Hello, we are María and Marta, we are 20 and 15.We are sisters from Spain. We went to England to study English and we spent 3 weeks at Linda´s house in Hastings.
We combined our classes with interesting excursions through England. We went to London, Oxford, Ashford, Brighton, Ray…We´ve done a lot of different activities such as crazy golf, shopping, cycling, going to the cinema, visiting museums, disco´s night…
We´ve learnt a lot about English culture, history and traditions. We really enjoyed the English houses, churches, castles, towers and the green landscapes. We will always remember those days, we felt like in home with Linda´s family.
We met people of different countries like Chinese, Arabic, Polish, German…We spent nice time with them, we learnt some things about their cultures and we improve our speaking.
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.
Hi there guys, today I’m gonna tell you my experience with Living Learning English.
I had a very good time during my stay in London. I mean, the first day wasn’t even over and I already knew my level of english wasn’t as good as I thought. Yet, I learned a lot. The family I was in was simply awesome. They were funny, specially their son. We watched movies, Game of Thrones, played Risk…
And then there’s London. That city exposed itself before me… and I wasn’t able to live up to it. It let me in… and I lost myself inside it. Soho is the most bizarre place I’ve ever been , and Oxford Street is the best shopping street ever. Or at least it was, because it’s been three months since I left and now everything has changed again. But at the end that doesn’t matter. What matters is London. I saw it just as it is: a beautiful city full of life… of people… of things to do…
Anyway, that was basically my trip. It was really great. You should try.
I was in Clevedon near Bristol in a lovely family! It was one week with 5h by day so it was very intense but Yvonne was always interesting and patient. I have learned what I wanted and I have improved myself more than expected! We did such great things despite the fact that we didn’t have much time. We went to the Bristol balloon fiesta and we saw a movie! I really recommend LLE if you want to improve your English! It’s hard the first day but at the end of your stage you can see the difference on your English level.

Hello! My name is Ivan Bokhan. I’m 15 years old and I’m from Belarus. I staying in a nice two-story house in Cottenham , Cambridge. I will be here for two weeks, with Daniela, Deryck (her husband) and two nice children. I stay here with another student called Hugo. I’m really happy that I can stay with so nice family.
The family is really polite and funny. I think that is good that I can talk with native speakers. They have a children, Emma and Andrew (7-years old and 11-years old) and they are very nice and polite kids. I’m spending a lot of time with Andrew and we become a friends. I didn’t expect that in these family they have a children and I thought that it will be worse that without them but later we started to communicate very well.
This is very good that in our lessons we can decide the time of the lesson per day (we choose 5 hours per day) .
In our first lesson Daniela show us the fat book called “Phrases, Saying, and Quotation” and every lesson we need to take two frappes from these book and explain it. In the beginning it was hard but later it became easier.
In our lessons we work from the book as well as discussing exercises with my partner. And that was interesting and fun. Daniela reproduced texts for us and we listened to it. We had a lot of reading, speaking and working with exercises. I think that the main reason for this improvement is that I’m speaking English all the time. In lessons, with the children, on the excursion and with the partner. And I think that is important to think in English. I’ve been in England twice before, but this time was the best.
I was really impressed when I arrived. I went upstairs and I saw my room and it was awesome because the room is very big and we have our own bathroom. I shared the room with Hugo(my partner) but there is more than enough space for both of us. Our bedroom looks very big and clean and there are two windows so the room is nicely lit up the whole day.
But not only our bedroom is really comfortable. We live here in a big house, the sitting room as well as the dinning room are quite big.
Sometimes we have dinner in the big, nice and comfortable garden.I was extremely glad when I saw our house.
I’ve been in England twice before, but this time i had the best meals. We have three meals a day. In the morning we always have cereals with milk and orange juice. After lessons we usually have a lunch. Sometimes it is something lite like omelet or sandwiches. Near seven o’clock we have a dinner. Daniela always cooking something nice and tasty for example pizza, pasta, risotto, fish or chicken. And sometimes we can try very tasty desert like chocolate cake or “pavlova” cake.
Excursions was really interesting. One time we were in London and the other days we stayed in Cambridge.
In Cambridge we visited many different Colleges. For example the St. Johns college impressed me because it looks like the Hogwarts from Harry Potter. We had many activities in Cambridge, like visiting tho shopping centre, the Fitzwilliam Museum, swimming pool, aqua park, and I really enjoyed the boat ride in King’s University.
When we went to London we had the possibility to decide what we want to visit. So we decided to go on the London Dungeon. After this attraction we did a short boat ride which was very beautiful. We left the boat near the Tower Bridge so we climb to the top and took some beautiful photos and went by metro to the Picadilly Circus. The excursion to London was absolutely lovely.
In the end I want to say that the house, people, food, excursions was really great. Thank you “Living Learning English”!
