ALL ABOUT US
WHO ARE WE?

European Homestay is an educational establishment that specialises in offering total immersion  and intensive language courses to students in the teacher’s home.


THE LANGUAGES WE TEACH INCLUDE ENGLISH, ITALIAN, SPANISH AND FRENCH.


Our Homestay courses are run in several European Countries namely; the United Kingdom, Ireland, France, Spain, Italy, Portugal, Cyprus, Switzerland and Greece.
WHO ARE OUR TEACHERS?

IN ADDITION TO OUR TEACHERS BEING MOTHER TONGUE IN THE LANGUAGE THEY TEACH, THEY ARE GRADUATES OR PROFESSIONALS WITH A RECOGNIZED TEACHING QUALIFICATION AND A MINIMUM OF TWO YEARS TEACHING EXPERIENCE.

THE REALITY IS THAT MOST OF OUR TEACHERS ARE OVER QUALIFIED FOR THE ROLE AND SEE TEACHING AS THEIR VOCATION.
WHO IS THE DIRECTOR OF THE SCHOOL?

The Director, Usini Naidoo MSc, BSc (Hons) PGCE, RSA Diploma TEFL has over 20 years of experience teaching English as a foreign and second language as well as several years of management experience having been Director of Studies in schools such as The British School in Florence, Italy in 1989.

In 1991 after having established the first ESL school  and University of Cambridge Centre for exams in Durban, South Africa called The English School , she returned to Europe in 1995 to work as a Teacher Trainer on CELTA and DELTA courses in Italy and the United Kingdom. Further to this  since 1998  Usini has  been organising EFL company courses principally in Italy which led to the idea of setting up European Homestay. Initially organising courses in Italy the company expanded to the UK, France and Spain. Now European Homestay offers courses in several Mediterranean Countries.

Our aim to provide top quality and highly intensive language courses giving people over the age of 10 to learn their desired language in a total immersion environment. The advantage of choosing a Mediterranean location is that not only do students learn their language in the most efficient manner but they also enjoy a top quality break or holiday.
ARE ALL OUR COURSES TOTAL IMMERSION?

YES WE RUN ENGLISH LANGUAGE COURSES IN MEDITERRANEAN COUNTRIES AS WELL AS THE UNITED KINGDOM AND IRELAND AS ALL OUR TEACHERS PROVIDE OUR STUDENTS WITH A TOTAL IMMERSION EXPERIENCE.

WHICHEVER LOCATION OUR STUDENTS CHOOSE, THEY WILL BE SPEAKING ENGLISH FOR 24 HOURS OF THE DAY EXCEPT WHEN THEY CALL HOME PERHAPS.
