STUDENT INFORMATION - TOTAL IMMERSION
EUROPEAN HOMESTAY COURSES

European Homestay  runs Intensive  Homestay courses in Europe, mainly in the UK, IRELAND, ITALY,  FRANCE, SPAIN, PORTUGAL, SWITZERLAND, CYPRUS AND GREECE.

Our objective is to give you  Total Immersion in the language and culture you have chosen to study wherever you have selected to homestay. Most students arrive with at least a basic knowledge of the language they wish to learn. Whatever their level European Homestay Teachers give them their undivided attention and students make considerable progress.  We do also  have students at beginner level.  

You are welcomed into your teacher’s home where you will experience life as part of the family together with an individual programme of intensive tuition. On this type of course you  make rapid progress due to the intensity and personalised aspect of the courses.
EUROPEAN HOMESTAY  OFFERS COURSES ALL YEAR ROUND TO ALL AGES AND LEVELS OF STUDENTS IN SEVERAL COUNTRIES IN EUROPE.

In addition to General Language Courses in ENGLISH, FRENCH, ITALIAN AND SPANISH, students may choose to study Business, Academic, Exam preparation and Technical Language Courses in the language of their choice.

The average length of stay is two weeks but some students particularly those on Academic and Exam courses can homestay for several months. Our students come from all walks of life. Our students can be:


Young adults who may be preparing for Exams

Business professionals wishing to improve their    communication  skills for their work;

International students in Independent schools needing to  improve their language for Academic purposes
WHY ARE WE ABLE TO OFFER TOTAL IMMERSION ON ALL OUR HOMESTAY LANGUAGE COURSES?


European Homestay students live in their teachers’ homes and develop a geniune rapport with the teacher, family and friends.

This is vital in facilitating geniune conversation outside lessons;  invaluable in improving on fluency in the language.

The location of the homestay makes no difference to the converstational opportunities that the student will have as 99% of the conversation is with the teacher, family and friends.  

You will have found through experience that   it is extremely difficult to have an actual conversation with complete strangers such as waiters or bus drivers in any country.

English being an international language is spoken everywhere so if the student wishes to speak English outside the home with strangers there is that possibility as well even outside the UK.

CONVERSATION

Conversation with the teacher and family outside lessons plays an equally important part in the progress you make 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  and location that you have chosen.

We cannot stress enough that whichever location you choose you will be able to speak the language you are learning practically 24/7.  The conversations will be more intense and productive as you will be talking to people that you can develop a good rapport and friendship with.
