Viele verschiedene Nationalitäten waren vor Ort, jedoch immer sehr viele Personen aus der gleichen Nation. Auch viele Schweizer vor Ort. Durchschnittsalter, Nationalitäten der Studierenden in der Gruppe und Anzahl der Teilnehmenden pro Klasse nicht ganz bestimmbar, da immer dies immer variiert hat. Unterkunft war super. Genial dass ein Gemeinschaftsraum, ein Kinoraum, ein Lernraum, eine Rezeption mit einer Polstergruppe und eine Gemeinschaftsküche vorhanden ist um sich dort zu treffen / lernen / kochen / Filme und Serien schauen. Ebenfalls toll ist dass die Rezeption 24 Stunden am Tag besetzt ist und immer jemand da ist für den Notfall. Die Zimmer sind gross und modern eingerichtet, absolut genug Platz vorhanden. Ein grosser Vorteil ist, dass das Bad im eigenen Zimmer vorhanden ist und einem selber gehört. Unterkunft ist ebenfalls sehr Nahe am Zentrum, Einkaufsladen in der Nähe vorhanden sowie Ausgangsviertel ganz in der Nähe. Küche soweit gut eingerichtet, falls etwas fehlen sollte, kann man ganz unkompliziert bei der Rezeption nachfragen. Die Schule bietet viele verschiedene Ausflüge (meist Samstags) und Aktivitäten (meist während der Woche) an. Ausflüge sind sehr zu empfehlen, da manche Orte schwerer zu erreichen sind als andere. Aktivitäten ebenfalls zu empfehlen. Schule gibt auch Auskunft über andere Orte. Dinge die man besuchen / machen kann. Ausflüge und Aktivitäten wiederholen sich immer wieder, wenn man also einmal nicht teilnehmen konnte ist die Chance gross erneut die Möglichkeit zu erhalten sich anzumelden. Gutes Preis-Leistungs Verhältnis.

Do you think you've made progress?
« Ja, ich habe Fortschritte erzielt. Grundsätzlich bin ich eine Person, die für ein Fach lernen muss. Ich sehe es jedoch als grossen Vorteil, wenn man sich längere Zeit im Land der lernenden Sprache aufhält, da man von dieser Umgeben ist und gar keine andere Möglichkeit hat. Wir waren viel mit Schweizer unterwegs, in meinem Fall hat es jedoch trotzdem positiv geendet, da wir auch mit anderen Leuten zusammen waren und wie gesagt, man ist umgeben von der Sprache. Ich denke jedoch, dass dies immer auf das Level darauf ankommt. Mir hat ausserdem sehr geholfen dass ich mir Umgangssprache - z.B gesprochen von meinen Lehrern oder dem Staff - gemerkt habe. So hat man Ausdrücke, die man evtl. in der Schule nicht einfach so lernen würde. »
School highlights
« Man hatte immer das Gefühl, gut aufgehoben zu sein und wenn man eine Frage oder Problem hatte, hat die Schule sich Zeit für einen genommen. Aktivitäten und Ausflüge sind sehr abwechslungsreich und für jeden sollte was dabei sein. »
Top tips
« Am ersten Schultag auf keinen Fall zu spät sein, gut aufpassen was sie dann erklären. Auch bei Aktivitäten oder Ausflügen nie zu spät sein oder sich ansonsten melden, damit möglichst pünktlich losgelegt werden kann. Wichtig ist auch, dass man versucht, gleich zu Beginn auf Leute zuzugehen obwohl das auch sehr schwierig sein kann. So stellt man sicher, dass man den Anschluss nicht verpasst. Wecome-Party an jedem Montag sind eine gute Möglichkeit, viele Leute kennenzulernen, da auch Studenten anwesend sind, die schon länger an der Schule sind. »

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.

Host family
All families selected by the school live around 15-25 minutes away from the language school building and offer you accommodation in a single room with half-board. This is perhaps the best way to make the most out of your stay as you will be completely immersed in the English culture and language.

Newcastle 1 residence
In the heart of Newcastle, a 5-minute walk from the language school, this residence offers two types of accommodation: single rooms with private bathrooms in a shared apartment or private studios with a bathroom and kitchenette. The first option is ideal if you like sharing common areas – like the kitchen, the living room and the dining room – with other international residents. If you prefer keeping some independence, the second option is probably what you need. Free Wi-Fi, Sky TV, a laundry room, a gym, a study room and a garden are all at your disposal.

You can visit, for example, Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland, York, a beautiful example of a medieval town, Dunstanburgh and its 13th century castle, Alnwick castle the location of Hogwarts in the first Harry Potter movies, Bamburgh castle and Holy Island with their Viking connections or Durham and its cathedral, built by the Normans. For nature-lovers, The Lake District is a must-see. Some go as far as saying that it is one of Europe’s most magnificent regions. At the very least, it is the most famous national park in England.
