Two weeks in Scotland!

Hi, this is Francesca and Ksenia,we’re seventeen, from Italy and Russia.
We’re living on a fabulous farm in Tealing, twenty minutes from Dundee. We visited the whole area,we went to the mountains near Dunkeld,we visited the seaside in St Andrews,where there is a famous golfcourse,we went to Edinburgh where we met another teacher and her students, and together walked around the Castle.
We went to Dundee Rep Youth Dance Festival, where there were typical Scottish dancing and Scottish songs with bagpipes.
You must come to visit Scotland because it’s a beautiful combination of fascinating scenery and you also must to try the traditional food,like smoked salmon, haggis ,oatcakes and porridge.
We’re very happy because our English has improved so much and we have learnt a lot of new vocabulary and now we know all Scottish customs and we’re looking forward to coming back again!
Thank you for our gorgeous teacher and her great family!

Hello, my name is Anna, i’m from Russia, Saint-Petersburg. I’m 15 years old. I came to Cardiff for 4 weeks. This is my third visit to England. I was in London last summer, in Kent(Sandwich) last September and in Cardiff this summer. I really liked this family. Sophie – she was my teacher, is very friendly and good. I really enjoyed lessons with her. She lived with husband and 2 children. Gwenny is her daughter, she is 17 years old, and she is very friendly and good too. We have been in cinema twice and went to the shopping centre together. I really enjoyed spend time with her. Gathin is Sophie’s son. He is 15 years old and he is very funny and friendly too. On the  weekends we had a picnic in the park, we  took a boat and rowed for  1 hour. I really liked it. Also, we visited lots of excursions. Visited Millennium Stadium,  St. Fagans, Cardiff  Castle,  Dyffryn House and Roath Park. I had 4 hours English Lessons per day. Lessons were very good, I really enjoyed it, because time passed very quickly, it was very interesting. Every day we watched TV programs. I think, that my English is improving now. I feel that I speak English better.

I enjoyed my time in Cardiff with Sophie’s family.

Hi. I am Natalia. I am from Russia. This is my first visit to England. I lived in Hastings. Family in which I lived kind, cheerful, friendly. Every day I had different activity such as tennis, zumba, kickboxing, cinema. Went to different cities: London, Brighton, Battle, Bexhill, Rye, Ashford, try local food, cream tea, English Breakfast, fish and chips. I have improved my English and spend cool early summer!!!

Course in Bristol

I am Laure from France.  I am 20 years old.  I stayed in Bristol for 3 weeks with Heather and her family.

Before I arrived, I was stressed but Heather was very nice with me.

Every morning I went to my English lesson.  All lessons were different.  I read, wrote, watched videos, spoke and at the end I sometimes played Scrabble.

In the afternoons, I went to different areas in Bristol.  For example, I went to the SS Great Britain.  It’s a big ship and very interesting.  I am a girl and I love shopping so Heather took me shopping in Bristol and Bath.  I also visited Berkeley Castle.  It’s a good castle with wonderful butterfly garden.  It’s lovely.

My family was very nice with me.  They went to a pub restaurant for a family birthday and took me with them.  It was a good time for me.

I watched tennis with Chris (Heather’s husband) some afternoons on tv or read magazines in my room.  I also learnt some new recipes and made English apple and cinnamon cake.

My level in English has improved.  It’s very good.  I spent a very good trip in Bristol.

Would you like to do an interesting English course in a beautiful  city living in the family’s house? I recommend you book a course with this company and to ask for Kath, because she is very friendly and is a very good cook! The lessons are entertaining, she is very willing to do information and to offer a beautiful trip, her husband Huw is very friendly and he speaks with me also my English it’s not very good!!  I say to Kath and Huw thank you very much for making me feel at home.

My first time in the UK

Hello.

My name is SAKURAKO. I’m Japanese.  I stayed 3 weeks in St Albans with KATE and PETER.

I visited London, Whipsnade Zoo, Jazz concert, opera, etc.

Peter taught me about the history of St Albans.  Peter is a walking dictionary!!!

I went to Cambridge. I was surprised at the Mathematical Bridge. Because it was first built without bolts or nuts!! it’s just wood. In the library, I saw Newton’s hairs, his note, etc.

I visited Harry Potter Studio with Kate. It was beautiful and amazing!!! I tried butter beer. But it was too sweet for me. I stayed there about 5 hours!!!

Every Wednesday, we went to a concert to listen to different music.

After the concert, we went to a pub to speak with Kate’s friends.

They are very kind and friendly!!!

I had good fun to stay in Kate’s house!!

My conversation progressed more than I hoped !!
