About HLI

Home Language International offers full-immersion courses in 20 languages in over 30 countries worldwide.

Stay in an experienced teacher’s home, have one-to-one language lessons, enjoy 3 meals a day with the family and then continue to use the language during the rest of your stay as you share the daily life of the family.

The home tuition advantage

The most common criticism of conventional language schools is that students speak their own language with friends when not in class. This weakness is eliminated with HLI’s home tuition method because you are the only student in the class. You therefore have the opportunity to speak the language before, during and after your lessons for a true full-immersion experience.

Our teachers

Have a university degree and a minimum of 2 years’ teaching experience and/or a teaching qualification.

Each has been visited by one of our Local Organisers, their qualifications checked and their homes thoroughly inspected.

Private language lessons

You can choose from 10, 15, 20, 25 or 30 hours per week of one-to-one lessons with your experienced teacher. The lessons are completely personalised for you so the teacher will focus on exactly what you need. We teach all levels from complete beginners to highly advanced and welcome students of all ages.

Who is it for?

Children & teenagers

As they live and study in the teacher’s homes, students cannot hide at the back of the class or miss lessons. Children of all ages can easily be supervised by the teacher according to their parents’ wishes.

Adults & professionals

There is no longer any need for adults and professionals to feel uncomfortable in a large class of differing ages and abilities. Some of our teachers have specialist knowledge of subjects such as business, medicine, law, marketing, engineering, banking etc. These teachers offer a Business & Professional Vocabulary course for those who request it in advance.

The HLI textbook is available on request free of charge to all students taking courses in the UK or Ireland. Please write to us after you have completed your course and we will send it directly to your home.

Meet our native teachers and learn the language of your choice from the comfort of your home.
