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

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.
