Our past students have found that a short intensive exam preparation course can make a big difference to their confidence and, most importantly, to their exam results.

Student Testimonials:
“The atmosphere of my home stay business training course was very warm and friendly, but also very professional thanks to my two teachers and my lovely host family.

After lessons I spent the evening with my hosts and this was a time when I could relax and learn to make conversation without stress.

In the lessons, we worked specifically on a presentation I had to make to my IT team.

The presentation was a great success and I always present to colleagues in English now."

- Armelle, IT co-ordinator for a chain of supermarkets in France

"I wanted to improve my English, but aimed toward the world of politics and business. And that's exactly what I had. Now I have a very valuable basis that I must not waste, and now I'm really motivated to keep improving my English in Spain. 

The learning method is perfect. I really enjoyed the classes combined with real life. Has the theory and practice every day.

If we also take into account the effect that teachers have shown me and all people who have been there for me, the experience is unforgettable."

- Manuel, a civil engineer and company owner from Barcelona

"I really appreciated the patience of the teachers, how they find the difficulties of the student and win his trust. I like two teachers with different personalities and methods.

I appreciate the possibilities of integrate conversations and give opinions; answers; participation of the life; acquire automatism and facilities to respond; find a reply quickly; to be comfortable in the exchange and to make a company presentation for Saudi with the help of my teachers Celia and Gail.

The host families were top-level. Sam’s family helped me to understand the life in another country - and discover the New Forest.

Other moments: the good integration in local life with differences at the preconceived ideas. At first I did not want to move from Sam’s house, but the experience with David was good in a different way.

He invited me to join friends for dinner in Bournemouth and I was pleased to understand a conversation with four people talking quickly."

- Gilbert Kervenez, works for a French company that supplies water purification processes to plants all over the world
