About the programmes

Teaching takes place in the mornings. Each member of the family studies in a group that matches their age, language level and needs. In the afternoon, you can either spend time together as a family or enjoy the range of activities that are offered for each age group.

Everything is arranged according to the specific needs of the family group, including accommodation. 

Working towards the same language goals can unify a group, and ensure a memorable holiday!

TESTIMONIALS

To perfect my French language skills I contacted ESL, who quickly helped me figure out the best options. A friend of mine had shared with me her own experiences with ESL, which made me decide to contact this organisation as well. First I visited their website which is very well organised and where you can actually find all the essential information you are looking for. Then I called them for an appointment and agreed on meeting them in their Antwerp office. Everything went pretty smoothly and we were immediately given all necessary details and explanations. Once in Tours it all started! I can really recommend the "Institut de Touraine"! The teachers are very enthusiastic and its location is excellent. I myself started at a very low level, but after three months I had acquired a very considerable knowledge of the French language. To conclude, I would like to say a few words about Tours itself, which is also very important. It is a historic town situated quite nicely between the Loire and Cher rivers. I really enjoyed the many castles and beautiful scenery alongside these two rivers. My French host family was incredibly friendly / helpful and provided everything else I needed. In short, an unforgettable experience!

I went to London for 4 weeks at BSC London and it was the best experience of my life. I travelled alone, met new people, built relationships and lived extraordinary moments. I had the chance to visit every corner of London. Thanks the high-quality course, I improved my English; teachers at school were helpful and very approachable.

I don’t regret choosing ESL; they advised me very well and helped me in the organization of my project!

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!
