Brighton ist eine vielseitige Studentenstadt am Meer, in der es viele Festivals gibt. Die vielen Pubs mit Livemusik sind super! Auch die hügelige Landschaft ist wunderschön, und viele Städte sind gut mit dem Zug erreichbar. Engländer sind sehr organisierte Menschen. Die Aktivitäten-Angebote der Schule sind supertoll, egal ob mitten in der Woche oder an Wochenenden. Die Cafeteria hat ein gutes Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis. Zudem ist es schön einen Garten zu haben, in dem an das gute Wetter genissen kann. Das Personal ist sehr hilfsbereit, freundlich und engagiert.

Mon séjour à Brighton fut une expérience incroyable : c'est une ville très ouverte, très verte, avec de nombreux endroits pour sortir. A 1h en train de Londres, 30min de Gatwick, c'est idéal pour celles et ceux qui veulent visiter l'Angleterre. L'école est située à 20min à pieds du centre de Brighton, 10min en bus. Elle est très bien équipée, la petite cafétéria au sein de l'école est très pratique. Il y a également un jardin-terrasse, idéal pour les pauses avec le soleil. Comme dans toute école, il y a de bons et de mauvais profs, mais il faut noter que la plupart des teachers de BSC Brighton sont passionnés par leur travail : on progresse rapidement, et sans voir le temps passer. La maison est vraiment très proche de l'école, on peut y rentrer manger le midi. Elle possède également un grand jardin, un barbecue, des tables en extérieur. Elle comporte 12 chambres et 3 salles de bains. Les chambres sont correctes (lit une place) et lumineuses. La cuisine est très grande et plutôt bien équipée (il manque la machine à café). Le seul problème est les salles de bains : aucune pression, eau très calcaire... La maison est nettoyée chaque semaine par une femme de ménage pour les parties communes, mais la propreté des salles de bain dépend essentiellement de la propreté des étudiants dans la maison.

Testimonials

Brighton is a beautiful city, next to the sea and the students are often happy to go out to the nightclubs, cinema, pubs, restaurants or fast food restaurants. One of the first things you should try is swimming in the sea! The school is good because there are different types of accommodation. If you are not sure, you can contact ESL and choose between a student house and a host family. It depends on you, whether you are really independent and like living with a lot of people of different nationalities. There are a lot of different nationalities in the school and you can speak with them only in English.

 BSC, Brighton
Duration: 4 weeks
 

In August I spent four weeks in Brighton to attend the CAE course. Brighton is a very nice city to live in and offers you a lot of different things. You can go clubbing, shopping, swimming, having fun with your new friends or take trips to various places in its surrounding area, for example to Seven Sisters. I chose British Study Centres because only there could I do the CAE course in the four weeks of august. It was absolutely the right decision! The atmosphere in the school is easy going and cosmopolitan, so it isn’t difficult at all to feel at home there, and the garden is a perfect place to spend your breaks in. The teachers did their very best to prepare us for the exam and we had a lot of fun. During the four weeks I stayed in a student house. I liked to live there because it was an interesting and exiting experience to have something to do with different people from various countries.

My stay in Brighton helped me to make a lot to make progress and to express myself in English. My two months of classes were intensive. One or two extra months would probably have been more conclusive at my level. Choosing a host family is a plus to make language as well as cultural progress. I ‘d like to thank ESL for this wonderful experience!

Host family
Living with a host family is an enriching experience from both a social and linguistic point of view. Staying in a single room, you will be provided with half-board and enjoy the benefits of sharing experiences in total immersion with your local host. The families often live in residential areas, around 40 minutes from the school by bus.

Student house (from 18 years)
If you want more independence, a student house is a great option. Staying in a single bedroom, meals will be at your own expense, but the kitchen is at your disposal. The living room and bathroom are shared with the other flatmates. The student houses are between 10 and 20 minutes' walking distance from the school.

Phoenix Hall summer residence (from 18 years) (24.06-01.09.2018)
Located in the centre of Brighton near the iconic pier and 20 minutes from the language school by bus, the Phoenix Hall residence offers excellent value for the money. Staying in a single room fitted with a desk, chair and wardrobe, you will be able to prepare your meals in the modern, fully equipped kitchen together with the other international students. The private bathroom will offer you a certain amount of comfort and welcome privacy. A TV lounge, laundry facilities and Wi-Fi are also available. Each apartment accommodates up to 8 students, so you'll have plenty of chances to meet people!

With a wide range of outings and excursions during the week and at weekends, the school offers a complete social programme that makes it easy to meet people and practice your English. Various sports (including watersports) are available, and the long promenade along the seafront is perfect for jogging, cycling or roller skating. Brighton & Hove is one of the UK’s best cities for shopping, with the Lanes and North Laine being the most popular spots: both are also full of cafés, pubs and restaurants. If it all gets too much, take a break on the beach, have a dip in the sea and enjoy a barbecue in the evening!
