GLOBAL LANGUAGE IMMERSION PROGRAMS FOR ADULTS

Our full immersion programs are suitable for adults of all ages and levels and are entirely tailored to you and your needs, whether you have a specific language learning goal, or simply want to discover a new language and culture.

You stay in your private host’s home, on full-board accommodation, you are the only student, and you are totally immersed in the target language. You are treated like a guest or relative and you learn the language by living it, which is the most effective way to make rapid and significant progress.

  • Professionals aiming to advance in a specific area, who need to communicate with partners and colleagues in a foreign language, prepare for an important event, career shift, etc.

PROGRAMS FOR ADULTS & PROFESSIONALS

Doing a language immersion program with a host teacher is the perfect way to improve your foreign language skills and effectively communicate in a professional area of choice. Our hosts are carefully selected for their background, experience and expertise in different areas such as business, marketing, tourism, science, etc.

 

They can offer courses using specific vocabulary and jargon in the area chosen and will prepare you for communication in an international working environment, career advancement or change, meetings in the target language, presentations, and many other individual, precise objectives. 

 

You can combine your program for professional purposes with general activities, cultural visits, sports or excursions to obtain a unique insight into another culture and learn not only through theory but also through practice.
