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

María del Pilar López Oliete

My stay at TLG was one of the best decisions I took in a very long time. It was very enriching, because I was surrounded by classmates and friends of different cultures, who are now almost my family. I learned many things and I partially overcame my fear of speaking English. I have to thank my teachers, who were very patient, funny and humanly extraordinary – in particular Malika, who helped us when we had all kind of problems, in or outside the school.

My stay in Cork (more specifically, in Bishop), in August, was very good. As the days passed, all my fears about the language started fading away. I was lucky enough to find a very dynamic teacher. In the morning, we used to focus on grammar, vocabulary and reading comprehension, in a serious but also relaxed atmosphere – at my own pace.
As a beginner, I can say that – little by little, thanks to my teacher’s patience – I became more fluent and could finally communicate with her and her family. I am now able to conduct a conversation and understand 80% of it – I am still a bit slow, of course. With my teacher, I discovered beautiful spots in the region (parks, castles, restaurants, beaches). She made me love her country.

Now my only wish is to go back there, because those 2 weeks went too fast! And there are so many things I would like to dig a bit more into, to immerse myself deeper in this unique country!

My experience at France Langue exceeded all my expectations. Courses are very dynamic and focus on oral communication most of the time. The vocabulary we learn in school is very useful and topical, and we can use it on a daily basis during our stay in Paris. Workshops help us to analyse specific topics we have learned in class and to practise the language.
Teachers are very caring, dynamic and close to their students.
In 3 weeks, I did some impressive improvements. The accommodation is amazing; I live with a lovely and welcoming Parisian woman. The flat is located in a central and quiet area.
As I said, France Langue exceeded all my expectations, to the point that I would like to extend my stay in Paris!
