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

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!

My time at Shafston College has been wonderful. The school is like a family - it is small and comfortable. Meeting students from other countries has been very enjoyable - learning their customs and sometimes their languages. The teachers take care of the students - I would not have passed my Cambridge course without their support and extra help. The administration staff were amazing and I have had a great time and learnt a lot on the Gold Coast.

To perfect my French language skills I contacted ESL, who quickly helped me figure out the best options. A friend of mine had shared with me her own experiences with ESL, which made me decide to contact this organisation as well. First I visited their website which is very well organised and where you can actually find all the essential information you are looking for. Then I called them for an appointment and agreed on meeting them in their Antwerp office. Everything went pretty smoothly and we were immediately given all necessary details and explanations. Once in Tours it all started! I can really recommend the "Institut de Touraine"! The teachers are very enthusiastic and its location is excellent. I myself started at a very low level, but after three months I had acquired a very considerable knowledge of the French language. To conclude, I would like to say a few words about Tours itself, which is also very important. It is a historic town situated quite nicely between the Loire and Cher rivers. I really enjoyed the many castles and beautiful scenery alongside these two rivers. My French host family was incredibly friendly / helpful and provided everything else I needed. In short, an unforgettable experience!
