Language studies abroad programs for Families: Why choose ESL?

12 Good reasons to choose ESL

1. ESL - the language holiday specialist
With 20 years of experience, we have built up a network of reputable and experienced partner schools. We can offer you a professional and skilled team.
 
2. The best schools
All our partner schools have an excellent reputation and are internationally accredited.
 
3. Exciting courses
Quality teaching takes place in a stimulating and safe multicultural environment in specific groups for children and parents. Children are supervised by qualified and committed teachers or instructors. Parents also benefit from excellent learning conditions. They can take courses or just enjoy some free time while the children are being looked after.
 
4. Large choice of attractive destinations with a choice of activities
Our partner schools offer a programme jam-packed with activities outside of the courses, whether it's for children, adults or the whole family. The school staff are there to help you organise the family trips you have planned.
 
5. A range of accommodation chosen with care
The different accommodation options offered are specifically suited to the needs of a family in order that you can better enjoy the holiday.
 
6. ESL - your partner for a tailor-made language trip
ESL takes care of your holiday from start to finish, so that you have nothing to worry about! This includes the courses, activities and accommodation – and not forgetting our team of advisers, who are always there to answer your questions! We look after your every need and are very flexible. We can even take care of flight reservations or airport transfers.
 
7. A range of programmes to suit everyone
In our course package, we offer you the opportunity to enjoy your adult course, while the children take their own, and the chance to meet up as a family again once lessons are over. If you would prefer your children to participate in the programmes of leisure activities so that you can use your free time, then choose a destination which offers a programme of leisure activities for young participants. Other destinations offer no programmes of leisure activities simply because there are so many possibilities for exploring local attractions on your own or as a family. Select your programme according to your own preferences.
 
8. Regular monitoring of our partners
We regularly monitor the schools and the programmes we offer. Each year, our team visits the schools to ensure we can always guarantee you the best value for money for your holiday.
 
9. Attractive prices
Better yet less expensive! Why miss out on a family holiday that also offers you the chance to learn a foreign language? Our programme of family language holidays are often less expensive and more rewarding than a traditional holiday and are a very attractive option which offers everyone new experiences.

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!
