Language studies abroad programs for Families: Useful information

Your tailor-made language holiday

Our programmes are intended for families with children. The teaching approach and services provided by the school are specially designed for families travelling together, so that each family member can get the most from their holiday. We will have something that meets your requirements, whether you want to travel as a couple or with your children. It's perfectly possible for grandparents or other members of the family to join the group or to stand in for parents.
 
A family language holiday is a unique chance to be immersed in an international context, while maintaining a certain family privacy. Adults can devote themselves to their language course programme in the mornings, safe in the knowledge that their children are being looked after by responsible teachers. Afternoons are mostly taken up with each age group's respective activities. And in the evenings, everyone meets up again to share their highlights from the day!
 
In short, a family language holiday with ESL is a chance to:
Enjoy a fantastic, active family holiday
Develop everyone's linguistic knowledge
Get to know a new culture
Make exciting discoveries
Meet participants from around the world in an international environment

The services we offer

The courses 
Each member of the family will take part in a course that corresponds to their age group and level. On the first day, an evaluation test will take place to determine the class that best suits each person. Your lessons will be focused on communication and the acquisition of new skills. At our reputable, experienced language schools, course content is stimulating and fun and will allow each person to make progress under the best possible circumstances.
 
Accommodation 

ESL has selected accommodation that's especially suitable for the needs of families, and different accommodation options are available in each school. By far, the two most preferred types of accommodation are renting private apartments or staying with a host family. However, we can also offer you hotels or bed & breakfasts.
 
Leisure 

The destinations we've chosen offer a huge variety of sporting and cultural activities, whether for children, parents or even for the whole family in some destinations.

ESL will take care of your holiday from start to finish! We'll be happy to organise the reservation of your flights at a competitive price. If you wish, a transfer service can meet you upon arrival and take you to your accommodation.

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.
