    CESA offers high quality language programs for ALL abilities. You can immerse yourself in the language and culture of a country for a few weeks or several months with start dates throughout the year. CESA has years of experience and has built relationships with all of the language colleges.

    All Gap Programs are held in accredited, quality language schools, providing language tuition for beginner to advanced levels, on courses of 1 to 36 weeks duration.

    If interested, students can choose to prepare and sit a variety of language exams, for example:
    DELF & DALF exams in France
    DELE exams in Spain
    TestDaF & Zertifikat Deutsch in Germany

    CESA Languages Abroad is based in the UK and has been offering language programs abroad; across Europe, Latin America & further afield, for students from the UK, USA, Europe and beyond for over 30 years (est. 1980).

    Gap Year courses provide total immersion in the lifestyle, culture and language of the country and if you wish (but it's not compulsory) can also prepare you for the nationally recognised language exams.

    Linguistically you make great leaps in your knowledge of a language and a Gap program is a great contrast to general schooling without representing a total break from the world of study. Best of all you get to meet and share these experiences with incredible people from all around the world. 

    Study a European language & see tangible results over 8 - 16 weeks
    Study Arabic or Russian & you will see tangible results over 12 - 20 weeks
    Study Japanese or Mandarin Chinese & 12 weeks will provide a beginner with a solid grounding in the language, and you will see tangible results in 20 - 24 weeks
    Of course you are always welcome to stay longer!
