Frequently asked questions

  • How does it work?

You stay in your teacher’s home and have individual lessons, usually in the mornings. You continue to use the language during meals and typical family activities and/or during any of the optional extra activities or the special activities from our Combined Programs (Sports, Culture, Leisure, Farmstay or Christmas/New Year).

  • Who are the courses for?

Home Language International‘s students are school children, university students, professionals or simply adults enjoying a different kind of holiday.

  • How old are the students?

Our students come from all age groups (from 9 to 90) and all possible backgrounds and countries throughout the world.

  • Do you accept young students?

Most of the students are children and we are very experienced in caring for them. Parents can be reassured that their children will be met at the airport (obligatory for under 16s) and will stay and study in a safe family environment, often with the teacher’s own children.

We also offer a Cocooning Option (closer supervision for the under 18s) and our VIP Option for Juniors for further peace of mind.

  • Who are the teachers?

HLI has over 2,000 experienced language teachers with a university degree (or equivalent) and/or a teaching qualification throughout the world. They may be teachers working part or full-time in a school, retired teachers or people who worked in a different field before beginning teaching. Such a variety of backgrounds makes it easier for us to place students with the right teacher.

  • How does HLI choose the right teacher for each student?

We take the greatest care to learn as much as possible about our students and our host families so that we can find teachers of similar backgrounds to the student and very often with similar interests such as golf, tennis, classical music or other hobbies.

Please try to enroll at least one month in advance so that we can be sure of selecting exactly the right family for you.

  • Who checks that the student is happy with the course/family?

In each area we have experienced Local Organizers who contact students shortly after arrival to see that they are happy. On very rare occasions there can be a clash of personalities. When the Local organizer asks if the student is happy the student only has to answer ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ and does not have to give any embarrassing reasons for wishing to change host family.

All teachers know that on very rare occasions the chemistry is just not right and that in such cases the family will be changed with no bad feelings. Changes can also be made in the case of illness or accident.
