Language studies abroad programs for Families: Activities and leisure

Learn while having fun!

Leisure time is what 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 meet the local population. This is the part of family language holidays that you'll fall in love with!
 
In certain destinations, such as Florida or Ireland or in cities like Málaga or Brighton, you and your family will explore places and attractions which are not to be missed. There's 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 children and the other for adults. These activities are made up of sports, arts and crafts, games or cultural visits. The trips are a chance for participants to really explore the host country, region or city.
 
These free time activities are the perfect opportunity to practise the language in a relaxed environment. Adults and children, either together or each in their own group, get to know the area and local culture in-depth. Your language holiday will be enriched and you'll create a bond with the country, whether you follow a specific programme of leisure activities or explore as a family.
 
Young students are supervised by experienced leaders for all leisure activities and trips during dedicated activity programmes. In the afternoons and sometimes in the evenings, the leaders coordinate and supervise different activities and ensure that everything runs smoothly. Sporting activities are supervised and run by qualified instructors.

TESTIMONIALS

Carlos Alonso Rodríguez

Galway was one of the best experiences of my life. It’s a small but incredibly lively city, and it’s impossible to get bored there. It has all the atmosphere of a university town, and every night, there’s something to do, like the salsa nights on Wednesdays at Monroe’s and Fridays at The Front Door. The people there are really friendly and try to help you as much as they can. I stayed with a host family, and they treated me as if I were their own son.

I would also like to mention the Atlantic language school. I had an incredible 8 months there, and every week you have the chance to meet new people. I made lifelong friends, and today I’m still in touch with people from Brazil, Italy and South Korea, to name a few.

If I had the opportunity to go back, I wouldn’t hesitate for a second.

My one-to-one language stay at Mr & Mrs Smith’s home in Worthing was very good. The couple is very nice and helpful. From Monday to Friday, in the morning I had a 3-hour lesson (often more than 3 hours) with few breaks, and in the evening I had to do some homework in my bedroom (I requested it!). In the afternoon, Tony and his wife Anne would have me visit the surroundings and keep me busy. They are very nice and they welcomed me into their family life as if I were a real member. Their home is simple but comfortable: I had my own big room (around 15m2) facing the garden, and it was very quiet. Tony and Anne were very careful with the food quality (they like organic products), so I ate very well the whole time; Anne likes to cook for her guests and tries to satisfy everyone’s taste.

In a nutshell, I am very happy about this experience: I improved my English in the best conditions and discovered the surrounding region.

My stay in Exeter was a beautiful experience both on the personal level as well as on the language learning level.

At ESL, they advised me very well in Valencia. With highly personal service and great organisation, they were always making sure that my trip met my expectations. Both my host family and the GLOBE school were of the highest quality.

Of course, I would go back to ESL again for its amazing service and professionalism.
