"Ideal stay, very well-organised. A very pleasant setting: an old house in a small town in Kent. Warm welcome, great comfort, family atmosphere, perfect integration. I was treated like a member of the family, Jane and Humphry Evatt took great care of me, and the cooking was excellent too. I was totally integrated into their social life: friends’ visits, family gatherings, cultural outings, walks... Humphry is an exceptional man, with multiple talents along with a natural aptitude to teach: a musician (great cello player: we played together and I could practise the piano daily, as I wanted to) and a cook (we exchanged our recipes and cooked together). Humphry’s teaching didn’t focus on the academic stuff, it was very dynamic and entirely adapted to my personality: the various aspects of the language (grammar, pronunciation, vocabulary, idiomatic expressions) were covered in varied ways, which didn’t leave room for boredom. The exercises he offered were also very varied: translation of newspaper articles from French into English, critical commentary in English, listening exercises, presentations to prepare... Thanks to this, I made great progress. I realised it at the end of my stay when I saw how easily I could take part in conversations. I achieved all of the objectives I had set for myself. Many thanks for allowing me to have such an exceptional stay."
