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

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!
