Language Trips – FAQs


How does a language learning holiday work?

Well it’s the best! Because you get to do everything you love while you’re on holiday in a new country AND learn the local language too! You get real life practice with the words and phrases you’ve been learning. You get an insight into the culture. By learning the language you are adding a new skill.

Read my post here for some more info on how a language learning holiday usually works for us.

Do I need to know any of the language?


This trip is aimed at completed beginners. We have an arrangement with a small and personalised language school.

If you do have some knowledge we will be able to arrange tuition for your level.

Can my partner and kids come?

Of course! The more the merrier!

Partners and kids can take part in ALL of the trip including language classes, but we just ask that kids be aged 8 years and above for the language component. If you have a younger child who is keen to join us in language studies, please contact me as I would love to try and accommodate them.

Partners and kids NOT participating in the full program will pay a discounted rate.
