Immersion Homestays in the UK

Why choose an immersion homestay?


Total Immersion Language Tuition

Home tuition is a unique opportunity to experience your host culture as well as making rapid progress in a relaxed and friendly environment. Living with a qualified and experienced native teacher is a great way to learn about culture hands-on - from mealtimes to free time.

Choose from business, specialized or general courses or exam preparation, or make the most of one of the many activity programmes on offer (sports, culture and leisure activities.)

Our partner organization carefully screens its total immersion homestay teachers and works with tutors throughout the UK, making it easy to find the right tutor for you. All the tutors are experienced and qualified, and offer a warm and welcoming homestay experience as well as quality language lessons.


Teachers are not usually located in the town centre, as we put greater emphasis on their quality and competence over geographical location. We would kindly ask you to choose 3 regions of preference on your enrolment form.
