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 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.

Hi, I’m Olga and I’m from Russia. I went to the UK to improve my English speaking skills.

I was very lucky because I stayed in St. Albans with the awesome family – Kate and Peter. They are very hospitable and open-minded people.

Kate and Peter took me to visit St. Albans, London and Cambridge. The last was a really amazing! I saw a lot of sights as well as not so typical for tourists places. Kate and Peter are excellent guides!

Also, I had 5 hours table lessons per day and it was good to remember what I forgot and to learn new.

Unfortunately, I was there only for one week, but I improved my English a lot. Many thanks for Kate!

I highly recommend all to take an English course with LLE and Kate!

Carmen in England

My name is Carmen and I am from Madrid. I was looking for an English course and I knew about this possibility of 1:1. I thought it was the best for me because I could only come for one week and my level was a little low. I need English for my work in Insurance.

Before I started I was very nervous and excited. When I arrived I met Lesley (late at night!) and I had a good feeling.  The course is hard work, but very focussed on my needs and I appreciate my teacher’s work for it.

And this experience shows me a lot more than a language. Lovely people, lovely family and new ideas about a different culture. I love Lesley’s house, the garden, my room and the view from my window. And it only rained one day – fantastic!

I recommend this experience. If only I could stay longer!

Studying English in St Albans




My name is Hajime Takahashi (Haji) and I’m a Marine Engineer from Yokohama, Japan and working in SingaporeIt was a week holiday of my job and I stayed my host family’s home in St Albans.  It was my first time in Europe.  Kate and Peter (my host parents) took me around the town and explained me about its history and culture, also gave me many chances to meet and talk with their family and friends in some parties, theatre, church, pub, London, Cambridge…etc.  They were very kind to listen to my English and talk friendly with me.  Everything I saw in England made me really interested and excited. I love British English, British culture, British people, and everything in the UK. I’d like to say ‘Thank you very much for Kate and Peter’s great hospitality’.

The best option for my job

I think that learning English with Dave have been the best option for my job. I learn a lot of grammar, but the most important is the Dave method. We enjoy learning and speaking and for me it was a good experience. I needed to prepare a presentation of my company and Dave helped me in this Project. He taught me the best form to speak with new customers about my company. Although we visit all art museums and enjoyed talking about art, design, Films… Thank you Dave and the rest of the family! Carmela is the best cook that I Know in London



Great Study in London

I had three months English course. It was lovely. Mr Lawrence is very professional teacher. He is teaching to me many new things. We went many intersting places. Mr Lawrence very good teacher, I recommend him to other students. Now I know English much better than I knew it 3 months ago. With Mr Lawrence I didn’t have any problems, with him and his family I only had positive emotions

Week in the UK

Hello, my name is José and I’m writing to all future students who want to learn English in the UK with Living Learning English. I went to the UK because I need to improve my English for my job. I was in Bath for four weeks and one week more in St. Albans. It’s a very good way to learn English because we have to speak English all the time. We had lessons every morning for four hours. In Bath, I stayed in Sarah’s home. She has a nice family with her husband Robin and their two children (12 and 15 years old). I enjoyed being there a lot. Bath is a beautiful town with a lot of museums. It’s an interesting place because of its history, including Roman times. I also visited Bristol, where I saw the Suspension Bridge. We visited Stonehenge, Salisbury Cathedral and the Roman Baths and museums in Bath. I played tennis with Paul, a tennis coach, who taught me a lot. In St. Albans I was with David and his wife Stephanie. They are very friendly, and lovely people. I wanted to stay more weeks with them, but I had to return to Spain earlier than I expected. We did a lot of things there, but the most exciting for me was when we went to Cambridge. I recommend this course to all of you.

A Great Experience

It was a great experience – I learnt a lot in two weeks. I really enjoyed the course – Barbara is an excellent teacher. I found the Business English very challenging but also practical and useful for my career. We chose the topics together so I studied the subjects which I found important for me. I loved going to London with Barbara because we visited so many interesting and different places. She’s an excellent cook too. It was fun.
