Bournemouth is a pleasant city with a nice beach, lots of sports facilities and beautiful gardens. My two-weeks stay was a great experience. I took classes at Kings. This school has a very good reputation and its teaching staff is very professional and friendly. Here I was able to practise my English with native speakers. I find it important to use my English in real-life situations since the language is becoming increasingly important internationally and in interdisciplinary contexts. I stayed with a British host family, something I really recommend. In retrospect, I would even recommend attending a summer school at a younger age, for instance, during one's last high-school year. ESL really helped me along in my decision-making and I gained great confidence in this organization. I had a most unforgettable experience and would not hesitate repeating it!

I did a 3-week intensive course at Kings College in Bournemouth and I am very happy about it. I had lost my fluency in English because I never have the chance to practise, but with this course I got it back!

I have to say that the Beach Residence needs some adjustments (squealing floor)… I am joking! The situation is great, facilities are welcoming and the residence manager is just too funny!
In Bournemouth, I found a place to relax. If you are lucky, you can go to the beach, but there are plenty of other activities to do. I think that 3-5 weeks is the ideal length of a language stay. In Bournemouth, you’ll find a pleasant student atmosphere, nice bars with good beers and food, and cool clubs for party people. The city is well connected to other cities (by bus and by train) and London is only 1h30 away.

English being necessary for my job, I decided to go for a language study trip in the South of England, and more specifically Bournemouth. This cute little town is known for its nice climate and for its high quality school. I chose Bournemouth for it beautiful beaches. Moreover, the locals are very nice and welcoming. My residence was 25 min away from “Kings College” school. Very good school and good teachers. This 6-month trip was a nice experience and I will keep very fond memories of it.

I have had a great experience at Kings Bournemouth. I’m so happy and I always say to myself that I’m so glad I chose this town! I’ve met lots of people and I’ve learnt a lot. I’ve especially improved my speaking skills. It was my first experience in a school like this and I was very anxious on my first day, but all the staff and teachers at Kings were so friendly I felt comfortable very quickly. Bournemouth is a lovely place. There are lots of shops and lots of things to do and there are lots of beautiful places around it. The beach is beautiful and is a good place to spend time with friends. The people are very friendly and helpful too. Bournemouth has good connections with other towns and cities, so I have travelled a lot. I’m always busy here! Whenever I return from travelling, I feel glad to be back in Bournemouth. It really feels like my home. The lessons are interesting and one of my FCE teachers was especially inspiring. The school canteen is very good. It has a lot of variety (hot and cold food) and the prices are good. I chose ESL Montreux because it gave you a wide variety of choice for places to go. When I first went to the office, I wasn’t sure which town to choose, but they were very helpful and gave me a lot of advice and information both about Kings and Bournemouth. They convinced me to choose Bournemouth and as I’ve already said, I’m so glad I did! I’d definitely recommend it!

Hello everyone!

I'm Ruth, a student English at Kings Bournemouth. I've been in Bournemouth for only four months. I've been staying on an intensive course. It's very good for learning English in a short time. In the afternoon, I've been having a communication's class. It's very funny and I can practise my English. As well as learning English, Kings Bournemouth is a brilliant place to meet new people. It's fantastic because I've learnt about different cultures.

Bournemouth is a nice town. In my free time I go with other students to the cafeteria. In the evening, sometimes, we go to some bars. In Bournemouth, my favourite place is the beach, I walk along the promenade, It's very relaxing!

I think at Kings it's a fantastic time to meet people and learn about English culture!.

It was a great choice to come to Kings College in Bournemouth. Thank you so much to the " ESL Language Studies Abroad" that they recommended to me this wonderful city and this beautiful school. The city is homely and there are a lot of students. Every day and every night there are many things to do. There are a lot of pubs, clubs and the school organizes many activities such as visiting London and other great cities. For the first time in my life I can say that I like going to school. I meet new people who come from all over the world, I know new cultures and every day is a new experience.

Teachers are prepared and willing to help you with anything. They are very experienced and they know what are the fears of students. I thought that a month would be enough and after that I wanted to return home but I was wrong. I feel very good here and the time flies by so I decided to extend my stay for up six months. I advise everyone to come here because you'll learn English and it will be a memorable and amazing experience. See you in Bournemouth!!

I chose a Kings course because my agency ESL recommended it and I'm happy with this choice. The Lecturers have taught me in an interesting way and it's easy to understand them. It's so good because the staff and teachers are friendly and there are lots of activities in the Summer. I like the mentality of the people they are very friendly and open. My plan for the future is I'm going to work in an office for Garage Opel. It's a beautiful experience — you can meet a lot of people from around the world. I would advise everyone to do it!

We were not at Bournemouth’s Kings Colleges for music classes but for English classes! It was a very serious school: a studious but nice atmosphere, students from all over the world, it was really rich. As for the Bourne family who welcomed us, they were 100% British: a little plus to improve our conversation skills… And then there was Bournemouth, a garden city by the sea… Anyway, it was a wonderful stay for young students like us!

I spent my stay in the south of England, in a city called Bournemouth. Bournemouth is located directly by the sea and is surrounded by many green parks which invite you to go for nice walks. The climate is not typical of England's weather but is a lot milder and with less rain (in comparison with the rest of the island). I can only furter recommend Bournemouth, as it is was a really great place to stay for me. Thanks ESL.
