Projects Abroad Language Courses

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.
