English Language Skills
For Au Pairs

Our English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) program is designed to provide au pairs the opportunity to improve their English language proficiency through listening, speaking, reading and writing in a safe and engaging learning environment. Instruction is delivered by ESOL teachers who are experts in second language acquisition.

Students may choose from Online Courses, In-Person Weekend Courses, or our brand new Combo Courses. Online and Combo courses are split into two levels to service the many different language needs of au pairs.
