Adults, Sabbaticals



Take a sabbatical and learn a language

Who hasn’t dreamt of taking some time off work and exploring the world? Learning a language while on sabbatical means that you will come back not only refreshed but with new skills that are beneficial for you and your employer.

An active pause

As you settle into a career, it can be harder to find the time needed to develop new skills. Language learning, in particular, requires an investment of time. Studying in immersion, you will make the fastest possible progress while having an unforgettable experience living in another culture.

You are much more likely to get approval for your sabbatical plans if you have a clear structure in mind, with specific goals. One major advantage of studying while on your break is that you can clearly demonstrate the benefits that you will bring back with you. Employers value language skills highly, not to mention the numerous soft skills that come with living in a different culture.

​Tailor-made programmes

Your sabbatical course will be tailored to your individual needs. Want to study one language in multiple destinations? No problem. Different languages in different locations? Easy. Combine a course with your favourite sport or hobby? We have a wide range of options, also including internships and local community projects.

Our programmes provide you with a certificate confirming your progress and achievements, and you can also prepare official exams.

Return on investment

Whether you want to make language learning the focus of your sabbatical or you want to develop language skills as part of a larger project, a career break is a one-off opportunity. You will come home with a fresh outlook, increased motivation and the kind of experience that has no price tag. Simply put, you will stand out in the workplace.

If you are ready for a break with lifelong benefits, let’s make it happen together.
