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!

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!
10. Flexible opening hours!
We are open from 08.00 until 18.30 UK time Monday to Thursday, and from 08.00 until 17.30 UK time on Fridays!
11. We are here to help 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 school in Porto was small, which enabled the teachers to adapt the classes to the specific needs of the different students. My stay at the school was a real pleasure and I would love to return there again.
I was pleased with the whole course, it was very well run and professional.
I had two excellent teachers and the time simply flew by, which must mean I was having fun. All the students took the course seriously and did the homework every day. The social programme was excellent too.
Really friendly people and great teacher. I enjoyed my time in Munich a lot. The accommodation was very comfortable and suitably furnished, so enhanced a pleasant stay.
Teaching, facilities and admin staff was excellent. My host was lovely-very friendly and helpful with the language.
I really enjoyed private one to one lessons. My room was presentable and had everything I needed.
I was blessed with a brilliant teacher who pushed me to use the language and I learned more than I thought possible.
