C’etait Très bien, après les magasins fermés vraiment très tôt. Et les transports en commun étaient étonnamment pas propres. Mais sinon, j’ai eu qu’une seule semaine de pluie, plein de soleil, la plage était magnifique. Rien à redire tout était parfait

Eastbourne est une très belle ville avec pas mal de sites à voir (Eastbourne Pier, Seven sisters, beachy head...). De plus, j'étais présente lorsqu'il y a eu le Eastbourne Airshow et c'était un super événement. Petite école sympathique qui organise des soirées et de nombreuses activités. Super cours avec des profs très à l'écoute. Très bonne ambiance dans la classe et également dans l'école en général. Nombreuses activités de différents types.

Loriane Germanier
 St Giles InternationalEastbourne
Duration: 5 weeks

Loriane is 18. After she finishes high school, she will study social work for 3 years.  English will be important in her studies.  She studied English 3 years ago and came to St Giles Eastbourne for 5 weeks to improve her English.She thinks Eastbourne and St Giles are beautiful and quiet, and the weather has been good.Her starting level was elementary and she is now studying in a class at pre-intermediate level, and Loriane is pleased with her progress – in particular she feels her grammar and her speaking have improved.On a typical day, Loriane gets up, walks to school (her journey takes her 20 minutes).  She has 4 lessons each morning, has lunch, and then studies for two further lessons in the afternoon.  After school, Loriane goes to the beach (which is 2 minutes from the school) or goes into town with her friends.  She has met many new people of different nationalities.She likes her host family, she thinks they are funny and very nice.She thinks St Giles Eastbourne is very beautiful and the teachers are very good.  Overall, it has been a very good experience for her.

 St Giles International, Eastbourne
Duration: 16 weeks

I had never studied English before; I started the course with an elementary level and finished it with an upper intermediate level. I was really satisfied with the progress I made. The teaching methods are very effective! Eastbourne is a really nice town. The school was well situated, close to the sea and the town centre; it had great facilities and a cafeteria offering good, cheap food. I loved my host family, they cooked very well, we talked a lot and they were there for me when I needed them. I took part in many excursions organised by the school: I went to Oxford, Greenwich, Bath & Stonehenge. These outings were a good way of discovering England. I recommend Eastbourne to everyone!

I remember the day I left Eastbourne (England) very vividly: it was on Saturday 14th August and it seemed unreal to me, I could not believe the six weeks were already over. I had to give up all of the habits I had developed during my stay from one moment to the next. I could not believe that I would not wake up in this town anymore, this town where, thanks to the St Giles International school, I met my friends every morning, each of them from a different country, with a different language, culture and pronunciation of English. I could not get used to the idea that after 42 wonderful days, I was leaving this life behind me.

Before you travel to an unknown place, you always have expectations; different ways of looking at things, and you end up imagining things that you would like to see when you arrive. Nevertheless, I would never have imagined that this 6-week experience could bring so much to my life. I could fill thousands of pages with memories, adventures, and anecdotes… I could spend my whole life telling people how this trip changed my life – but even so, they would not understand, as there are things you just can’t express with words.

It is true that we all experience things in our own way, but when you communicate and express what you think through a language that is not your mother tongue, your perception of things changes. As far as I am concerned, that’s how I communicated with a Swiss girl and I remember our conversations as well as I would if we had spoken in Spanish together. We could talk about any topic for hours (in English of course) and we could understand each other perfectly. It was a very special relationship that I will never forget; neither will I forget the bonds that formed in our large group of friends. But this is not all, I still haven’t talked about a very important part of my stay: the family, this other affective link that guides and supports you at any time during your stay. Sue and Adrian were wonderful hosts! Welcoming, friendly, protective…

The separation, this painful moment that was bound to happen, was difficult, but the stay was worth it and I can assure you that I would not have changed anything to it for all the money in the world.

The summer 2010 brought many new things into my life, there is no doubt about it, and the best aspects of this trip were that I could grow as a person and meet a new family and establish genuine friendships with people who, while being far away, remain close to me. A real gift.

The only thing that cheers me up right now is to know that in a few months, this year, I will embark on the same adventure again.

Thank you to everyone who gave me the opportunity to achieve this dream.

Ana Marín Faraldos.

Host family
Most of the families recruited by the school have been welcoming students for years and are aware of their needs. They generally live around 20-40 minutes’ walk from the school and offer single rooms with breakfast or half-board. During the high season, students under 18 years may be placed in a twin room with another student of a different native language but of the same age. For students travelling together, there is also the possibility of staying in a double room, for an attractive price. Contact us for further information.

Thompson Homes residence (available in July and August)
Located a minute’s walk from the school, this high-quality residence features stylish single bedrooms with private bathrooms. You’ll share the living room and fully equipped kitchen with the other students, and will receive a “welcome pack”, which includes tea, coffee and other breakfast items. Wi-Fi is free, bed linen and towels are provided, and you’ll find a free washing machine in the kitchen. A cleaning service is available at an extra cost. The city centre is very close by and awaits you with its bars, restaurants and shops!

Hotels, guesthouse
For more independence, these two possibilities are available depending on your budget. Additional information and prices on request.

The school organises trips to London to attend the famous musicals such as Phantom of the Opera and The Lion King. Or perhaps you would prefer to spend the weekend in Oxford, Cambridge or Brighton with your new friends? Or to go away camping? Enjoy a round of golf? Whatever your desires, Eastbourne and its surrounds will certainly not leave you bored! Although if you want a change of scenery, Brighton is only 30-40 minutes away by train, making it easy to go to for the day or for a night out.
