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.

  • A choice of 15, 20, 25 or 30 teaching hours per week – a truly intensive language course. 
  • Open to participants of all levels, with no age limit. 
  • Language immersion from first thing in the morning to last thing at night. 
  • Live, study and explore the destination with an authentic guide to local culture.

Perfect for…

  • Learners with little time who need fast, targeted progress, for example business learners.

  • Learners with a disability (some teachers specialise in students with a physical or learning disability). 
  • Anyone seeking the most authentic and complete cultural immersion.

Destinations

We offer courses “in the teacher’s home” in a huge variety of cities and towns around the world. Teachers often live in smaller towns or in the suburbs of large towns. This offers you an authentic experience of local life, not the traditional “tourist trail”, although your teacher will also be an excellent guide to the famous local sites. With years of experience in language travel, we can help you find the destination that best suits your goals, as well as your budget.

I spent 3 months at a language school in Cairns in 2013 before coming to Perth. I went to Cairns as it was a small town and I didn’t want to be in a crowded city such as Sydney or Melbourne.

I chose Perth for three reasons;: First, as a nature lover, I came back to Australia for the wildlife. Australia has amazing diversity of animals such as snakes, lizards and of course kangaroos!

Then, obviously because of the climate, which is perfect here in Australia, even in winter I can wear shorts and t-shirts in the middle of the day. Finally I wanted again a quiet place to study, so I chose Perth (the city isn’t very big).

I didn’t need a Cambridge certificate, I just decided to do the course as a big challenge to myself. The structure of the course was well organised and the book that we studied from every day provided great content. There was a good balance between theory and practical exercises. When I arrived, I was more at an FCE level but I am delighted I chose CAE as it pushed me a lot to achieve a higher level in English.

The best things about Lexis was the teachers! I was always so happy and confident with the teachers and their teaching techniques. They are all so caring and had so much time and care for their students.

Regarding accommodation, I started in a homestay but then I found an Air B&B to move to. I have really enjoyed the experience of living with an Aussie family.

When I finish at Lexis, I’m going for a 4 week drive from Perth to Darwin. Two of my friends and I are renting a car to drive up the coast. I am then spending 2 weeks in New Zealand and 1 month in Japan. I’m going to study Japanese next year in Japan. I really wanted to study at Lexis but I will be living in Osaka so it was a little bit too far to commute each day.

I would definitely recommend LEXIS to other people. The teaching quality is very high. The organisation within the school is great and the teachers are very involved with their students' learning. In addition, the location of the school is fantastic; it’s great to be close to the stunning beaches such as Scarborough Beach. It is a calm and safe place to study at.

I enjoyed the classes with my teacher very much. We talked a lot in class, and I learned much new grammar.
It was very intensive and I could improve my German very well.
I also enjoyed the city of Salzburg very much. After being a little nervous in the beginning, I quickly found that it is easy to get around e.g. with the public busses, and to explore the sights of the town.
My host family was very nice and the food was delicious. They helped me with my German, we spoke a lot and they corrected me if I made a mistake. I am happy that I picked Salzburg as a destination for my German course.
