Live and Learn with Your Teacher

Total Language Immersion – Live and Learn With Your Teacher


Learn the local language at Home Language International locations in: Austria, Brazil, Canada, China, Chile, Costa Rica, Czech Republic, Denmark, Egypt, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Holland, Italy, Japan, Poland, Portugal, Monaco, Norway, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Arab Emirates.


This is a unique opportunity for a total language immersion experience, living with and being taught by your own private teacher. The Home Language International program is completely different from any other language experience. You live and study in your teacher’s house. Students participate in the family’s daily and social activities, taking part during their stay in the life of a typical family. With the Home Language International Program there is no traveling to and from school every day and no contact with any students who speak your own language. Also, you may start the program on a date that is convenient to you. This program is suitable for ages 13 and older. Couples or 2 students traveling together can also participate on this program at reduced cost as long as they arrive and depart together and both participants are at the same language level. See below for special pricing.


You will be given an experience in LIVING the language you are studying. There is absolutely no contact with people speaking your own language. The teacher will correct and guide the student not only during the lessons but AT ALL TIMES when the teacher and student are together. Given sufficient notice, you can be placed with a teacher who shares your interests. All Home Language International teachers have either a teaching certificate recognized by the government or a university degree (or an accepted equivalent). In addition, all the teachers have earned the Regency Certificate, which means that their qualifications have been verified and the homes have been thoroughly inspected by the local organizer.


All homes and teachers have been carefully selected. Home Language International tries to look for the perfect family to match your interests and age. All families are upper middle class with very nice homes. Some luxury homes have also been made available with wealthy families who are interested in the challenge of the experience.
