For young people

Language study programmes for young people are generally aimed at young people between the ages of 8 and 19 years. The supervision and teaching are especially suited to young people (children and teenagers) who are travelling abroad for the first time without their family or for a new experience.

In general, language study programmes for young people are developed by age bracket. These include summer camps (8-13 years), short or long-term courses (from 14 years), with the family or in the teacher's home. You have the choice regarding the destination and the precise duration of the language study trip.

Travelling abroad when you are young is very important because this allows you to make rapid progress and to acquire a solid basis for continuing with the learning of the language. In addition to assured progress in the language, language study programmes for young people are a great aventure which allows young people to discover a new approach to foreign languages.

They concentrate these programmes on exhanges between young people and in addition, propose a language exchange study trip where young people and teenagers are welcomed by families who are prepared to take in a young person for several weeks or even several months.
