Language studies abroad programs for Families: Accommodation

A home away from home... but abroad!
Accommodation is one of the things which determine whether your language holiday is a success. You should feel comfortable in your surroundings that meet your needs. You can then fully enjoy your free time after class and at the weekend together as a family during your language holiday.

Host family

This is widely regarded as part and parcel of a language holiday. Staying with local residents has many advantages:
 
  • Direct contact with a local family
  • Complete immersion in the language
  • Family meals together
  • Cultural discovery through sharing your day-to-day with a local family
  • Experiencing local hospitality in an authentic environment
  • The chance to join in on family activities (celebrations, trips)
 
Host families are carefully chosen by our partner schools and are monitored regularly to check that they are meeting all the required criteria. If you like a relaxed and family-orientated way of life, this is the ideal arrangement for you!
 
Please note that the phrase 'Host Family' does not necessarily mean a traditional family, but that the household can be made up of a retired couple, a single person or several adults. Different options will be available regarding how many members of your family can be housed with a host family. In the majority of cases, the bathroom is shared with the host family, as well as the living area and other communal rooms.
 
Accommodation with a host family is not guaranteed for large families.

Private apartment

You benefit from greater privacy in a private apartment. You and your family will be living together much like 'at home'. This means, however, you will be doing household jobs, such as cooking or cleaning the apartment.
 
The apartments have single, double and sometimes triple rooms. We can offer you accommodation that suits the needs of your family structure.
 
You will need to pay a deposit when you arrive (on average €200). This is, of course, returned at the end of the holiday if there has been no damage.

Hotel / B&B

Hotel and B&B rooms are available in certain destinations.

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!
