Country Cousins is a family run business and we know every student by name – they are truly at the heart of our school. Between the ages of 7 and 17, Jose was a Country Cousins student and he never forgot the experience that he enjoyed in North Devon. So much so that he came back as an adult, with his wife Maribel and young family and bought the company in 2006.
We have our own team who collect students on arrival in the UK and transport them to North Devon in our own fleet of liveried coaches. The welfare and safeguarding of our students is our greatest concern and supervision is continual from arrival to departure.
We are one of only a few language schools that place students with local families and we have a strong community of homestay families offering our students an experience staying in a warm, friendly, comfortable and safe environment. This gives them the opportunity to experience English family life and to develop their language skills in everyday situations.
Many of our students return year after year – some have studied with us now for 8 consecutive summers – and we also enjoy visits from students whose parents stayed with us as Juniors.
