Leisure

Much more than language classes

One of the main advantages of studying abroad is that you can practise the language you are studying on a daily basis, while enjoying a huge range of activities. Extra-curricular activities create a relaxed and motivating environment in which to meet other students and use your skills in an authentic setting. This is the reason why schools offer diverse cultural, social and sporting leisure options in addition to the quality courses that have built their reputation.

100% sport

During your trip, you can combine language study with your favourite sports. Enjoy a football match in Barcelona's Camp Nou Stadium or join a game on the beach in Salvador da Bahia. Chill out at a surfing competition in Biarritz or strap in for the Grand Prix in Belgium. Catch an ice hockey match in Québec, Canada, or get your cowbells out for FIS World Cup skiing events in the Swiss Alps. Explore the turquoise waters in Fort-de-France or Bocas del Toro, try your hand at eusko pilota in San Sebastián... you are spoilt for choice!

100% culture

From the misty vestiges of Machu Picchu in Peru to the heights of Tapei 101 in Taiwan, from the Mayan temples of Mexico to the shopping temples of Tokyo, from the collections of the Musée du Louvre in Paris to the open-air East Side Gallery in Berlin, from the Rio de Janeiro Carnival to the Street Parade in Zurich, the world is a wonderful place.
 
For some, walking the Great Wall of China is a spiritual experience. For others, savouring a delicious dish of fresh pasta in a charming wine-growing village in Italy has the same effect. Chill out in a traditional coffee shop in Vienna or explore Costa Rica’s coffee bean plantations. One thing is for sure: immersing yourself in the culture of the country you’re visiting will help you understand other essential dimensions of the language you’re studying.

100% adventure

Travelling abroad and sharing this experience with other students from throughout the world is a unique life experience that will stay with you forever. Explore a different country, get beneath the surface of its culture and meet tons of new people of all ages and nationalities.
 
Nothing is more rewarding than getting out there and striking a conversation with locals, hearing them talk and listening to their stories. Or making friends with international students and exploring one of the world’s most exciting cities together. This is the fastest way to improve your language skills and live your trip to the full. After your language course in Paris, Berlin, Madrid or Florence, you will return home with friends from the four corners of the globe.

TESTIMONIALS

Pablo Montilla

Thanks to the assessment from ESL, I decided to travel abroad to improve my English for my future job. I decided on Toronto (Canada), because I wanted to get to know North America, and from there I could travel to other large cities thanks to the excursions with the school. From day one, ESL was always available to me and continually checked in with me. The school also helped me to integrate with the rest of my classmates and were also attentive to make sure that everything went perfectly. Without a doubt it was a unique experience that I’ll do again in order to continue learning in other parts of the world and meet more incredible people from every corner of the planet.

Meeting people from all over the world, travelling, getting to know another culture, learning English… these are some of the thousands of positive things that I remember from my experience in Canada. My stay there was totally unforgettable. From the moment I first set foot in the country, I felt like I was home. I was living at a student house with two students from the school with whom I’ve kept up a good friendship. The OHC School makes you feel like one of them from day one. Daily activities to get to know the other students, high quality teachers, great facilities… Without a doubt, I can only say great things about my stay there. I would do it all over again a thousand times. Cheers.

I spent a week at the ISI Dublin school. From the first moment, they encourage interaction between students and offer a wide range of activities to take part in beyond the classes, which of course added to my satisfaction with the stay in addition to having such friendly staff. The residence was just a few minutes away on foot, resulting in a pleasant stroll through one of the prettiest parts of Dublin full of traditional Irish buildings including the school itself. This, in addition to the dynamic nature of the classes, allows you to immerse yourself in the language and daily life. It was without a doubt a great experience that left me wanting more.

P.S. Their coffee works wonders!
