Language programmes for children and teenagers (8 - 17 years old)
Yes, young students tend to be sponge-like and therefore faster language learners. But do you know how to boost this ability? By making the learning process a real ADVENTURE! Dynamic lessons, new international friends and fun activities… the excitement never ends! Will it be an English and surf course? Or a French and horse riding programme? Or how about Spanish and dancing? You decide! What’s more, you can also choose to learn more unusual languages such as Japanese or Korean!
Language programs for kids and teens
We’re proud to partner with first-class language schools offering high quality programs with a wide range of fun activities.
Every summer, young learners face a decision: Will they study in preparation for school, or will they go on a holiday and enjoy their freedom? Through our summer language courses, they can do both!
During a summer camp with ESL, students will travel to one of our gorgeous locations to learn a language of their choice in a safe and stimulating environment, full of other young learners from around the world.
Students will spend their mornings learning their language through immersive daily lessons and their afternoons and weekends making friends, playing sports, and exploring their surroundings on fun, supervised excursions.
This is your chance to turn your language course into a language holiday!
Course Plus (aged 8-17)
Our Plus courses offer the opportunity to balance language classes with the regular practice of a sport or a specific activity included in the program. Thanks to our cultural extras, including cooking, music, dance, filmmaking, sustainable development and yoga, among others, you can combine language learning with an authentic cultural experience.
For some people, a traditional language school may not be the best option for learning a language. We have a solution that offers personalised tuition in a unique setting: immersion language courses in the teacher’s home. This service matches learners with an experienced language teacher in the country of their choice. The result? A personalised learning experience that delivers the fastest possible language progress.
