Language and Culture West offer a unique Homestay.



At your teacher's home every mealtime, every car journey and every leisure activity is an opportunity to improve English language skills.

        We are an Irish family, Donal and Janet Hughes and daughter Aisling who provide Homestays ,here at our homes in Co Mayo.  We also arrange an English Language Course and a very full Programme of Outdoor and Cultural Activities.

Learning English at your teacher's home ensures that you really can have a genuine total immersion experience. 

Learning English as part of a small group of motivated people is a rewarding and enriching experience. Gain the confidence to speak ,only in English, throughout your stay, even with your friends and family.

Our aims are to create a relaxed, friendly atmosphere and to ensure that our students speak in English at all times.

We have devised various methods that increase confidence to make this possible.
We are here to guide and assist.

We welcome students of all ages, including family groups.   

Our English Language courses are conducted by certified TEFL and TESOL teachers ( all family members). 

Courses are available for all levels. Beginner to Advanced. 

Individual learning requirements can be catered for.

The Homestay experience we offer is unique. In addition to accommodation and meals we also include all our guests in our many and varied daily outdoor and cultural pursuits. It's a genuine  family experience.

We also organise an Activity and Cultural Programme that is exciting, interesting and suitable for all ages. 

Therefore, in addition to formal English Language lessons, students are occupied each afternoon, evening and weekend in the company of English speakers. This is the key to the success of our unique programme.

Our groups are limited to 8-10 students. You can choose arrival and departure dates that suit you! We are very flexible!
