Language studies abroad programs for Families: Our programmes

A holiday for everyone!

Our partner schools offer language courses for the whole family on our language studies abroad programmes which are equally suitable for both children and adults 

Courses for children

We offer you options tailored to each age group according to the destination and the language.
 
Programmes:
 
3 to 7 years old
These courses for very young children provide the right environment to stimulate an interest for foreign languages. A fun approach to the language is combined with a large number of activities. The motto is to learn while having fun! Everything is supervised by teachers or sports instructors.
 
8 to 12 years old
Juniors learn to integrate into a group made up of pupils from around the world and take language courses with other international students. The learning experience is always fun and varied. The extracurricular activities offered in schools add to the learning process by providing further practice of the language.
 
13 to 17 years old
Teenagers develop their linguistic knowledge and can develop in an international context. The activities organised by the school both after class and during the weekend give them an opportunity to meet up together and practise the language in a relaxed atmosphere with young people of the same age while being supervised by responsible adults. In some schools, 13 to 17 year olds can sign up for intensive courses, which considerably accelerate the learning process and lead to rapid progress.

Courses for adults

Within our family language studies abroad programmes' framework, adults can choose the courses which suit them from the options offered by our partner schools.
 
Standard
20 hours of classes a week, which generally take place in the morning. This allows you to follow a programme of activities offered by the school, to explore where you are staying on your own or to meet up with the children and enjoy some free time together.
 
Intensive
The intensive course consists of 25 to 30 lessons a week, some of which take place in the afternoon. The learning experience, as for the standard course, is communication orientated. In the afternoon, the programme offers conversation classes or a choice of topics. It is ideal for making rapid progress.
Please note that certain lessons on the intensive course take place in the afternoon and may not coordinate with having to meet up with children in the afternoon.
 
Business
You develop your level of language, your ease of expression in professional life and the acquisition of language skills for your work. This programme is combined with the general language course.
 
Individual
You benefit from private teaching tailored to your individual needs. The teacher is at your disposal and you learn what you really need to know and develop at your own pace. For this, your timetable is arranged according to your own availability.

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.
