We’re Elena and Carlo two students in the living learning English course in Bristol. We stayed with Lesley’s family for two weeks. We had the chance to meet and talk to her husband, her daughter and even two other students from different countries that lived in the house. We had one bedroom each, both very comfortable, with a bathroom that we shared. We had also got one TV each where we could watch a large variety of films. During our stay we went to visit the city center where we visited the science museum and the main historical buildings. We also had an incredible day at the zoo! Our teacher also organized a few meetings with other LLE students so that we could meet people from other countries and then hang out with them on our free time. The lessons are personalized for you even though you have them with your partner. In the lessons there are a lot of internet resources and games. It’s an incredible experience!

Hello! our names are Capucine and Polina . We are from France and Russia and we are 12 years old.
We stay in Margate with Ella, Jim, Alexandra their daughter,Tia the dog and Speedy Gonzales the tortoise. The house is big and cosy with a big garden. The house is near the beach. We spent a lot of time in the beach. The sea is very cold at first but then it becomes very warm. Every day ,we did activities . We went shopping in Westwood Cross (big shopping centre), we played Crazy mini-golf, table tennis, Scrabble, Guess who?, Wii on the TV, tennis at the seaside tennis court, we had a water fight with water guns in the garden, we picked cherries at the PYO farm, we went swimming in the swimming pool with waves and a big slide. We had a trip to Canterbury and visited Canterbury Cathedral, On Sunday we had a lot of fun in Dreamland, old-fashioned amusement park. On my, Capucine’s, birthday we went to the cinema. (I had also a present in the morning and a birthday cake with candles in the evening). We went to Turner Gallery and saw an exhibition there. It is called “Animals and us”. We saw a modern dance there too.
I, Polina, learned new words in our lessons especially polite words. I, Capucine, also learned a lot of new words (like parts of the body, opposites) and how to read the time. We learned how to speak to each other in English. We wrote our diaries every evening. Every evening we watched Harry Potter films: Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Harry Potter and the Order of Phoenix, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.
The food was yummy and very delicious. Our favourite was rice with curry.
We will recommend to come here because Ella is very kind and takes us to different places and comes with us. She swims with us in the sea and the swimming pool and goes down the big slide too.
I have been to Neston for three weeks, where we have done a lot of things
I went to the cinema to see “adrift”, also I went to the Bristol zoo where we saw a lot of different animals. We have seen cricket games and went shopping to Salisbury, Bath and Bristol. In Bath we saw the Roman Baths. We went by boat to the isle of wight to see a cricket match an the south coast.
We have walked with the dog to a field every day.
It’s a good experience, I liked it so much
I had two great weeks with a lovely family in Cardiff, visiting beautiful places such as Millennium Stadium, Cardiff Castle, St. Fagans National History Museum, as well as I have improved my English. All the time that I’ve been here I just felt at home. I strongly recommend this program and I would definitely repeat next year!
We are Rofl and Gueni we are both from Germany. We are 14 years old and we go to grade 8 in the same class. We are staying in Cottenham near Cambridge for two weeks with Daniela and her family
The Family is very polite and friendly. Daniela has to children Andrew who is twelve years and Emma who is eight years old. Her husband Deryck is also very polite and he took us to the Duxford Museum.
We had together a big and nice room upstairs. We also had a own bathroom. The house is very big and it has a nice garden. The food we ate was very delicious and healthy and we enjoyed it.
In the first week we did every day a trip. We drove 3 times to Cambridge and on Thursday we went with Deryck to the Duxford Museum. On Sunday we drove to London and the we went on a boat trip, to the London Eye and to the British Museum.
We really enjoyed our stay at Daniela’s house and we hope if you decide to come to LLE and stay at Daniela’s house you will have that great experience too.
I have been for two amazing weeks here in which I have done lots of different sport, such as playing football and tennis or going for a walk.
I have also visit two beautiful cities, Cardiff and Bristol.
I would recommend everyone to come here for learning English.
