Projects Abroad Language Courses

Travel abroad and learn a language as you immerse in a new culture

Improve your language skills while living abroad and exploring new places. Projects Abroad Language Courses let you learn your chosen language from highly trained native speakers. We believe language is a great tool to enhance your experiences, especially those abroad. Knowing a language will give you access to learning new skills and will create a greater connection with those you live and work around.


Knowing a local language, or a major world language, will improve your understanding of the cultures and perspectives of the country you visit.


As you learn a new language from another country, you can choose between one-to-one or group lessons. You can also choose between lessons with varying hours over one, two, three, or four weeks. Lessons will cover speaking, listening, reading and writing. These can be standalone classes or added on to many of our existing projects.


Invest in yourself by becoming a better communicator. You’ll reap the rewards that come from speaking another language.

Is studying languages abroad right for me?

Doing a language course is a great way to invest in yourself while you travel. It’ll help you integrate with a local community and give you a new skill that you can keep for the rest of your life.


You don’t need any previous language qualifications or experience to do a language course.


You can also join a group language course. This is a great way to meet others living in your community, and make friends and build a support network.


All our teachers are fully qualified, and all learning materials are included in the fee.


If you’re interested in our Language Courses, you may be interested in our Cultural Immersion Projects. These experiences also help you build your communication skills. Read our full list of projects for volunteering abroad.

What are the benefits of a language immersion program?

Learning a language abroad gives you skills that prepare you for your next stage of education and career. It’ll broaden your global perspective.


Here are just some of the benefits that our previous volunteers talk about:


  • Skills like teamwork, communication, and time management
  • Gain proficiency in another language
  • Get more out of your travels by communicating better with the local community
  • Confidence from challenging yourself outside of your comfort zone


All of the above will give your resume an edge, and will contribute to your own personal development.
