Studying Languages Abroad

Travel abroad and learn a language as you immerse yourself 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 that everyone can get more out of their experiences when they learn new skills and the ability to strike up conversations with the people they live and work near.


Learning a local language, or a major language spoken around the world, will help you better understand the cultures and perspectives in your chosen destination.


As you learn a language abroad with us, you can choose from one-to-one or group 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 and reap the rewards that come from speaking another language.

Is studying languages abroad right for me?

Our Language Courses abroad will suit you if you want to invest in yourself while you travel. It will let you integrate with a local community and give you a new skill that you’ll be able to nurture for life.


You don’t need any previous language qualifications or experience; just the willingness to learn and try new things. Group Language Courses are also a good way of meeting others who are living in your community and getting to know the country, so you can 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, which also help you build your communication skills. Read our full list of projects for volunteering abroad.

How are Projects Abroad’s Language Courses different?

At Projects Abroad, we want to help you get the most out of your time abroad. Here are just a few elements of our projects that set them apart from many other language courses.


Be fully supported by staff


On these projects, you’ll learn from qualified teachers who are native speakers. You’ll also be supported by Projects Abroad staff during your course, and all the logistical aspects of your trip can be handled for you, taking the hassle out of travelling and living abroad.


A sociable experience


You’ll become part of a global network of volunteers, interns, staff and students, giving you the chance to meet people from around the world who share your interests and values.


Flexible study


You can choose the length and style of language course that suits you. If you’re already planning on volunteering or interning abroad, you can add one of the language courses to your project and do both.

Volunteers listen intently to their dedicated tutor to help them learn a language abroad.
