School Accreditation

We select our language schools very carefully on the basis of various quality characteristics. An important indicator of quality education is the accreditation by ACCET (Accrediting Council for Continuing Education & Training). This organization accredits organisations who excel in the area of education. ACCET is accredited itself by the U.S. Department of Education since 1978. An accreditation through the ACCET means “A Partnership of Quality”.
The US government regularly monitors the recognized training institutions, thus ensuring that a certain quality standard is met. ALTO (Association of Language Travel Organisations) is a global umbrella organization of language schools and travel agencies. It has the goal to enforce appropriate policies and standards for language learning in the respective language country. The criteria of quality includes reliability and competence as well as accurate information and good customer service.

With this option, you can experience the local traditions and customs first hand. However, for those who prefer a mode independent accommodation, then you have the option of a shared or private apartment. With this, you can meet other students from around the world and many great friendships can be made.

The shared apartments in Miami consist of three spacious bedrooms and two shared bathrooms. The living room with a sofa and fully equipped kitchen (with pots, pans, dishes, glasses, coffee maker and chopping boards) will be used by up to four other residents. Bed linen and towels are provided and are changed weekly. However, beach towels are not included so the student must bring their own.

The private apartment, which is just a five minute walk from the beach, is a 1-bedroom apartment with a bed, bathroom and kitchenette. Kitchen utensils are available and can be used by the students.

Host Family

Staying with a host family is both an exciting and worthwhile choice. Host families reveal a very good insight into the daily life of an American family. Students can learn a lot, significantly improve their language skills and learn phrases in everyday situations. In Miami there is no such thing as "a typical host family" – the accommodation can be either in apartments or in a family house.
The students can choose between single and double rooms. Each room is fully furnished: bed, desk, dresser and cabinet. The sheets and towels are provided by the host parents. The washing facilities of the family can be shared - as often as needed when agreed with the family. In addition, we ensure there is an internet connection as well.
