Judith & Sheffield – a great experience

I´m Daniela and visited Judith and her lovely family in Oct. 2017 for 2 weeks in Sheffield. I must say, Judith is a great teacher with a lot of patience, enthusiasm and professionalism. She knows how to motivate you and she never gets tired of explaining and answering all the questions. Thank you, Judith 🙂

Her different teaching methods provide the necessary variety during the lessons, but also during the social activities (pub quiz, yoga, jogging, …) and excursions.

In these two weeks I could improve my English skills in different areas and Judith managed to boost my confidence, so that I achieved most of my goals. 

I can recommend, in any case, an 1:1 tuition course with Judith.

Wonderful one week home tuition course!

First of all, I’d like to say that I enjoyed my home tuition course very much. I had great time during my stay in Bristol. I was there for only one week, but it was amazing.
My teacher and her family are wonderful people and they are so friendly, I enjoyed every day spent with them.
The excursions I had were very interesting and fascinating. I believe, that during this one week course I improved my English, brought it to a higher level.
That is why I am very grateful to you for giving me such an opportunity and experience, it was really awesome.

Business in Bristol

My company give me the opportunity to travel to Bristol for a business course of 30 hours.

Karen and Brad are a very friendly family and all time I was very confident and comfortable with them.

The course had 30 hours for 1 week and seemed a hard course but I was wrong because the classes run very quickly and on Friday afternoon I had a lot of exercises and material .

I have never spent 6 days speaking English all the time and I am sure that my level has improved

I am glad to have had  this course in Bristol

Gill, teacher Brighton

Teacher, Gill Stephens, has a great experience and she really knows to adapt lessons and teacher methods to the needs to the student. She has motivated me in my learning process and in adition to the day-to-day lessons, she has been able to detect my limitations and boundaries. She helped me to work out a teaching training in the long term. I am absolutely delighted for her help. She is, certainly, the best English teacher that I have ever had.

Thanks to Gill I have achieved to improve my English skills and to gain more self confidence. I am very satisfied with the progress made. Excellent!

A wonderful internship with LLE team !

I have just completed an amazing internship with LLE.

I spent four weeks working with all the team, learning how the school works and how the courses are administered.

Thanks to LLE, I had the opportunity to live with a wonderful host family, explore Bristol, and event visit London, Oxford, Bath and Cardiff!

I experienced English culture, improved my English and developed many professional skills in a friendly and welcoming environment.

During my internship, everyone was very supportive, patient, and took the time to explain anything I didn’t understand.

Thank you LLE for an excellent experience!



My trip to Bristol with Lesley and her family

Having returned to Spain after three weeks in Bristol studying English with Lesley and his lovely family and have to say it has been a great experience.

As not everything in life is studying, after our three-hour class in the morning, and after lunch, watching the news and practicing my English speaking with Lesley on them, in the afternoon, I had free time for tourism. Sometimes accompanied by Lesley and others on my own, have had the posibility to visit Clifton Suspension Bridge,St Mary Redcliffe Church, St Mary Redcliffe Church,Bristol Cathedral,The Georgian House, The Red Lodge and so on. And even take a turn on weekends in Bath, Stonehenge, Salisbury Lacock, Wells, Wales.I’ve also had the opportunity to practice my english with others students staying at Lesley´s house, which gaves a bonus to my stay.

In short, my trip was a perfect combination of learning the language, and culture journey that has allowed me to meet other cities, other customs, other culture.

I want to thank from here to the LLI organization, and Fran and Pauline, who were our companions, great day we spent browsing the Avon River, visiting Brunel’s ss Great Britain and having lunch.

My stay in Clevedon

During 8-21 September 2013 I had my English course in Clevedon, with a very nice and qualified teacher Yvonne Tucker. I enjoyed our lessons, they were useful for me and all topics were really interesting, because Yvonne tried to find teaching materials according to my interests, that was very important,  it made me always be interested during the learning process. Another important part of my course was conversations. I spoke in my lessons on different subjects, and after them, because I lived at the teacher’s family and had to communicate, and that was precious practice!

It was my first time in the United Kingdom, so everything was interesteing to me. With my teacher we visited Bristol, Bath, London, Weston-Super-Mare, Oxford.  All the trips were fantastic! I really enjoyed them!

I would like to say THANK YOU to Living Learning English and Yvonne Tucker and her family for these wonderful days which I spent together with you and your help! Certainly I have improved my English, and when I get back to my work in Ufa, Russia, it will help me in my work.

I would like to say to people who are thinking to take a homestay course with Living Learning English: do not doubt, this is a unique program which makes your English better in every way.


One week in London

I’m Antonio from Valencia (Spain) and I spent a  week in a comfortable house located in Wandsworth Common (London).

I had an unforgettable experience: lessons arranged connecting with my background and nice excursions: London Eye, Thames Barrier, Greenwich, Hatfield House and the Science Museum. I also had the chance to get involved in volunteering.

I really recommend this experience because it gave me the opportunity to face common situations that help me improve my confidence when speaking English.

One week in Cardiff


Definitely fantastic. I only spent a week in Cardiff with my teacher Kathryn and her husband Huw. Cardiff is a really nice city. You only need 20 minutes walking from the house’s teacher to city centre, fairly close. Kathryn showed me the Castle, Millennium stadium, National museum and the Bay. My course had 30 hours in one week, so it was an intensive and hard week. I had the chance to brush up on my knowledge of English and I learnt lots of new tools for business. About the family, only one comment: Absolutely homely, patient, open-minded and with a very good sense of humor.  I am looking forward to having another chance like this.

Cheer up!!.Cardiff is waiting for you.

My immersive training in Bristol

One week after my trip to Bristol, I can say that “I have grown up”. Most of my fears disappeared thanks to my teacher, Lesley. Now I feel more confident.

Don’t be afraid, whatever your accent, your origin, your age, your background, English is not so terrifying! So, go ahead!
