We have a full range of English immersion courses and options for parent and child. A family course is a wonderful opportunity for a parent and child to share a cultural and learning experience together. Homelingua can also offer customised family course packages for families of all sizes. Please contact your Bucksmore Homelingua course consultant to arrange a customised family course offer.

On a home tuition course you learn English at the teacher’s home. The English immersion environment means you become more confident in using English and develop your knowledge of English grammar and vocabulary in a natural context.  When you learn English at the teacher’s house, not only do you benefit from a personalised course, but you also take part in cultural activities and family life.

Using the Homelingua Advanced Learning System we can deliver results and progress much faster than other study methods.

Homelingua Advanced Learning System

Personalising the course to your needs

Your teacher will assess your level of English at the beginning of the course and plan a personalised course for you. The teacher will focus on language points and skills you find difficult and help make the maximum progress possible. Our teachers can also customise the course based on your study goals, interests and hobbies, language needs and other special requests.

Combinations between 15 – 25 hours total tuition per week are available. Parents are responsible for their child outside of lesson and excursion time.

Family visit – A great way for a family to experience life in the United Kingdom and Ireland.
