A friendly and comfortable environment helps students to feel more confident when using English.

However, on occasion and only during summer, rooms may consist of 5 or 6 beds; in all cases, rooms are private and only allocated to Travelling Languages’ students. During low season – October to May – accommodation is guaranteed in triple rooms.

Our total immersion Travelling programmes give each student the chance to improve their language skills and confidence in just one week. This 1-week travelling programme is the perfect refresher course before a language exam, to build that extra confidence that will enable students to pass their exam. Our courses are the perfect alternative to home tuition courses especially for those students like you who do not want to spend their time only with their teacher.
Because it gives you the opportunity to immerse gradually in the language and the culture.
This is why we add three afternoons of activities per week in order to make sure students get to practise, meet locals and interact in English. We also include accommodation with a host family.
