activity included in the program. Thanks to our cultural extras, including cooking, music, dance, filmmaking, sustainable development and yoga, among others, you can combine language learning with an authentic cultural experience.
Speaking a foreign language – or several – will advance your professional career in more ways than one. Aside from providing you with an added value that will make your CV stand out to employers, you will maximise your job-seeking possibilities by being able to work in different countries and through different languages.
