Why Book with us?
At Apple Languages, we have been advising students on language courses abroad since 1992. We have also attended language courses abroad ourselves and most of us have a background in language study and/or tuition!
We also take every opportunity to visit our schools and it is very often possible to speak with someone who has visited the school and location in which you are interested! Let us use our vast experience and knowledge of our schools to help you decide which options will best meet your requirements!
1. We are experts in our field, with over 20 years' experience in language travel!
Language Courses Abroad Ltd. (of which Apple Languages is a trading name) was established in 1992. Over the years we have sent thousands of students on courses all over the world!

3. We very carefully select our partner schools!
We only work with schools that are able to offer high-quality total immersion language courses taught by fully-qualified native speakers, small group sizes, modern teaching techniques and professional student care.
4. We visit our partner schools on a regular basis!
We visit our schools regularly to ensure that they continue to maintain the very highest standards that our students have a right to expect. These school visits also allow us to advise our students from first-hand experience, which our students find invaluable! We also ask all of our students to complete a student feedback form at the end of their course, to ensure that students continue to have the positive experiences we expect!
5. Competitive prices and regularly updated special offers!
We do our very best to offer the most competitive prices to save you money! In fact, if you find the same course and accommodation cheaper elsewhere, we will do our very best to beat that quote! In many cases, we are even able to offer a cheaper price than our partner schools! You can also choose to pay for your course in GBP, Euros or USD, saving you money on exchange rates! We also regularly update our special offers! You can view all course and accommodation options, as well as prices, by using our 'Find a course' quotation tool located in the top left-hand corner of our website.
6. The price we quote is the price you pay!
There are no hidden charges in our prices. They all include any registration/booking fees or seasonal surcharges! Regardless of movements in exchange rates, once you have booked your course and paid your deposit, the price you booked at will be the price that you pay!
7. Local telephone numbers mean it is cheap to call us!
We have local telephone numbers in UK, Ireland, USA, Canada, France, Belgium, Italy, Netherlands, Sweden, Australia and Russia. All calls are routed through to our UK office, but if you call the local number for your country, you will only pay for a local call (and will avoid paying international call charges!).
8. We speak English, French, Spanish, Italian, German, Dutch, Portuguese and German!
It is usually possible to speak to a Language Travel Adviser in your native language. This can be especially important if you are a beginner in the language you want to learn! You are also more than welcome to email us in any one of these languages and we will send you a reply in that language!
9. Flexible payment options!
At the time of booking you just pay a deposit of 200 GBP/250 Euros/350 USD. You can then pay in instalments for your course up to 12 weeks before the start date! As you can pay in GBP, Euros or USD you can choose the currency which is most convenient for you!

Should you require any assistance before you travel, or whilst you are on your course, please do not hesitate to contact us, as we will be very pleased to help!
The environment is fantastic, teachers make the lessons good fun and they are encouraging and patient. Conversation and interaction was encouraged which helped me understand and speak alot faster than I would in a 'normal' course.
Only went for a week, but the teaching was excellent. I'll be back soon, when I have more time. The hotel accommodation excellent and the beaches were to die for!
I was impressed with the course and the commitment of our teacher. She did not waste one moment in our classroom time.
The quality of teaching was excellent. There was the right amount of reading, writing and listening work.
Very high quality teaching. Teachers adapted well to student needs and were very flexible. Very happy with the accommodation. Excellent food and very friendly family, who provided me with many opportunities to practice Spanish.
Well organised and teaching was varied and excellent. It was very worthwhile and I would go again.
The three weeks of learning were very helpful to me, I have a good understanding about the language but its up to me to really study, and lots of memorizing.
The standard of teaching was the best I've seen and the staff were so friendly. I stayed with such a lovely family, very kind and I'll miss them.
I spent 3 weeks with a host, a woman in the family home in one of the old characterful streets two minutes from the school?she fed me and the my housemates magnificently, and was delightfully relaxing to ask practicalities.
The course was very good, particularly the grammar. The apartment was fine and clean. The diving I did was excellent, and the company very nice, helpful and well organised.
