Our junior students live and learn in the family home of a friendly and caring teacher. This is a perfect course for young learners who are already confident in English and require additional tutoring in GCSE / International O Level subjects and exams. We only use qualified Homelingua school teachers who are experienced in teacher and mentoring school children. The total immersion environment means that junior students speak and listen to English all day, helping build your child’s confidence and increase their study skills. Additional English tutoring can be provided if required.

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.
