Our students' experiences

junior culture and conversation

MARIA KOSLOVA

JUNIOR CULTURE AND CONVERSATION
TEACHER -LISA CHAPMAN – EASTBOURNE
AUGUST 2016
RUSSIA

I will recommend this organisation to other students because it was very funny and cool holidays! My English improved a lot and now it is easier to talk to English people and understand them. Now it’s easier to speak English I can think about something and not wait five minutes before saying it. I really enjoyed walks along the seafront, London Eye,Go Ape, fireworks and Airborne show. It was a very nice time with Lisa and her family!

The best way to learn English with a teacher.Stuart and Sonja have been great hosts.I think it was a good idea to divide the month into two stays of two weeks each because it is more enriching to know different places and different families.I think I have reached level now which is sufficient to be able to advance on my own.                                              https://www.homestayenglish.uk.com/homestay-teachers-in-sussex/

I think they are very good people and Lee is a very good teacher but if I have more time it will be better to learn more English. I will return again in two weeks.
