    Gap Year benefits

    • After giving your career an immediate boost, the soft skills and cultural awareness that come with a longer stay abroad will last a lifetime. Employers and universities value the language and personal skills that come with spending time abroad, but perhaps the most important gains you will make are the personal ones as you learn to see life from a new perspective.

    • Whether you want to gain a particular language qualification or to extend your stay and use language skills in action, for example in a working environment, your Gap Year programme will be designed according to your personal requirements. Let us know what matters to you and we can make it happen, together. You will never have a better opportunity to become fluent in a foreign language.

    TESTIMONIALS

    Pablo Montilla

    Thanks to the assessment from ESL, I decided to travel abroad to improve my English for my future job. I decided on Toronto (Canada), because I wanted to get to know North America, and from there I could travel to other large cities thanks to the excursions with the school. From day one, ESL was always available to me and continually checked in with me. The school also helped me to integrate with the rest of my classmates and were also attentive to make sure that everything went perfectly. Without a doubt it was a unique experience that I’ll do again in order to continue learning in other parts of the world and meet more incredible people from every corner of the planet.

    Meeting people from all over the world, travelling, getting to know another culture, learning English… these are some of the thousands of positive things that I remember from my experience in Canada. My stay there was totally unforgettable. From the moment I first set foot in the country, I felt like I was home. I was living at a student house with two students from the school with whom I’ve kept up a good friendship. The OHC School makes you feel like one of them from day one. Daily activities to get to know the other students, high quality teachers, great facilities… Without a doubt, I can only say great things about my stay there. I would do it all over again a thousand times. Cheers.

    I spent a week at the ISI Dublin school. From the first moment, they encourage interaction between students and offer a wide range of activities to take part in beyond the classes, which of course added to my satisfaction with the stay in addition to having such friendly staff. The residence was just a few minutes away on foot, resulting in a pleasant stroll through one of the prettiest parts of Dublin full of traditional Irish buildings including the school itself. This, in addition to the dynamic nature of the classes, allows you to immerse yourself in the language and daily life. It was without a doubt a great experience that left me wanting more.

    P.S. Their coffee works wonders!
