Hello, my name is Diego and I am from Barcelona. This summer I spent a four weeks course with Leaving Learning English in Wales where, as the title says, I had a wonderful time.
The house where I stayed is located in the Welsh capital, Cardiff, in a very quiet and beautiful neighborhood called Whitchurch. Cardiff is such a lovely place where you can find whatever you want and you can do almost all kinds of activities like visiting the amazing Cardiff castle or the very interesting National museum, but in my opinion the best activity that I’ve done twas visiting the St Fagans museum, a place where there are typical Welsh old buildings and a fantastic scenery. Apart from this there is a huge stadium called the Millennium Stadium where takes place different sorts of sports, but especially rugby “The king sport of Welsh”. In addition, if you like go shopping in Cardiff there are a lot of different shops (traditional or moderns) and an enormous commercial center called John Lewis. I won’t mention more amazing places because I would never finish, so come here and discover this by your own, I am sure you won’t regret.
The family who I stayed with was really nice and kind with me. The mother of the family and my teacher is Sophie, I strongly recommend her as a teacher, because I have improved my English quite a lot and the classes were really enjoyable for me. Daniel the father of the family is very nice and funny, you can learn interesting things from him. Finally, the two children, Gethin and Gwenan, are really friendly persons who I spent a very good time with them, don’t worry if you are a little bit shy, with them you won’t feel uncomfortable.
That is my experience, I had a fantastic time with this family and in this place. So if you aren’t sure to try this because you don’t feel confident or whatever other reason, I have to tell you that you will have a good time, you will improve a lot your English and you will know another culture.
