Great new experience for me: I had no idea this kind of homestay courses existed at all! I totally recommend it, and I recommend it with Gill Stephens! Gill is a highly experienced teacher, she will adapt to whatever your learning needs are and fit the lectures to your interests. Both Gill and his partner (Nick) will pay attention to every detail to make you feel at home.
Hello, I am Filip. I am 21. I am from the Czech Republic. I lived in this big house with Ella’s family, who are Jim, the husband, Alena and Alexandra, the girls, Tia, the dog and Speedy Gonzales, the tortoise. I spent with them three weeks and I had a lot of experience here. I visited three castles: Walmer Castle with a beautiful garden, Deal Castle and I went to Dover Castle twice because it is so big that we did not have enough time to see it in one day. Ella took me to the Charles Dickens Museum in Broadstairs, Bleak House where Charles Dickens wrote “David Copperfield” and smugglers museum.
Alena and her German friend Sofie took me to Turner Contemporary Gallery and saw the “Animals and us” exhibition. I prefer historical museums.
Jim took me to the city of Canterbury and I visited Canterbury Cathedral.
I was studying five hours a day. I came here to prepare for my exams at University. I feel that it was very good for me. I think I made a lot of progress. I had free weekends for full day excursions.
I wish to be here longer.

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.
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.
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.
I had a great experience with Vera and David. Very nice area in the suburbs of Cheltenham with lots of green spots and quite atmosphere. At ten minutes from the center by car. We enjoyed visiting the surroundings. I loved when we went to Oxford, amazing experience. I totally recommend this family.
During the last two weeks we had so much fun !!! Between the lessons the activities were really exciting !! Kayaking, walking, playing was our daily activity. We also did shopping and we went once to the beach !! We have seen also a lot of typical things from this country like the architecture of the buildings or these Morris dancers.
We both enjoyed it a lot won’t ever forget the time we spent here !
