We offer 2:1 courses where two students live and learn together in the teacher’s home. This is popular with couples, members of the same family and friends. We also run small group homestay courses for teachers with larger homes. Have a look at our Group Course page to get further information. We run Group Courses in English, French, Italian and Spanish.
Most students arrive with at least a basic knowledge of the language they wish to learn, they are well motivated and a pleasure to teach. However we do sometimes have beginners and all students are encouraged to bring dictionaries with them. The internet is a useful resource for this as well.

Students choose in advance the number of hours individual tuition they require per week, (15, 20, 25 or 30). Lessons normally take place in the morning, Monday to Friday, unless otherwise agreed with the student and European Homestay. Students are provided with a course book and student book although teachers usually supplement courses with their own teaching materials to make for a more enjoyable and dynamic course. European Homestayoffers its students courses tailored to individual needs. This offers the teacher the flexibility to design a course with the student that meets their specific requirements for learning the language they have chosen. This is a very rewarding teaching experience for teachers.
The student is treated as a member of the family. Teachers provide:
Comfortable, adequately heated study bedroom with table, lamp, wardrobe and radio. Light reading material which is of interest to the student, eg paperbacks, newspapers, magazines Information about places to visit in the local area. Three meals a day to include breakfast, dinner and a light lunch. All meals are taken with the teacher and, whenever possible, amily and friends as well. Facilities for laundry.
Conversation with the teacher and family outside lessons plays an equally important part in the progress made by the student, and many of our students have said how much they have learned in general conversation with native speakers. All our teachers create a Total Immersion environment in the language the student has chosen to learn what ever the location. So the student is able to speak the language they are learning practically 24/7 whatever the location.
