And again Tockwith with the Folkards

We as a couple had a magnificent stay with our teachers, the Folkards.
Due to being a little under the weather, we were not able to go swimming. However, there were some nice trips: to the University of York, a shopping trip to York, a cosy visit to the local pub and lots of walks through the rural countryside around Tockwith. We even took part in our teacher’s drawing course with local folks. We also enjoyed preparing the meal together, playing language games and having TV evenings with the news and some Dr. Who episodes. It was always nice to talk about anything with our teachers.

Again, it was a good stay with the Folkards.

Tockwith-worth a visit!

As a couple we had a wonderful stay in Tockwith close to York with our teachers Lois and Nick.

Every day, we learned English for four hours in a 1 to 1 situation which was very encouraging and effective. In the evenings we had interesting activities like:

  • excursions, e.g. to the picturesque York or exploring the nice countryside around the nearby villages;
  • sports activities like cycling and bowling;
  • or a nice dinner at our teachers home or an Indian restaurant.

On one day we even started the early morning with swimming at the local swimming pool.

It was just a one week stay but it was filled with versatile learning and several physical activities that it felt like two weeks. We really enjoyed our time with our teachers and were very sad when we had to leave.
