About the Countries we offer
Studying a language is more exciting when you learn it in the country where
it's spoken. These countries offer a variety of cultural experiences for
everyone - teens, grown-ups, seniors, families, professionals or executives.
Programs can be purely academic or combined with the Arts, Adventure, or
Work Experience. Live and experience all that country has to offer in one

You may choose to live in the home of a native host family which will
provide you with an opportunity to speak the language in a variety of
situations every day. By staying with a host family, you will experience the
culture and quickly gain confidence in speaking the language. If you would
like a more individualized and personal program, you can live and study in
the home of a certified teacher. Or you can stay in your own studio
apartment or pensione.
