Why choose Home Language International ?

The Home Tuition advantage

Living and studying in your private teacher's home is the most intensive and efficient way of learning a language. You benefit from one-to-one lessons, meals and accommodation, all with your teacher, then continue to use the language during the rest of your stay as you share the daily life of the family. This means that you never stop learning, it is the only true full immersion experience as you have the opportunity to speak the language before, during and after your lessons. The most common criticism of language schools is that students speak their own language outside of class, this cannot happen with us as you are the only student. We can offer taylor made programmes as we have a large choice of host teachers.

Local Organisers

Every destination we propose is supervised by a local organiser whose job is to monitor the progress of each student and to make sure your experience with us is both enjoyable and successful.

Host Teachers 

Our teachers all have a university degree (or equivalent) and/or a recognised teaching certificate. They have all been visited by one of our local organisers, their qualifications checked and their homes thoroughly inspected. Most of them have been working with us for a long time and love the personal contact this system enables them to have with the students they host and teach.
