An outstanding six week trip organized by Tribe for my daughter to visit Spain in 2021 during lockdown and all restrictions. A 100% successful trip which has seen my daughters Spanish come on leaps and bounds. Tribe on the ground there in Spain also organised day trips for skiing, boating, historical sites and beach days.

I know other friends who have done exchanges elsewhere with a big group of friends and have come back with little to no new Spanish. So I am so glad I chose Tribe as I really felt immersed and thrown in the deep end… which I loved. Going to a Spanish school and having the extra classes made me come home feeling really confident with my language. And I still text my new Spanish friends on Instagram to keep it up. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience in all honesty.
Aoife Wilkins, TRANSITION YEAR SPAIN
By week 3 of this trip I really did not want to leave. I had one of the most amazing experiences of my life, made so many new friends, tried so many new things, and most importantly my French had improved remarkably. I would highly recommend completing a course such as this if anyone has any interest in learning a second language.

The two weeks I spent in Biarittz were two of the best weeks of my life. I made some amazing friends and memories. It was better than I could have ever imagined. I’d recommend this course to anyone who wants to improve their French and to experience the French culture.

“Just to let you know that Alannah had a wonderful time with Flore. David and Elodie were very kind and good to her and made her feel very much at home. She had a wonderful experience and we are very grateful to them.”

“Mary Kate had a very successful three and a half weeks with Charlotte and family. She was anxious leaving Dublin but once she settled in, she was very happy with the host family and at school. She also really liked the French teacher. The host family made a great effort with her and she had lots of outings. So, all in all, it was a great experience for her and she feels her French is much improved!
We felt the host family was well chosen and would happily recommend LLI/Tribe.”
Jo O’Connor, Parent to Mary-Kate, Muckross, TY France
“Eve has had a wonderful three weeks in France. Her host family have been amazing, they couldn’t have treated her better, she has loved the teacher she had for the French classes and I think she will be very sad to leave Nice and all her new friends!”
Lorainne Lavelle, Parent to Eve, General French, Nice
“I spent 7 weeks in a town called Elche near Alicante in the south of Spain during TY and went to a local Secondary School. I really enjoyed my time there and felt that my language skills improved a lot. Also, I really liked the family that I stayed with and the Spanish students in my class who were very friendly. I definitely feel on my return to school that I understand and speak Spanish much better making it easier for me to learn grammar and prep for exams. I found the whole trip a total success and would definitely recommend this experience.”
Harry Mansfield, Conleth’s, TY Spain
“Tribe Language are amazing! I did all of transition year abroad with them and they were so helpful. My Mam and I couldn’t have asked for anything better. Cathy and her team were always there for me and my Mam, as were their partners in France! I would highly recommend choosing Tribe Language if you are planning on going abroad or sending your child abroad, there’s no one better!”
Grace McGoldrick, TY France
I can honestly say that those two weeks in Berlin were the two best weeks of my life. I made so many great friends and amazing memories and I definitely feel as though my German has improved. I would whole-heartedly recommend a trip like this to anyone. Whether it is to improve your German or even experience the rich culture, all I will say is book that plane ticket.

Just to say a big thank you for organising Robert’s stay in Valencia and especially for the wonderful family he stayed with. Rosa Pitarch and her son Victor are a very special family. Rosa treated Robert like her own son and took care of him so well, taking him out with family and friends and helping him with the language as much as she could. We went over for four days expecting to meet Rosa and Victor once – she absolutely spoiled us -taking us to beauty spots off the beaten track, authentic Spanish restaurants and even a wonderful concert one night

“I would strongly encourage anyone who has an opportunity like this to grab it, and to make the most of it as I can’t emphasize how fast the time will fly.”
Tadhg Mangan, CBC Monkstown, Highschool France
Just a quick note to thank you for the amazing time Róise had in Valencia. Her family Alicia, Jose luiz, Lidia and Mario Lopez were absolutely incredible. From the moment she landed, the family looked after her so well. They went way beyond the call of duty and helped Róise in every way possible. They were so kind, supportive and helpful at all times. Róise loved every single minute she spent with them. She was very sad leaving them yesterday! It was such a joy for us to know how happy Róise was with them and how well she was being looked after. We cannot thank you enough. If we hear of anyone wanting to improve their Spanish, we will direct them to you. Many thanks!
Sinead Ferry, Parent of Róise, TY Spain
