Lessons will be held in one of 19 air-conditioned classrooms (one of which is dedicated exclusively to exam prep) or sometimes out on the patio in fair weather, which is often in sunny Florida! You'll also find a library, tablets for students' use and a lounge with a big-screen TV, Xbox and ping-pong. Free Wi-Fi is of course available throughout the building. The school shares a building with the residence, which has its own pool and terrace where you can sunbathe and swim after class!

LAL, Fort Lauderdale
Duration: 16 weeks

During our classes, we had a wide range of subjects including exercises in listening, speaking, reading, writing and grammar. Our small class allowed us to interact more with each other and the teacher. I now feel more confident in conversing with other people and we are more likely to use the language. The school staff has been very friendly and available and always open to arrange excursions or other services (car rental, hotel reservations, shuttles etc..) During my stay in Fort Lauderdale I’ve made a lot of friends from all over the world with whom we went to different places and enjoyed our leisure time in Florida.

I enjoyed the fact that you have the opportunity of sharing this experience with persons coming from other countries to improve my English. Now I know a little bit more about other countries. I improved my vocabulary and I lost the fear of speaking. Everything was great, even considering that the month of August is the most crowded period for the school. The most enjoyable thing was to learning and having fun with others.

LAL, Fort Lauderdale
Duration: 9 weeks

My stay in Fort Lauderdale was a fantastic experience that allowed me to efficiently improve my language skills. The course focuses on interesting topics and, as each class is pretty small, questions are extensively discussed. We practised our speaking, listening and writing skills and, every Thursday, we passed a small text to check if everything was clear. The school staff was very nice and helpful; they helped me a couple of times to organize things such as an excursion or an airport transfer. Every day there was a different activity: shopping, concerts, swimming with dolphins, catamaran tours… And at weekends, the school organized different excursions, for example to Key West. During my language stay, I met plenty of people and made some new friends; I am still in touch with them! I love speaking English, and now I like it even more, as I had the opportunity to improve my skills in Fort Lauderdale. I am not shy at all and even understanding others became pretty easy.
Fort Lauderdale is a nice city with a beautiful beach. The nightlife and the excursions are amazing, that’s for sure! This language stay was an unforgettable experience – thank you so much ESL, your team was very nice!
