Ich war sehr zufrieden mit meinem Sprachaufenthalt. Meine Gastfamilie war sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Immer wurde ich unterstützt und bei Fragen standen sie mir mit Rat und Tat zur Seite. Auch die Schule war super. Jedes Wochenende fanden verschiedene Trips statt, in andere Städte oder auch Aktivitäten in der näheren Umgebung. Auch unter der Wochen gab es verschiedene kleinere Aktivitäten, welche man besuchen konnte.

Testimonials

Marie-Claude Oreiller
Marie-Claude Oreiller

I wanted to do a language study trip in England and ESL offered me to take a language course at the Kaplan school in Bath. It was a very good choice. In Bath, you can visit the thermal baths, the cathedral, relax in Victoria park and meet new people in the numerous pubs: you never get bored! I went there several times and attended 8 weeks of classes as a whole. The best method for learning is to work in groups or pairs as it makes for good interaction among students, which allows you to speak. I am now starting to think in English and my listening skills are getting better everyday. I liked the friendly atmosphere at the school a lot. My host family gave me a great welcome during my first stay. I’ve kept in touch with them and we are now friends. Every time I go back to Bath, I stay at their place.

Kaplan International Colleges, Bath
Duration: 12 weeks

I spent three months in Bath to study at the Kaplan International Colleges, which offer many activities and tours, allowing me to visit England a bit and to discover the customs of the country – especially thanks to my host family, who was very considerate towards me. The English classes, which were well managed by the school and the teachers, allowed me to go from the intermediate level to the advanced level within 3 months. I really liked the city of Bath, which is quiet and safe and offers many activities and is really beautiful thanks to its well-preserved architecture. In a nutshell, it was a great stay, rich in discoveries and encounters. It’s a pity it has to end…
