My one-to-one language stay at Mr & Mrs Smith’s home in Worthing was very good. The couple is very nice and helpful. From Monday to Friday, in the morning I had a 3-hour lesson (often more than 3 hours) with few breaks, and in the evening I had to do some homework in my bedroom (I requested it!). In the afternoon, Tony and his wife Anne would have me visit the surroundings and keep me busy. They are very nice and they welcomed me into their family life as if I were a real member. Their home is simple but comfortable: I had my own big room (around 15m2) facing the garden, and it was very quiet. Tony and Anne were very careful with the food quality (they like organic products), so I ate very well the whole time; Anne likes to cook for her guests and tries to satisfy everyone’s taste.

In a nutshell, I am very happy about this experience: I improved my English in the best conditions and discovered the surrounding region.

My experience with Stephen was the best thing that's ever happened to me. The classes were very interesting and included different types of vocabulary, grammar, speaking, writing and listening. The classes flew by and I learned a lot. I stayed with the perfect family, with the teacher's two great daughters and son. The food was very good and the service was excellent. They were always checking on me to see if I was missing something. The place was well located because all the towns were close by. For me, I would rate this family ten out of ten!

I chose to go to England for two weeks with the ESL programme because I needed to quickly improve my English and I had very little availability. If you are in the same situation, I strongly recommend you this programme! There are many benefits: we are totally immersed in the English culture and language during our stay and the private lessons allow us to make progress at an astounding speed! Otherwise, the organisation of the classes also allows us to visit the city or the region in which we live, which is really pleasant. Personally, my stay was unforgettable. My host family was very friendly and we talked a lot. They made me discover the area. Thanks to them, I made great progress in English and I discovered many things about England. To sum it up, ESL offers a very comprehensive programme. If I had to do it again, I would without hesitating!

ESL at the teacher's, London
Duration: 2 weeks

I went on a language stay in London as part of the ESL programme. I was entirely satisfied with the programme for various reasons. First of all, as a professional working full time, I have very little availability to take some time off; the ESL programme allowed me to make massive progress in a very short time. Secondly, the possibility to set choice criteria to find the teacher that suited my expectations and the private lessons allowed me to fulfil my specific requirements. And the fact of living at the teacher’s offers many benefits: speaking English 24/7, discovering English habits, being provided with food and accommodation, developing a complicity with the teacher and getting many tips to visit London. The classes took place in the morning, which allowed me to visit London in the afternoon. As a contemporary art lover, I visited many very interesting museums. I also strolled down the streets and did some shopping! London is a city that can be of interest to anybody as it has a lot to offer and traveling around is easy! If I had to do it again I would do it exactly the same way!
