International language programmes

We offer programmes in FranceGermanyItaly, JapanSpain and the USA, but we can also organise study further afield if you're feeling adventurous!

EIL Study Abroad offers a range of language learning programmes, from those aimed at improving general language ability, to those targeting students preparing for their Leaving Certificate; from short-term language courses held abroad, to long-term full immersion progammes for Transition Year students who want to study in a Secondary School abroad.

The key feature of our programmes is cultural immersion, that is learning the language in it's native country. Whether you stay with a local family or at a residential school, you learn the language in the context of it's culture, exposed to native langauge speakers going about their everyday lives.
