Language studies abroad programs for Families: Activities and leisure

Learn while having fun!

Leisure time is the aspect which will bring the family together most frequently during the course of their language holiday. After language classes, you have the opportunity to explore your destination and new surroundings and to meet the local population. This is the side of family language holidays that you will fall in love with!
 
In certain destinations, such as Florida or Ireland, or in some cities such as Málaga or Brighton, you and your family will explore places and attractions which cannot to be missed. There is no need here for a programme of leisure activities, as everything is within easy reach!
 
In some destinations, two separate programmes of leisure activities are on offer, with one specifically for youngsters and the other for adults. These activities are made up of sport, art activities, games or cultural visits. The trips are a chance for participants to really explore the host country, region or city.
 
Sport and leisure, culture and meeting up with others - these are the times when there is a chance to practise the language in a relaxed environment. Adults and children, together or each in their own group, get to know the particular aspects of the area and the local culture. Your language holiday will be enriched and you will establish a bond with the country, whether you follow a specific programme of leisure activities, or whether you explore around as a family.
 
Young students are supervised by experienced leaders for all leisure activities and trips during dedicated activity programmes. In the afternoon and sometimes in the evening, the leaders coordinate and supervise different activities and ensure that everything runs smoothly. Sporting activities are supervised and run by qualified instructors.

TESTIMONIALS

A two-month language learning trip to sunny Spain, with accommodation in a host family and a content-rich course at a real Spanish school. That is what ESL offered me, all of this well-organized, completely hassle-free without any problems. The school welcomed me very warmly, with many different nationalities represented. The only pity was that during my study period (in the fall) there were fewer students of my own age, so Nerja is especially recommendable during the summer months for people in their twenties and thirties!. My host family was very open-minded, clean and sympathetic, I could not have wished for a better stay. One thing is for sure: I will definitely go back to Nerja!

Last summer I spent 5 weeks in Vancouver to improve my English and it was an incredible experience.
Apart from the fact that the country is truly amazing, EC Vancouver welcomed me in the best possible way.
Upon arrival, all the new people went to have dinner together and visit the city, which means that you’re not alone for long; in my case, I met a group of 10 people that day, and we spent the whole stay together! (and we are still in touch!). The nationality mix and the learning method gave me a lot, and the school staff recommended us the best excursions in British Columbia (Victoria, Rockies Mountains and much more). So many good memories; I want to go back!

At the beginning of November, I went to Australia for a 7-week course, but then I saw that I was progressing so fast that I decided to stay 5 weeks longer; so in the end, I spent 3 months there. It was an incredibly rich experience, thanks to my English improvement but also to the people I met there, coming from Colombia, Brazil, Spain, South Korea, Japan, Chile and more. The school is in Brisbane’s city centre and has a nice view on King George Square. My teachers were really good, the environment was pleasant and I really started to love the language. I was lucky because I was the only French in my class, so I could speak English all the time. This is definitely one of the best schools in Brisbane if you want to improve your English while enjoying the good weather every day.
