5 Steps to Study Abroad Success

Step 1 Research

Types of ESL Programs

Private / Teachers Homestay

This is a special course where students do not commute to school, but receive individual English lessons while staying at the teacher's home. The teachers have both the necessary qualifications to teach ESL as well as teaching experience. Although the formal lessons are usually 3 to 4 hours per day, students will have many additional opportunities to learn practical English informally through daily life experience with a native family.

The curriculum is usually made according to your preferences and through discussion with your teacher. For example, if the student wishes to emphasize listening or speaking, then a suitable curriculum can be made. When the days lessons are over, you will have free time to do what you like and spend time with your host family. This is the ideal course for intensively learning practical English in a short period of time.
