Financing your language study holiday with the CPF

Can I use my CPF for a language stay?

CPF training abroad

The best way to learn a foreign language is total immersion in the native country. If you have a CPF budget, you can use it to finance your stay. This tip is not just a tourist trip, but a real language stay with 17 to 21 hours of lessons a week. You’ll also have the opportunity to stay with a host family to make real progress in your language studies.

Where can I go on a language study holiday with my CPF?

Accessible to all budgets

At LangStart International, we offer language holidays to suit all budgets. As a result, you’ll be able to stay for as little as a week, for as long as you like. Depending on your availability, your language objectives, your CPF budget and your desires, we’ll prepare an unforgettable trip around the world for you. If you wish, you can of course supplement the budget for your stay with your own personal contribution.

Registration

Before registering, take the time to define your needs. That's why we advise you to consider all aspects of your stay.

The main objective

What are your ambitions at the end of this stay?

  • improve your language skills,
  • prepare for official certification (TOEIC, TOEFL, IELTS, Cambridge...),
  • acquire new language skills in a specific field (e.g. business English).

The destination

Although the destination is often a choice of the heart, it must also meet certain practical criteria to facilitate your daily life during your stay. Take into account any constraints in terms of budget, travel or time difference. Also choose a country that matches your preferences in terms of climate, culture and activities.

Accommodation

The choice of accommodation must also be carefully considered, as it must correspond to both your wishes and your budget, and will have a considerable impact on the quality of your stay. We offer several accommodation options:

  • University residence if you want to stay in a multicultural environment,
  • Homestay for complete immersion in the host country,
  • In a shared or private apartment if you prefer to be totally independent.

You can also choose to stay on your own, by opting for a package without accommodation.
