UKLC a major UK junior ELT provider has announced the acquisition of Linguastay, a homestay and immersive language company that offers programmes across England.

Linguastay, allows students to immerse themselves in the culture of their destination, offering a range of homestay course options that combine intensive language courses with real-world applications and interactions.

UKLC  said the strategic union marked a significant milestone for both organisations and set the stage for future growth and development of the Linguastay product.

We empower students to gain a deep understanding of language nuances and cultural contexts,” said outgoing owner Susan Jones. “By joining forces with UKLC, we believe we have made the right choice of partner to ensure we can continue to deliver the excellent immersive and high-quality courses we have become known for.

With this acquisition UKLC can further elevate the impact of its passion for immersive language learning by aligning the Linguastay programmes with its portfolio of junior courses at 13 centres across the UK, which typically welcome more than 6,000 students per year, making it one of the largest junior providers in the country.

Linguastay will continue to operate under its current brand and will remain at its head office in Chester, the organisation confirmed. Susan will step down from her day-to-day role but will stay on in an advisory capacity to help move the business into its next phase.

Clients and partners of Linguastay can expect the same level of excellence they have come to rely on while gaining access to a wider range of resources and opportunities through UKLC’s network.

Céline Aloé , Managing Director of UKLC, said,

We are delighted to be welcoming Linguastay into the UKLC fold. Together, we will be able to create an even more impactful language-learning experience for students around the world. Our shared dedication to promoting language proficiency and cultural understanding will drive us forward.
