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!
