« Gracias a este programa, he podido conocer a gente de otras nacionalidades (aunque básicamente la mayoría de los estudiantes eran alemanes) y he podido practicar un poco mi inglés, aunque dos semanas no han sido suficientes para mejorar mi nivel. »

« Los monitores y el personal de la escuela estaban dispuestos a ayudar en todo momento, y hasta podías llamar a la madrugada si tenias algún problema. La organización de la escuela fue muy buena y eficaz. »

Många långa bussförseningar till fritidsaktiviteter. Många rökare trots att de var 15-16 år. Borde inte finnas rökområde på skolan.Säker och liten stad - lätt att hitta och gå överallt. Trevligt land med bra samhälle men bussar och bilar kör som dårar på småvägarna i Devon. Mkt gästvänlig familj. Varmt mottagande. Väldigt god mat men köpte till bröd och lite saker som jag ville ha men när hon såg vad jag hade köpt sade hon att hon kunde köpa detta. Jag är idrottare och äter väldigt mkt men fick tillräckligt med mat. Amanda ringde mig igår och bjöd mig tillbaka och sade att hon gör en kyckling åt mig varje dag. Fick en liten chock då jag kom in då huset första gången då det är pyttelitet och köket mindre än ett pentry och omgivningen inget vidare men familjens ambition övervägde allt vad gäller boendet. Blev sjuk under min vistelse och Amanda tog väl hand om mig. Gick ut mkt med deras hund, Darcy.

Host family
Students stay with a host family and benefit in this way from individual supervision, offered by the local residents. This accommodation option allows you to discover the English lifestyle and to put into practice at home what you have learned in class during the day. Depending on availability, the bedrooms are shared by students of different nationalities. Carefully selected by our partner school, the families offer breakfast, a midday meal to take with you to school and a hot meal in the evening.

Please note:

This type of accommodation is best suited to independent students who will be able to get to the school on their own using public transport.

In accordance with the laws in force in Britain, students aged 16 or under cannot stay more than 27 nights with a host family unless the family is accredited. Contact us to check the availability of accredited host families before booking a course of 4 weeks or more.

It is important to set aside GBP 18 per week for public transport.

The activities programme included in your stay offers you a daily dose of sports, games and excursions in the surrounding areas. On the first Monday, a visit to Torbay will allow you to familiarise yourself with the town and to discover one of the most beautiful regions of England. During the week, the school organises, for example, a boat trip to visit the neighbouring coastal town of Brixham, a visit to the famous Kents Cavern, or to Paignton Zoo, the third largest zoo in England. Outings to leisure centres or to water parks are also on the programme. In addition to these daily activities, special evening activities are proposed with entertainment like karaoke or cinema. Saturdays are reserved for more significant excursions, to places like Exeter, Plymouth or the Dartmoor National Park...without any doubt, one of the most beautiful regions of England.
