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


In order to learn a language, there's nothing better than full immersion in a host family. They offer half-board in single rooms, some with private bathrooms. You can get to most of the host families on foot and for those that are further away, you can take a short bus ride. Most of the families live less than a half an hour from the school.
