Struggling to Arrange an Exchange?

We all know there’s no better way to get your students speaking their target language than to arrange an exchange. But, increasingly, parents are reluctant to allow their children to take part, as many feel they don’t have the time to host their children’s partner.

Sound familiar?

We have the solution!Our Language Study Tours include lessons at a specialist language school and a rich cultural activities programme, all conducted in the target language. Plus, your students can stay with a carefully chosen host family, without their own parents having to reciprocate.

So your students can still enjoy all the benefits of total immersion in the language!

The lessons will be tailored to meet your curriculum, to ensure that students get the most out of the trip. All the teachers at the language schools we work with are fully-qualified to teach their native language to international students.

The lessons will be in the target language from the outset, so that your students enjoy full immersion in the language.

The host families are all very carefully selected to ensure that they offer safe, suitable accommodation for students. They are well known to the schools' dedicated Accommodations Officers, who visit all their host families regularly to make sure they still offer the quality expected from them.

Of course, hosts will speak to students in their native tongue, again adding to the total immersion experience. They will encourage students to engage with them in conversation, which will be great practice for them!
