Program Home Language International was established in 1979 and originally intended only English language courses for students from all over the world. But the services have become so popular and popular that today the students of Home Language International can study 20 world languages in 35 countries of the planet!
The peculiarity of the program is the maximally personal approach: you study a foreign language directly in its "native" country, living in the teacher's house and constantly communicating with his family, acquaintances and friends. Such a training scheme is extremely effective: full immersion in the language and cultural atmosphere will allow you to increase your own skills and abilities in the shortest possible time. In addition, it will give you the opportunity to truly embrace the culture of the host country, to realize its unique national characteristics and subtleties, to study history and traditions.
Language classes are conducted tete-a-tet, individually in the teacher's home. All the attention of the teacher is focused only on you: it allows you to more closely monitor successes and achievements, understand which topics and aspects you need to focus in more detail and detail, if necessary, quickly adjust the curriculum. This approach allows students to study at any age and any level of language knowledge and training: for each category of students, the most appropriate and effective program will be developed.
The minimum duration of the course is 1 week. Students live in the house of a qualified, experienced teacher on a full board basis (meals three times a day, a comfortable bedroom, free use of all common premises and infrastructure at home). Leisure time is dedicated to cultural, recreational and sporting activities - the teacher will help you to find out the new city and country as if you moved here to live, and you will not notice how you will begin to feel at home cozy and calm.
Learning Finnish is best in his homeland, in fabulous and picturesque Finland - courses are offered in the capital Helsinki. It is a quiet, quiet and relatively small city, in which, nevertheless, there is something to see!
The course provides many additional options that you can choose as you wish:Meeting and seeing off at the airport
