ESL advantages

A language study stay must be well-organised and must precisely meet your expectations, your objectives and your personal wishes. For this reason, the advice of professionals may be decisive. Do not hesitate to call us for telephone advice or to make an appointment in order to come to discuss your project. We make additional documentation available to you, we explain the differences between the schools which interest you, we answer all of your questions and we calculate the prices of the options you have chosen. Please note: these appointments are free and imply no obligation on your behalf.

Possibility to pay in foreign currency

As we exclusively propose the original prices of our partners, we offer you the possibility to pay in foreign currency. Otherwise, we invoice in swiss francs (or in euro), according to the current exchange rate.

Personalised price offers in CHF or in Euros

Documents for obtaining a visa

Do I need a visa? What is the procedure? Where must I make the visa request? ESL will guide you during your administrative steps and will provide you will the documents necessary for obtaining your visa.

Free evaluation of your language level

The basic academic service we propose consists of integrating a class which corresponds to the level of language knowledge of each participant. This is vital in order to feel at ease and to progress in a consistent manner. It is also what will make the course effective and interesting. Consequently, all of the schools offer an evaluation test during the first day. ESL also proposes this service during a consultancy interview, if you so wish. It is very useful when you wish to take a certificate preparation course for which it is necessary to have a specified minimum level.

Free flights & special offers

Thanks to the professional relationships we maintain within the travel industry, we regularly offer free flights to some locations. At any time of the year, book a 12-, 24- or 36-week language course in a number of destinations in Europe and the USA, and get free return flights offered by ESL. New special offers are added to our website throughout the year so visit regularly and contact us to find out more.

Free exam cancellation insurance

Ideally and for practical reasons, it is necessary to enrol for a language study stay in advance (flight, visa, accommodation). Numerous students find themselves held up, whilst awaiting exam results, in carrying out the steps in time. Conscious of this situation, we offer a cancellation insurance free of charge which allows you to put your plans in place without worrying about the consequences in case of failure. In other words, you can enrol without risk for a language study stay and if, unfortunately, you are no longer in a position to travel abroad because of your studies (failure of exams), we retain no fees.

ESL promotions and special offers

Throughout the year, ESL offers special discounts on your language stay. Take advantage of our exclusive promotions by booking your programme in advance or with somebody else (the destination/school doesn’t have to be the same). Check regularly our website or contact us to stay informed about our partner schools’ special offers and travel at the best prices available on the market.

TESTIMONIALS

I stayed in Fukuoka, Japan, for 1 month.
My trip was good. The school staff welcomed me very well and teachers were helpful and very patient in teaching the language.

My class included 5 students, which is much better for learning.
My host family was great and I am still in touch with them. They made me discover the real Japanese cuisine.
There are many places to visit and it is impossible to get bored. Japanese people are extremely warm and helpful; in 3 different occasions, I struggled to find an address and, each time, someone took me the place I was looking for.
It was an enriching trip; I would love to go back to Japan.

Thank you ESL and Sophie for turning this trip into a success!

In Spain, I read and write in English but I rarely speak in English so I wanted to improve my speaking and listening as much as possible in my 4 weeks in Newcastle. I was recommended this city by my English teacher in Valencia and I like it here. I’m very happy with my teacher and classes at International House Newcastle and I have learned a lot. I study 25 hours a week but, to be honest, I would like to study even more! The school is great and everyone is friendly – I feel very welcome. The city has lots of interesting places to visit too. I love the buildings, cathedrals, museums and, of course, the bridges! I visited Edinburgh with the school’s social programme too – it was beautiful but freezing! I hope to come back to Newcastle next summer with my family.

As expected, Seoul is incredible and the school was great at all levels. I was very lucky with my host family; they were always helpful and lovely, and they really wanted me to like their amazing country. Immersing in a new country is very important if you want to learn a language, but it’s also a way to discover a new culture. The school was excellent and made us jump into Korean straight away, so we were forced to use the language. People were well distributed among different levels and teachers were very motivated, dynamic and nice. What more can you ask? The staff was always very helpful and available 24h via kakaotalk. It’s also possible to move from one level to another with a test, when this is needed. There is no competition among the students; we are all friends and we all make progress together while living like Koroeans and being considered so for the time of the language stay. I would recommend this school with no hesitation; I am very satisfied.
