Additional private lessons during our English immersion courses can be arranged for a fee of $50 per hour.

Apartment/hotel option: The package prices listed above include standard plan accommodation (see above for details). However, if you prefer to stay in a private apartment, hotel, or bed-and-breakfast, we will discount your course fee by $150 per week, and you pay for the hotel or apartment directly to the hotel or apartment owner. Costs for accommodations in a hotel or apartment vary widely depending on availability, time of year, and the type of apartment or hotel, and range from $600 to $1200 per week for a 1-bedroom apartment (kitchen, living room, bedroom with private bath), and $150+ per night for a room with private bath in a hotel or bed-and-breakfast. If you would like our help in finding an apartment or hotel, please ask; hotels and apartments book up quickly, especially in the high season of June-September, so please make your reservations as early as you can.
