Newcastle is a nice and interesting little city. Is perfect for nightlife, with a lot of pubs and clubs, and shopping, with shopping centers and the center city. International House in Newcastle is almost perfect! Everyone was really nice and kind. My teachers were really good and nice. Everyone, though is quite busy, is very kind and nice. My host family was really nice. Jacqueline is a very good cook and a great person to talk. La mia personale esperienza é stata molto positiva e non ho assolutamente niente da lamentarmi ma altri studenti che ho conosciuto si sono lamentati di alcuni professori (che non ho conosciuto) e impiegati per i loro comportamenti.

È stupenda la città poiché non è tanto grande ma allo stesso tempo è piena di cose da fare e visitare. Si perché a mio parere ho imparato molto ed allo stesso tempo ho conosciuto tanta gente. Il mio professore è stato Abs e lo ritengo un ottimo insegnante, grazie a lui ho imparato tanto. Personale sempre disponibile ad ogni tua domanda o dubbio. Consiglio vivamente questa scuola!!!

Testimonials

Inés Mateos Bernabé

It is difficult for me to say in few words what my two-month stay in Newcastle was like. It was a beautiful, unforgettable experience. When I arrived in Newcastle, I didn’t know the city nor what it looked like. I stayed with a family who was hosting another Swiss student, which really helped me at the beginning. The family was very friendly and neither my roommate nor I had any problems with them. They talked with us a lot and we could even attend a family gathering, where we got to know them better. The school was perfect, I enjoyed going to class and I learnt a lot. The teachers and the staff were very friendly. Besides the school offers a well-organised activities’ programme.

But above all, I made friends with many people. I met students from all over the world and I lived experiences that I will stay with me forever. I have kept in touch with some of them. Newcastle is a university town and you’ll see young people everywhere at any time of day. It is a lively city and from there, you can visit many other places in England and Scotland. Another reason why I would recommend Newcastle is that there are many native English speakers there. You can therefore easily practice English because they are all very friendly and helpful with everyone. If you are interested in football, you can attend memorable matches and meet English supporters. If you want to learn English, go to Newcastle, you will like the city, learn lots of things and meet interesting people.

I spent my three-month language stay in a school called International House. It was an excellent school with excellent teachers and a warm welcome. As for my English, I made lots of progress from the very first day. When I first arrived I would get stuck but you definitely improve by practicing at school, outside school and at home. It was certainly worth it as I was level A2 when I arrived and B2 when I finished, you can even take exams but you need to check the exact dates. It was a very, very good experience and what’s great about learning a language in the country is that you have to speak English, you have no choice but to speak English, and that’s how you improve.

The IH school is excellent. There is a great atmosphere and people are very friendly. Besides, teachers are nice, my class was good and the other students exceptional. It was a pleasure to go to school! My host family was nice to me. I could play with the son and it was a good way of improving my English. Newcastle is a big city. You can find everything in the town centre and it is easy to visit the city with the subway or on foot. There are also many pubs. If you are looking for a restaurant: there are all located in the town centre. You can find anything you want: Italian, Chinese, etc… And to finish with, the free excursion to Edinburg was great : the weather was nice, it is a beautiful city and there is a lot to visit.

The school organises a varied program of activities all year round, including cultural outings and excursions. You can visit, for example, Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland, York, a beautiful example of a medieval town, Dunstanburgh and its 13th century castle, or Durham and its cathedral, built by the Normans.
