Learn English & live in your private teacher's home around Durham with Home Language International! Home Language International (HLI) is a family-run business offering language courses in more than 20 languages in over 30 countries worldwide, including English lessons at an experienced private teacher's home in UK. More than 5,000 students take advantage of our services every year. Ian Josephs, Danielle Josephs, their 5 adult children and an expert team of dedicated staff all put in very long hours for HLI. You stay in an experienced teacher's family home, have one-to-one English lessons and then continue to use the language during the rest of your stay in Durham. Because you are the only student, you are guaranteed individual attention. The lessons are completely designed for you, so the teacher will focus exactly on what you need. Mealtime conversation, television and social contacts are all in English. All of our teachers in UK have a university degree (or equivalent) and/or a recognised teaching certificate. All teachers have been visited by one of our local organisers. Their qualifications have been checked and their homes throughly inspected. During your stay in Durham, a local organiser will monitor your progress and make sure your experience is both happy and successful. Home Language International (HLI) is accredited by the Accreditation Body for Language Services (ABLS), Association of Language Travel Organisations (ALTO), and UNOSEL.
Fleetham Lodge is located in the heart of the Yorkshire countryside between the Yorkshire Moors and Yorkshire Dales National Parks (both are visible from here). It is an ideal spot to be immersed in English language and culture and indeed there is no choice but to use and experience these every day, all day! There are plenty of opportunities to explore the beautiful countryside by bicycle or on foot right from our front door. The gardens themselves are extensive and you can play tennis, croquet or simply sit and read by the fountain or pond. All programmes include residential accommodation in the house and there are private bathrooms for students. The rooms are large doubles and very comfortable with views over the grounds and to the beautiful countryside beyond. All the prices quoted are for the whole group (from 1 to 4 students).
