Living with an English family together with a small group of 2-4 guests is the ideal way to learn English. 


During your family experience you will live with your professional, TEFL qualified teacher and their family, in a caring and friendly environment. You will be placed with another guest of approximately the same age, English level and interests but of a different nationality to ensure only English is spoken (2-4 guests in each house) In these small groups students create strong friendships and help each other to speak and understand English better. (1:1 lessons can be arranged at extra cost).

The Lessons


Lessons will be taken each weekday morning (no more than 4 to a class – 1:1 lessons can be arranged at extra cost) These lessons will be given in the teacher’s home or on field trips in a relaxed and engaging atmosphere. As groups are small the teacher can target points of weakness and give individual attention.

The Accomdation


There is no typical host family house but all are checked by Eltive to ASIC strict safety standards and to Eltive’s own high comfort standards. We take great care in choosing a home where we think the children will be happy and learn well. Living in an English home is the highlight of many students’ stay in England, and lasting friendships are often made with host families and other guests.


Learning together


After lessons there’s time for fun. Eltive’s full activity schedule conducted only in English, keeps them entertained, active and speaking real English in real situations. The fun way to learn.
