Language studies abroad programs for Families: Accommodation

A home from home...but abroad!
Accommodation is one of the things which determine whether your language holiday is a success. You should feel comfortable in 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 and staying with local residents has many advantages:
 
  • Direct contact with a local family
  • Complete immersion in a language
  • Family meals together
  • Cultural discovery through sharing the day-to-day with a local family
  • Experiencing local hospitality in an authentic environment
  • The chance to join in with 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 older people, 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 lounge 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 composition.
 
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

Hannelore V.

Bournemouth is a pleasant city with a nice beach, lots of sports facilities and beautiful gardens. My two-weeks stay was a great experience. I took classes at Kings. This school has a very good reputation and its teaching staff is very professional and friendly. Here I was able to practise my English with native speakers. I find it important to use my English in real-life situations since the language is becoming increasingly important internationally and in interdisciplinary contexts. I stayed with a British host family, something I really recommend. In retrospect, I would even recommend attending a summer school at a younger age, for instance, during one's last high-school year. ESL really helped me along in my decision-making and I gained great confidence in this organization. I had a most unforgettable experience and would not hesitate repeating it!

This has been such an incredible new experience for me… it’s surpassed my expectations and I’m hardly ever home! I’m really liking the course at St. Giles International. My teacher is pretty energetic which is really nice because it livens up the class and helps you feel less embarrassed to speak up.

New York offers so many cultural and entertainment options. I participate in as many of the activities organised by the school as I can; for example, we went to the Atlanta Braves vs. New York Mets baseball game, and I thought it was something interesting and different.

I wanted to study here at Kings to improve not only my level of general English, but also my knowledge of legal English. Holding a degree both in business administration and management and in law, I believe that studying here is an opportunity to further my legal career.

On one hand, during the classes we learned a considerable amount of new terms and vocabulary, which are clearly important from many points of view: from the perspective of someone seeking to pass a specific exam or to someone who simply wishes to improve their CV or learn general English for daily life.

On the other hand, the shared apartments that belong to Kings are just a few minutes away and the perfect convenience for someone interested in studying here. In addition to its privileged nearby location and having every necessary service, the living spaces are new and perfectly equipped for daily use.
