ESL quality guarantee
Our goal is to help students have the experience of a lifetime during their language course, both inside and outside the classroom. Students benefit from ESL’s privileged relationship with our partner schools, who roll out the red carpet for ESL students. Helping us to maintain our high standards are the thousands of online student reviews that represent our most important barometer of quality! Each year, ESL recognises outstanding service at the ESL Language Travel Awards
ceremony, and schools with consistently high student ratings are given an ESL Certificate of Excellence
A close-knit environment
Whether a large school with hundreds of students or a small, family-run academy, all of our partner schools have something in common – they offer you a stimulating environment. With the ultimate goal of your well-being, a warm welcome combined with staff availability and support will make all the difference throughout your stay. From day one, you’ll make friends with whom you’ll share the experience of discovering your new destination. Day by day, you’ll become an expert on what to see and do to enjoy the city like a local. Life in full immersion is the best way to make the most of your experience abroad.
Motivating courses adapted to your level
Starting with a level test and needs assessment, you’ll be placed in the right class for you. You’ll have clearly defined objectives, support from your teachers who will track your progress along the way and a final certificate showing your achievement. You’ll be able to level up or sit an official exam. Enjoy reduced class sizes, excellent for facilitating communication, a wide variety of nationalities and a diversity of ages and backgrounds among students. Not only will you acquire language skills to last a lifetime, but also develop soft skills and broaden your horizons.
At ESL, we know that a great teacher can transform a good experience into an unforgettable one. Our partner schools’ specialised teachers are native speakers with years of experience in teaching foreign languages. By using the communicative methodology, you’ll be putting skills like grammar and listening into practise as you learn to express yourself in a foreign language. Students will also enjoy the use of modern technology integrated into their classes. Your teacher will be there to encourage you throughout your language journey, with regular feedback and guidance.
Your language course beyond the classroom
The social experience that you have while learning a language abroad is an essential element to the success of your trip. This is why our partner schools carefully select quality accommodation options and a wide variety of free-time activities, which will directly enrich your extra-curricular life.
All of our partner schools have computers with internet access and offer free Wi-Fi, so you can bring your laptop or mobile device and go online throughout the school.
