THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST IN MARKETING EUROPEAN HOMESTAY COURSES.

EUROPEAN HOMESTAY  RUNS INTENSIVE HOMESTAY COURSES IN EUROPE, MAINLY IN THE UK, IRELAND,  ITALY,  FRANCE, SPAIN, PORTUGAL, SWITZERLAND, CYPRUS AND GREECE.

OUR OBJECTIVE IS TO GIVE STUDENTS TOTAL IMMERSION IN THE LANGUAGE AND CULTURE THEY HAVE CHOSEN TO STUDY WHEREVER THEY HAVE SELECTED  TO HOMESTAY.
SOME HOMESTAY STUDENTS CHOOSE TO STUDY  IN A PAIR OR SMALL GROUP.
We  offer 2:1 courses where two students live and learn together in the teacher’s  home. This is popular with couples, members of the same family and friends.  

We also run small group homestay courses  for teachers with larger homes. Have a look at our Group Course page to get further information. We run Group Courses in English, French, Italian and Spanish.
STUDENT   LEVEL

Most students arrive with at least a basic knowledge of the language they wish to learn, they are well motivated and a pleasure to teach.

However we do sometimes have beginners and all students are encouraged to bring dictionaries with them. The internet is a useful resource for this as well.
EUROPEAN HOMESTAY  OFFERS COURSES ALL YEAR ROUND TO ALL AGES AND LEVELS OF STUDENTS IN SEVERAL COUNTRIES IN EUROPE.

IN ADDITION TO GENERAL LANGUAGE COURSES IN ENGLISH, FRENCH, ITALIAN AND SPANISH, STUDENTS MAY CHOOSE TO STUDY BUSINESS, ACADEMIC, EXAM PREPARATION AND TECHNICAL LANGUAGE COURSES IN THE LANGUAGE OF THEIR CHOICE.

THE AVERAGE LENGTH OF STAY IS TWO WEEKS BUT SOME STUDENTS PARTICULARLY THOSE ON ACADEMIC AND EXAM COURSES CAN HOMESTAY FOR SEVERAL MONTHS.


OUR STUDENTS ARE:

YOUNG ADULTS WHO MAY BE PREPARING FOR EXAMS

BUSINESS PROFESSIONALS WISHING TO IMPROVE THEIR  COMMUNICATION SKILLS FOR THEIR WORK

INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS IN INDEPENDENT SCHOOLS NEEDING   TO IMPROVE THEIR LANGUAGE FOR ACADEMIC PURPOSES

PEOPLE OF ANY AGE SIMPLY WISHING TO IMPROVE THEIR LANGUAGE SKILLS ON A STUDY HOLIDAY.

LESSONS

Students choose in advance the number of hours individual tuition they require per week, (15, 20, 25 or 30). Lessons normally take place in the morning, Monday to Friday, unless otherwise agreed with the student and European Homestay .

Students are provided with a course book and student book although teachers usually supplement courses with their own teaching materials to make for a more enjoyable and dynamic course.

European Homestay  offers its students courses tailored to individual needs. This offers the teacher the flexibility to design a course with the student that meets their specific requirements for learning  the language they have chosen. This is a very rewarding teaching experience for teachers.
ACCOMMODATION

The student is treated as a member of the family.

Teachers  provide:
Comfortable, adequately heated study bedroom with  table, lamp, wardrobe and radio.

Light reading material which is of  interest to the  student, eg  paperbacks, newspapers, magazines

Information about places to visit in  the local area.

Three meals a day to include  breakfast, dinner and a  light lunch.  All meals are  taken with the  teacher and, whenever possible, amily and friends as well.

Facilities for laundry.
CONVERSATION

Conversation with the teacher and family outside lessons plays an equally important part in the progress made by the student, and many of our students have said how much they have learned in general conversation with native speakers.


All our teachers create a Total Immersion environment in the language the student has chosen to learn what ever the location. So the student is able to speak the language they are learning practically 24/7 whatever the location.
