Hello. This is Mikhail. I come from Russia. I’m 17. I stayed in Oxford for 4 weeks. I had 4 hours of lesson each day. My teacher was very qualified. Our lessons were very interesting and fascinating. My English has improved much. I learned a lot of new vocabulary and constructions. I had many interesting conversations with my host family. For our meals I tried a lot of different food, prepared by Elaine. I also learned how to prepare some such as baking bread and preparing panna cotta.
I am a 16-year-old student who has done the course Living Learning English in Oxford.
It has been an unforgettable experience. These 3 weeks have been incredible. I have done many excursions (such as London, and Blenheim Palace), seen many amazing colleges, many Harry Potter sets… and many more things. I should also mention all the things I have learned (especially vocabulary) in great and long lessons with a very friendly and enthusiastic teacher. The fact that you can decide your excursions makes the trip not only a great opportunity to learn but an extraordinarily interesting experience. I think it has been a great experience and the trip in which I have learned and practised the most.
I am from Germany and I have spent two weeks in Wallingford, which is near Oxford. It was really nice. I saw a lot, we went to Oxford twice,where we went on a tour of the colleges, we visited Buckingham Palace in London, Blenheim Palace, Henley and The Living Rainforest. This is a was a great experience, because you felt as if you were in a REAL Rainforest!!
My family was really lovely, because they tried hard to give me a wonderful stay. I learned a lot in the lessons, we did a lot of different activities for example we read newspaper articles, recorded my pronunciation to improve it, and we talked about films which we had watched and books I read. The room was clean and the food was excellent, because the host father cooked wonderful meals.
I would recommend everybody to come to this familiy!