It been one week when I arrived and the food is really good. We have three meal every days. For the breakfast we have cereal with juce a de sometime hot chocolat. When we have a little break between the lessons we have the lunch. We usually eat spaghetti carbonara or soup after that we usually play in the garden. When we are out we have fresh baguette sandwich. For the diner Daniela cook different dishes every evening, like a pizza, risotto, curie, ships, meat and many other things. She cook very well and we can eat as much as we like. The meal are so tasty and really delicious Arrivée et logement
Quant je suis arrivée, j’ai été très impressionné par la beauté de la maison. J’étais la première à arriver donc j’étais très timide avec Daniela et Derik, mais ils ont été très accueillant et chaleureux avec moi se qui ma tout de suite mise à l’aise. Je suis donc allée voir ma chambre. Celle-ci est très grande et très lumineuse. Moi et ma camarade avons un lit chacune avec une table de nuit chacune. Il y a une grande armoire et deux buffets ainsi qu’un bureau. Notre chambre comporte aussi une salle de bain toilettes ce qui est très agréable au quotidien. Nous avons trois fenêtre dont deux donnent sur le jardin. Celui-ci est très grand. A l’intérieur il y a un trampoline, des balançoires, un bassin avec des poissons ainsi qu’un porche avec une table et un hamac. Nous mangeons en général dans le jardin car c’est un endroit magnifique.
Cela va faire maintenant une semaine que je suis arrivé en Angleterre et la nourriture est vraiment bonne. Nous avons trois repas par jours. Pour le petit déjeuner nous mangeons des céréales et nous buvons du jus d’orange et parfois un chocolat chaud. Quand nous avons la pause déjeuné, entre deux leçons nous mangeons des spaghettis carbonara ou une soupe. Après sa, nous allons en général nous amusez dans le jardin. Quand nous sommes en sortie à l’extérieur nous mangeons des sandwichs dans de la baguette fraîche. Pour le dîné Daniela cuisine différent plats tous les soirs comme des pizzas, un risotto, du curry, des frites, de la viande et bien d’autres choses. Elle cuisine vraiment bien et nous pouvons manger à notre faims. Ses plats sont vraiment bon
Les leçons commence à 9h du matin. Au début de chaque leçons nous avons un test sur les verbes irréguliers. Pendant les leçons nous faisons en général 15 pages dans le cahier d’exercices. Si nous n’avons pas fait 15 pages pendant là leçons nous les avons en devoirs. Daniela est vraiment gentille avec nous et les leçons ne sont pas ennuyeuse car nous parlons beaucoup avec elle. Les leçons ne sont pas du tout stressante. Nous faisons aussi beaucoup de jeux avec elle. En une semaine nous avons appris beaucoup de choses et nous avons fait beaucoup de progrès
Nous sommes très heureuses par ce que nous aimons beaucoup les sorties et nous en avons fait beaucoup.Pour notre première sortie nous sommes allées à Cambridge où nous sommes allées au Cold Fiz Wiliam Museum. Nous y avons vue de magnifiques porcelaines et des tableaux de peintres célèbres telle que Picasso, Monet, Matisse, Degas, Renoir ainsi que beaucoup d’autre artiste. Par la suite nous sommes allés à Peimbroke College. Nous avns donc mangé dans les jardins de cette université. Ceux-ci sont très agréable et beaucoup d’étudiants viennent y manger, étudier ou juste se relaxer. Après ça nous sommes montés en haut de la tour de l’église St Marie d’où nous pouvions admirer le panoramas et la vue imprenable sur Cambridge. Par la suite nous avons pris une barque sur la rivière Camb, nous avons vue plus d’université et grâce au guide nous avons appris des choses sur l’histoire très riche de ces universités.
Le second jour de sortie nous nous sommes rendus à Londres où nous sommes allés au London Aquarium (l’aquarium de Londres). C’était vraiment magnifique ! Par la suite nous avons pris un bateau touristique sur la Tamise. Nous y avons vue beaucoup d’immeubles parfois un peu étrange mais se fut une très belle balade où nous avons enfin pu voir le Tower Bridge. C’était incroyable !
Pour notre troisième jours de sortie nous sommes allés à Wimpool Estate. Il y avait un jardin vraiment incroyable, avec beaucoup de magnifique fleurs. Wimpool Estate comportait aussi une ferme où nous avons pu y voir un cheval, des ânes, beaucoup de porc des chèvres, des lapins et bien d’autres animaux. Il y avait aussi un grand palais vraiment magnifique.
I enjoyed two weeks in Hastings with my teacher Jennifer, her husband Tim and his cousin Riz. The teacher organised the classes with different activities and materials which helped me to improve my level of English. Not only did I learn in 4 hours a day classes, but also it was awesome to enjoy conversations and excursions with the family. We visited an art gallery, many villages and towns of East Sussex and a film with live music in St. Leonards. Staying two weeks in Hastings was amazing for improving my English, for travelling in this area, doing fun activities and learn more about English history. Thanks, Jennifer & family!
We spent 2 unforgettable week in Brighton with Marie Strebler.
Marie is a wonderful person and a professional teacher. She is energetic, optimistic and cheerful. And our lessons were lively, interesting, bright and results are useful in life.
Also we had a rich excursion program, which Marie organized and conducted for us.
We want to tell her many thanks for the time spent together!
