ESL quality guarantee
Because your language trip doesn’t only occur in the classroom, our goal at ESL is for you to have the time of your life both during class and outside the classroom. You’ll reap all the benefits of ESL’s privileged relationship with our partner schools, who will welcome you and accompany you throughout your stay with special attention because you’re coming from ESL! The thousands of online reviews by students just like you help us maintain our high quality standards. Using these highly valued student ratings, ESL recognises excellence in schools at the yearly ESL Language Travel Awards
ceremony. You can immediately see which partner schools our students love most with the ESL Certificate of Excellence
A close-knit environment
All of our partner schools share one characteristic, whether they’re schools with huge student bodies or small academies with just a couple of classrooms – they all put their students’ well-being first! A welcoming environment and dedicated staff who are available to support you 24/7 will make your language stay unforgettable. Going through the experience with you will be the new friends you’ll make, who will not only be your classmates but also your companions as you discover your new destination. By the time you leave, you’ll know all the best things to see and do in the city plus the locals’ favourite places to eat, hang out and get a dose of culture. Make the most of your experience abroad in full immersion!
Stimulating courses tailored to your level
Upon arrival, your needs will be assessed and you’ll take a level test in order to be placed in the perfect class for you. From start to finish, your learning goals will be clearly stated, your teachers will give you feedback on your progress and you’ll receive a certificate attesting to your achievement at the end of the course. You can choose to take an official exam or at the very least, progress to the next level in your language studies. As you study, you’ll enjoy perks like small class sizes, conversation-based lessons and a diversity of backgrounds, ages and nationalities among your classmates that will enrich your lessons. All of this will help improve your soft skills, heighten your cultural awareness and of course, provide you with lasting language skills to help you in all your future endeavours.
Because teachers are such a vital part of the learning process, our partner schools’ educational staff are all highly trained and experts in their field. Native speakers of their languages, your experienced teachers employ the communicative methodology so you can practise your language skills in a real-world context. Your classes will use technology to enhance your learning experience, all with the constant availability, support and evaluation from your teacher.
Your experience outside the classroom
Because your time outside of the classroom is just as important as what you learn inside the classroom, our partner schools make sure to offer a dynamic variety of leisure activities and excursions plus comfortable, modern accommodation so you and your fellow students will have a welcoming place to lay your head at the end of every day.
Wi-Fi and internet
Offering free Wi-Fi and computers with internet access for student use, you can always get online at any of our partner schools to stay connected throughout your language stay.
