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 want to travel as a couple or alone with your children. It is 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, whilst maintaining a certain family privacy. Adults can devote themselves to their language course programme in the morning, safe in the knowledge that their children are being looked after for by conscientious 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. An evaluation test will take place on the first day to find the class that will best suit each person. The on-site teaching will be focused on communication and the acquisition of skills. All the language schools are reputable and experienced. Course content is stimulating and fun, and will allow each person to make progress in the best possible circumstances.

TESTIMONIALS

Andrea Quattrone

I decided to go on a language trip to Newcastle upon Tyne with ESL and now I can say that it was one of the best choices I have ever made. I learned about ESL online; at first, I was very impressed by their website’s precision, and then, by the staff’s availability and professionalism. They were all extremely helpful and precise in clarifying all my doubts!

In the beginning, I went on this trip just to improve my English knowledge and skills, but it soon became one of the best ways to strengthen incredible relationships. I am still very close to some of the people I met during my stay and I really would like to develop these friendships in the future and take them as good excuses to travel more.

Anyone can say that England is a truly unique country, but going there is the only way to deeply understand this statement. The habits, the breakfast, the buildings… there are so many things to discover. And British people are so enthusiastic that they make you feel warm even in a place that isn’t!

The weekend excursions were my favourite thing! Edinburgh, the Lake District, Alnwick Castle (Harry Potter’s one!)… The moments I spent in these places were truly unforgettable!

Learning French at the Institut Européen de Français was a great experience. I refreshed my French and got ready for my third Erasmus term. Classes are interactive and practical. Life in Montpellier is quiet, but – as it’s a student town – there is always something to do.

In October, I took an English course in Byron Bay, a small city in Australia, in the region of New South Wales. This experience was absolutely incredible. Byron is a very special place; the pace of life is relaxed, people are really nice and the surroundings are amazing. I spent most of my free time at the beach, where I could see dolphins and whales, only a few meters away from the coast. The main sport here is surf, so even if you’ve never tried, you have to give it a go. At night, there are many bars with live music. The school is very welcoming and all teachers are always helpful. I recommend Byron Bay as a destination, as it’s really similar to paradise! You will learn English whilst feeling constantly on holiday!
