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.
