Fast and flexible language learning

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. 

About the courses

  • 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. 
  • Full board provided. 
  • Personalised tuition, tailored to the learner’s needs – the fastest way to achieve your goals.

Perfect for…

  • Learners with little time who need fast, targeted progress, for example business learners.
  • People who do not thrive in a traditional classroom environment. 
  • 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.

TESTIMONIALS

Carlos Alonso Rodríguez

Galway was one of the best experiences of my life. It’s a small but incredibly lively city, and it’s impossible to get bored there. It has all the atmosphere of a university town, and every night, there’s something to do, like the salsa nights on Wednesdays at Monroe’s and Fridays at The Front Door. The people there are really friendly and try to help you as much as they can. I stayed with a host family, and they treated me as if I were their own son.

I would also like to mention the Atlantic language school. I had an incredible 8 months there, and every week you have the chance to meet new people. I made lifelong friends, and today I’m still in touch with people from Brazil, Italy and South Korea, to name a few.

If I had the opportunity to go back, I wouldn’t hesitate for a second.

My one-to-one language stay at Mr & Mrs Smith’s home in Worthing was very good. The couple is very nice and helpful. From Monday to Friday, in the morning I had a 3-hour lesson (often more than 3 hours) with few breaks, and in the evening I had to do some homework in my bedroom (I requested it!). In the afternoon, Tony and his wife Anne would have me visit the surroundings and keep me busy. They are very nice and they welcomed me into their family life as if I were a real member. Their home is simple but comfortable: I had my own big room (around 15m2) facing the garden, and it was very quiet. Tony and Anne were very careful with the food quality (they like organic products), so I ate very well the whole time; Anne likes to cook for her guests and tries to satisfy everyone’s taste.

In a nutshell, I am very happy about this experience: I improved my English in the best conditions and discovered the surrounding region.

My stay in Exeter was a beautiful experience both on the personal level as well as on the language learning level.

At ESL, they advised me very well in Valencia. With highly personal service and great organisation, they were always making sure that my trip met my expectations. Both my host family and the GLOBE school were of the highest quality.

Of course, I would go back to ESL again for its amazing service and professionalism.
