Travel and learn
With courses of 4 weeks on average, you’ll be able to choose the length of your stay from 1 week on and even further customise your experience. You can, of course, opt for a general language course or private lessons, but why not add some spice to it? Combine your language learning with an extra skill, such as sports, cooking or even yoga! On the other hand, if you’re thinking of sitting an official language exam, our exam prep courses are definitely the fastest track towards success.
Short-term language courses
We’re proud to partner with first-class language schools offering a wide range of courses. Whatever your age, goals and level, we have a course for you!
It’s a fact: there’s no more efficient way to learn a language than using it and being exposed to it in different contexts every day over a length of time. This is precisely what our general courses offer you – the opportunity to receive outstanding language lessons as well as endless opportunities to put your new skills into practice. And that’s how you cement knowledge!
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.
Private language courses
For some people, a language course in a group 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 a one-on-one environment. This course type 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.
Courses for 30+
These courses offer a more mature study environment than a standard adult language course (which is available to anyone aged 30 or over). If you need English mainly for the less formal areas of professional life, as opposed to for a specific professional goal, this course is a great fit.
Courses for 50+
Learn a language together with people from your own generation. By studying in immersion, you’ll quickly develop language skills while experiencing a thrilling cultural exchange. Travelling is all about discovering and connecting with others, and our programs for students over 50 are the perfect combination of a smart vacation and exercising your mind!
Teacher Training courses
Whether you're new to the field of education or an experienced teacher, our Language Teacher Training courses will take your career to the next level! In partnership with accredited teacher training centers in superb international locations, we offer language teacher development courses for both native and non-native speakers.
More and more students are finding in blended learning the perfect approach towards their language learning. The reason is simple: doing an online course is a fantastic way to warm up before your departure so you’re extra prepared for the experience. Likewise, choosing to do an online course after your on-site studies will guarantee you keep up all of your newly-acquired skills!
