Clive est le prof à avoir !!!!!! Une méthode adaptée et des profs passionnés c'était efficace et divertissant ce qui nous permet d'être plus attentif et assidus et d'avoir de meilleurs résultats. Je recommande vivement. Une famille accueillante qui a su me faire partager leur vie. Grandes discussions tous les soirs avec Lisa c'était très bien. Des personnes motivées et chaleureuses des activités variées. C'était super.

St Giles InternationalBrighton
Duration: 24 weeks

My stay was perfect and I intend to return there. I really liked Brighton as it is a city which has a lot of what London has to offer but it is smaller and more practical. This city allowed me to meet many people who I wouldn't have had the opportunity to meet elsewhere and thanks to the school, I was able to get to know students from various backgrounds and cultures. My host family? I had the impression that I was at home!! Also, as they were real Arsenal supporters, I was often able to go to see matches for free in London.

I have good memories of my trip to England, especially of my host family! I was placed in a welcoming, simple, lively and pleasant family that encouraged me to speak. At the school, the atmosphere was really great and I attended high quality courses.
In the school as well as in the city, there was great cultural diversity: the students come from all over the world with the same goal: learning the language. We were often together during activities. As I am writing these few lines to you, I am preparing my second language study trip, still in Brighton, still in the same school.

St Giles International, Brighton
Duration: 4 weeks

Brighton is a cool and open-minded city, where I felt confortable since day 1! In Brighton, you can find amazing pubs and clubs every single day of the week. Also, there are plenty of restaurants and – really – I was never disappointed! Every restaurant I tried was good. My host family was amazing, very open-minded and welcoming! The school was also very good; the teachers were really nice and motivating. Brighton is an extraordinary city, where you can make new friends and do anything you want…

Host family
The school offers different types of host family accommodation. For the standard option, families live 15-45 minutes by bus from the school: you will stay in a single room with half-board. If you wish to benefit from a private bathroom, please request the superior option. The third option, called “suburban”, includes families who live around 45-60 minutes from the school. You’ll have plenty of opportunities to improve you English skills while discovering the British way of life. If you travel with a friend, twin rooms are available.

Using your English in a sporting or social context is a great way to develop the skills you will have acquired in class. It is also a great way to make friends with students from all over the world! This is why our partner school offers students the chance to participate in activities and outings each week, some free or at reduced prices, during the week and on weekends. The program includes sporting activities such as basketball, football or tennis, but also cultural excursions to museums, the theatre or cinema, not to forget the nights out: pub, nightclub or to the Babylon Lounge Club, for example. Weekend trips are also offered: Cambridge, Oxford, Portsmouth and, of course, London.
