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

TESTIMONIALS

A two-month language learning trip to sunny Spain, with accommodation in a host family and a content-rich course at a real Spanish school. That is what ESL offered me, all of this well-organized, completely hassle-free without any problems. The school welcomed me very warmly, with many different nationalities represented. The only pity was that during my study period (in the fall) there were fewer students of my own age, so Nerja is especially recommendable during the summer months for people in their twenties and thirties!. My host family was very open-minded, clean and sympathetic, I could not have wished for a better stay. One thing is for sure: I will definitely go back to Nerja!

Last summer I spent 5 weeks in Vancouver to improve my English and it was an incredible experience.
Apart from the fact that the country is truly amazing, EC Vancouver welcomed me in the best possible way.
Upon arrival, all the new people went to have dinner together and visit the city, which means that you’re not alone for long; in my case, I met a group of 10 people that day, and we spent the whole stay together! (and we are still in touch!). The nationality mix and the learning method gave me a lot, and the school staff recommended us the best excursions in British Columbia (Victoria, Rockies Mountains and much more). So many good memories; I want to go back!

At the beginning of November, I went to Australia for a 7-week course, but then I saw that I was progressing so fast that I decided to stay 5 weeks longer; so in the end, I spent 3 months there. It was an incredibly rich experience, thanks to my English improvement but also to the people I met there, coming from Colombia, Brazil, Spain, South Korea, Japan, Chile and more. The school is in Brisbane’s city centre and has a nice view on King George Square. My teachers were really good, the environment was pleasant and I really started to love the language. I was lucky because I was the only French in my class, so I could speak English all the time. This is definitely one of the best schools in Brisbane if you want to improve your English while enjoying the good weather every day.
