Our students' experiences


JULY 2017

Lovely hosts cute little dog . George quickly adapted to what we requested and needed to improve our English. He offered also nice ideas I can use in my classic teaching . We really enjoyed our stay, the conversations and the wonderful food . Nielsten is rural and beautiful but go just 30 minutes by train, and you can enjoy the hustle and bustle of the big city and get the best of both worlds. We wouldn't mind to return someday !



This homestay was the first in my life and it was a wonderful experience for me. Excursions were good and the teacher was determined to teach me. I will never forget this trip , it was amazing !



My stay lasted only one week but I’ve made huge improvement in comprehension and vocabulary. I feel more confident about speaking now. Moreover, I know which areas of grammar I must study. My host Amanda understood perfectly what I was looking for. She suggested me a lot of interesting places to visit and we did great excursions together.I’ve learned so much about English culture I really enjoyed my stay.
