ESL schools guarantee the same excellent standards for accommodation as they do for teaching. We take great pleasure in helping you find the most suitable accommodation for you.


Host family


Living with a host family is an attractive option on many levels: it's the ideal setting for practicing the language and immersing yourself in English culture, and you know exactly how much you'll spend on meals for the duration of your stay. You’ll be able to choose between a single or twin room (for students travelling together), and between 3 meal options: half-board, breakfast only and self-catering. The families live around 60 minutes away by bus from the school.


Note: It is compulsory for students under 18 to book homestay accommodation, airport transfers (if arriving or leaving between 20:00 and 8:00), and provide a parental consent form.
