Things I have learnt about English and the English

– If you want to walk outside in the rain you will probably be offered an umbrella but not necessarily the company of your host. – in the opinion of my host’s mother, I chose the wrong family as she has been speaking English much longer than my teacher.


Al principio tenia muchas dudas porque mi ingles es muy pobre, pero una vez aqui, Martin me ha ayudado mucho en todo momento, no solo en sus clases sino durante todo el dia, un proferor 24h. Me he sentido como en casa! Me han tratado muy bien y he podido conocer y aprender muchisimas cosas. Ha sido una experiencia maravillosa!

English training in Bath

My name is Renate and I come from Germany. I stayed in Bath at Sarah Rees home from 11.10.2009 to 18.10.2009. To improve my English with the help of “Living Learning English” was one of my best decisions in my life. The individual, one to one training was very good for me to improve my English knowledge. I also liked very much the various creations of the lessons. Also the discussions with Sarah’s husband and her two daughters helped me, to loss my inhibitions in speaking. In addition the sightseeing tour in Bath and the hiking tour around Bath made this week to an unforgettable time for me. Thank you very much Sarah!!!

My stay in Bath with Sarah Rees 2011.

I stayed in Bath with the Rees family from May to June 2011.
They were all very nice and kind with me.
I enjoyed a lot the lessons with Sarah, it was very fun, interesting and I moved up from Upper Intermediate to Advanced very easily.
She showed me around Bath and we went to very interesting places like The Roman Baths, The Jane Austen Museum, The Georgian House and visited great places like Hay where we went to the Book Festival, Chichester, and Stonehenge (my favourite!).
I had an amazing time with Sarah and her family.
And Bath is a very beautiful and interesting place, it has a lot of places to go: museums, coffee shops, stores and nice parks where you can have relaxing walks and beautiful views.
I’d really like to go back to Bath someday and definitely stay with the Rees family again!
Thank you for your hospitality. I will never forget this amazing experience!!
