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

Pablo Montilla

Thanks to the assessment from ESL, I decided to travel abroad to improve my English for my future job. I decided on Toronto (Canada), because I wanted to get to know North America, and from there I could travel to other large cities thanks to the excursions with the school. From day one, ESL was always available to me and continually checked in with me. The school also helped me to integrate with the rest of my classmates and were also attentive to make sure that everything went perfectly. Without a doubt it was a unique experience that I’ll do again in order to continue learning in other parts of the world and meet more incredible people from every corner of the planet.

Meeting people from all over the world, travelling, getting to know another culture, learning English… these are some of the thousands of positive things that I remember from my experience in Canada. My stay there was totally unforgettable. From the moment I first set foot in the country, I felt like I was home. I was living at a student house with two students from the school with whom I’ve kept up a good friendship. The OHC School makes you feel like one of them from day one. Daily activities to get to know the other students, high quality teachers, great facilities… Without a doubt, I can only say great things about my stay there. I would do it all over again a thousand times. Cheers.

I spent a week at the ISI Dublin school. From the first moment, they encourage interaction between students and offer a wide range of activities to take part in beyond the classes, which of course added to my satisfaction with the stay in addition to having such friendly staff. The residence was just a few minutes away on foot, resulting in a pleasant stroll through one of the prettiest parts of Dublin full of traditional Irish buildings including the school itself. This, in addition to the dynamic nature of the classes, allows you to immerse yourself in the language and daily life. It was without a doubt a great experience that left me wanting more.

P.S. Their coffee works wonders!
