J'ai vraiment passé de bons moments avec la famille Offler. Lauren m'a beaucoup plus, toujours de bonne humeur, aidante et disponible. La maison est très propre, une femme de ménage passe une fois par semaine et il y a également la possibilité de cuisiner. Ces filles sont adorable et son mari a un humour très british.J'ai eu un réelle coup de cœur!J'ai quitté cette famille avec beaucoup d'émotion. Je recommande la recommande à 100 % L'école Kaplan propose des activités tous les jours et des excisions les weekend. Malheureusement lorsque vous avec payé et que vous n'alliez pas, pas de remboursement possible.Par exemple, je suis partie à Jurasic cost, le guide nous a informé qu'il allait faire chaud, prévoyez de l'eau ou porté une casquette etc... Je trouve très bien qu'on nous informe et fasse de la prévention.

Ich hätte mir keine bessere Gastfamilie vorstellen können. Ich fühlte mich wie zuhause! Es war für für mich, trotz den nicht so grossen Fortschritten, eine sehr interessante Zeit mit bleibenden, vorwiegend positiven Erinnerungen ! Ich empfehle allen, einen Sprachaufenthalt zu machen.

« Die meisten Angestellten waren sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Die Grösse der Schule; allerdings war die Klassengrösse mit 15 zu gross für mich. Der Nationalitätenmix war optimal. »

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…
