My father drove me to Wallingford.When he left me at Shan and Andrew’s house I felt nervous and anxious but Shan and I went to Wittenham Clumps.There was a beautiful panoramic view of Oxfordshire. After that I felt a little less stressed.
I have enjoyed this week. The lessons were interesting and fun. I soon felt at ease. I learnt a lots of things about Christ Church and the real Alice before my visit to Oxford. It is an old and mysterious city. Visiting the colleges was fascinating. When we went to Henley where I saw a veteran car rally at Phyllis Court Club. Yesterday I went shopping with an English girl who is called Annie..
I have eaten some delicious English food including fish and chips, a cream tea at Stephen and Rose’s home and birthday cake at Alan’s party. Tonight I’m going to Bunkfest, a festival of folk music and dance in Wallingford.
During this week, Shan has taken lots of photographs of me, which I put in my journal. It’s a lovely souvenir of my time in England.
We arrived two weeks ago with a level A2 and now I can see on my report I have improved my English a lot. We spent lot of time outside, Samantha and her family are very kind to us. I have visited lots of things and discovered British towns such as Gloucester and Cheltenham. Thanks to them I want to come back in England another time. We enjoyed a lot our trip in England, in Newent.

My name is Yuk Yi and I come from Hong Kong. I’m going to boarding school in September. To make better my English I stayed with Alison and her family in her house near Fordingbridge in the New Forest. My stay was 6 weeks. This was my first time in England. I had a very fun time. We visited Salisbury, Southampton, Portsmouth, Longleat Safari Park, Paulton’s Park, Windsor, Oxford, Brighton and London. I went swimming and went to the gym every week and I went horse riding.
Ali cooked yummy food, especially fish which I like. She let me cook noodles. We bought them in a Chinese supermarket.
Natascha, Charlotte and Harry were funny. I went with Harry to a theme park and I went swimming with Charlotte.
The lessons were very interesting. I learned many things. Sometimes we played games.
Hello, my name is Kyoko. I’m from Japan. I’m 11 years old. This is my first time in England. I stayed with Lyne and Stephen Rolph and it was a very nice time. One day I went to London and I saw “Mamma Mia”. It is a musical. It was very funny. I like this musical and I want to look this one more time. This homestay is my first time but it was a lot of fun. I think I don’t forget this time! And i want to go to England with my family.
My name is Cristina, I’m from Spain and I’m 20 years old. I’ m going to tell you a little bit about my wonderful experience in Ipswich, England, where I stayed for three weeks.
My host mother, and also my English teacher, is called Michelle Miller. She lives with her husband Jeremy, and they have two sons, Tom and Ben, who come from time to time to visit their parents because they´re both working in London and Canterbury, respectively. They also have a very friendly cat called Tigger. They are a lovely family who make you feel like you’re at home from the beginning.
I really like their house, which is actually a converted thatched barn from the 1580s. It’s a very peaceful place to live because it is surrounded by fields with stunning views and lovely sunsets.
My room was very warm and I had spectacular views of the fields through my window.
Every morning I had class for three hours. It can sound like so many hours, but honestly, they were very enjoyable. Michelle is a really good teacher with very entertaining activities and useful methods in which you learn a lot without realising it.
After having lunch, we went on excursions to many different places nearby our house such as Lavenham, Dedham, London, Cambridge, etc. We did some lovely routes on foot and by bike. Excursions are another way of learning new vocabulary and some interesting history and way of life of England. I couldn’t even choose my favourite excursion because each one was different and really interesting.
The food was delicious and I also went to some typical English pubs to have “Fish and chips” and met some of Michelle`s friends.
This has been my first stay in England and I’m really sure that it isn’t my last one. I’m really looking forward to coming back again. I’m very pleased for having met this family and I highly recommend this experience. Undoubtedly for me, this is the best way to improve your English!
My name is Ferran Pau Capdevila and I am from Barcelona. I passes a very nice two weeks living in Blackwell, a little village near Birmingham. I really enjoyed my trip because was my first time in England and is an amazing country.
I have been with a very kind, friendly and happy family and I improved my english a lot. Also we visited interesting places like Oxford colleges, Worcester Foregate, Stratford or the Air Force Museum in Cosford.
In summary, it was one of the best and most useful experience of my life and I strongly recommend to everyone learn english with “Living Learning English” because is the best way to improve your english quickly.
These two weeks that I have spent in Cardiff have been great! The English classes “one to one” with my lovely teacher Kath, very good. Cardiff is very nice. It’s a place worth a visit. The people are very friendly, the food is very good and there are many places to go sightseeing. It has been a fantastic experience!
I have had 2 fun weeks in Poole. I stayed with Jayne and Matin Jackson and their baby daughter Ariya. We saw ‘Cats’ the musical, went shopping in Poole, Castlepoint and Bournemouth and visited Salisbury and Stone Henge as well as other things.I had classes were well I learned many new words. The food was delicious. It was pretty fun because we went on interesting trips. I particularly enjoyed my birthday which I spent in London. I was given a cake at home. The family are lovely and they have creatures such as 2 cats, a dog and 2 turtles. The room was quite comfortable. The house is nice and spacious. I really liked the sea, the beach and the time I spent there. I also really liked the concert Cats, I received many wonderful memories.
