This is a total immersion course for young learners. This programme suits students who would like to focus on a particular academic subject in English or students who are currently studying at an international school. This course allows students to get a head start on their learning and can provide the extra edge that students need in the competitive global education system. The teachers we use have taught in UK schools and have extensive knowledge of the UK school system as well as in-depth expertise in any particular subject chosen by the student. As with all Homelingua programmes we ensure that every student is matched up with the best possible teacher to help them achieve success in all academic areas. Our school subjects course is very popular during half-term and other school holidays.

On a home tuition course students learn English at the teacher’s home. The English immersion environment means your child becomes more confident in using English and develops their knowledge of English grammar and vocabulary in a natural context. When students learn English at the teacher’s house, not only do they benefit from a personalised course, but they 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.
