Cambridge stay

Living Learning English Review:

 

Hello, my name is Arthur and I’m from Switzerland.I’m fifiteen.I really enjoyed my two weeks stay in Daniela’s family. My english has improved and I’m satisfied about it.

 

Study:

 

Everyday exept the weekend, I got up at 7:30, the lessons started at 8:15 and finished around 11:30. I think that these two weeks in Cambridge have been very useful, knowing that I’m going to be studying IGCSE’s next year, and it’s also a good experience. I practiced my writing skills a lot, and I think it helped me improve my english.

 

Activities:

 

Everyday, we went out to visit a different place. The father of the family: Derick, once took me to an aircraft museum. He knows almost everything about these planes: their history, what they were used for, the countries who used to use them, and much more.

 

Food:

 

The food was delicious. Daniela is a great cook. She makes her pizzas from scratch, which makes them particularly tasty. I really enjoyed them.

 

Family:

 

 

The Thakes are lovely. They were always there to help if there was any problems and they are very friendly. I spent a pleasant time with them during these two weeks in Cambridge.

And we had some fun on the pedal boats. One day we went to the cinema and watched “Jurassic world: Fallen Kingdom”.

We loved shopping in Westwood Cross shopping centre and Canterbury shops are the best.

Two amazing weeks in Leicester

Hello! I’m Niruta from Barcelona in Catalonia and I’ve been staying two weeks in Leicester living with my teacher Karen and her family.

For me it was a very nice experience where I learned english and also I got a lot of greats moments with this family. For example we went to visit Leicester City Centre and it was very nice and now I can saty that I’m an expert of Richard III and and also we went to the country side and we visited Sheffield.
With my teacher Karen she helped me and now I’m feeling that my english level it’s improving and for me this two weeks had been very helpful and has also helped me to consolidate basic concepts.
I recommend this type of course to people who want to learn english and live a period of time like english people.
I’m very happy of this new experence for my and I’m sure that I will repeat this great adventure again.
 
I will miss this amazing family!!!
 
Thanks for all.

Two weeks in Edimburgh

I’ve spent two weeks in Edimburgh in July with Heather Sutherland and her two adorable cats Rolo and Oriana. I met some members of her family and they were lovely.

I had never been in Scotland before and I really loved the city and the unusual hot weather. During the course, I had English lessons in the morning, from Monday to Friday, and then we used to visit several places such as museums, Calton Hill, the Edimburgh Castle, we climbed Arthur’s Seat (where there are an amazing view of the city and surroundings), the Scottish Parliament, the Kelpies, the Falkirk Wheel… The latter is what you will enjoy the most if you are interested in engineering. 
 
I really enjoyed my time there and I learned a lot.

Two weeks in a sunny Bristol

Hi, I am Magdalena from Bilbao.

Last May I spent two weeks with Lesley and David in their charming house in Bristol. When I arrived they gave me a warm welcome and since the beginning I felt very comfortable with them. The house was very well prepared to develop this kind of learning program, in fact, my room was very nice. They took care of everything I needed and at the same time, I had time to enjoy the stay on my own, something that I really appreciated.

Lesley Mathew is a very professional teacher and she has everything very well organized to make the most of the English learning process: the method, materials as well as, the valuable suggestions she gave me. I had four hours/day classes and we did some amazing excursions to Bristol and Bath. We visit several museum and I was really impressed by the quality of their expositions.

I feel very grateful for having the opportunity to live such an interesting experience and  I recommend this program to everyone who wants to boost his English.

Ah! And the weather was incredible.

My vacations in Pawlett

During these holidays, I slept in a nice house with two adults very funny and helpful. With my flatmate they offered us different activities and excursions. The classes went well with Chris. He is very understanding and listening. Gill cooked very well and she made the incredible desserts . The adaptation was a little difficult the first days but then everything worked fine. The only negative point of this stay is the lack of activities in this village.

Visiting Wales for the first time

When you arrive at a place for the first time, you`ll never know what is going to happen. But in that adventure, I have discovered an amazing place and I have met the most wonderful family ever. My name is Cristina Cortes, I have been in Cardiff for two weeks, and I will never forget one of the most fantastic weeks in my life. Thank you for all.
