Family course

We offer families a fun holiday opportunity, combining sightseeing and activities with a chance to learn the English language and experience a new culture, in a relaxed environment.

Please note: this course is only available for students travelling with a family member or an accompanying adult.

We welcome families from all over the world; Spain, Italy, France, Russia and Japan. Every family is different and we have developed our courses to facilitate this by giving several options to our visiting family students.
