Joelle hat die gesamte Reise sehr gut gefallen. Die Schule und die anschließenden Ausflüge wurden altersgerecht organisiert. Die Betreuer standen ihr in einer schweren Zeit bei dem Wechsel der Gastfamilie zur Seite.

Host family
Students are accommodated with a host family and in this way benefit from special supervision, offered by local residents. This accommodation option allows you to discover the English lifestyle and to put into practice what you've learned during the day in class at home. Depending on availability, the bedrooms may be shared by students of different nationalities. Carefully selected by our partner school, the families offer breakfast, a packed lunch and a hot evening meal. Host families live up to 40 minutes away on foot or by public transport.

Please note that this type of accommodation is best suited for independent students who will be able to arrive to school on their own using public transport.

In accordance with British law, students ages 16 and 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 allow GBP 19 per week for public transport costs.

Each week, our partner school proposes an activities programme to you which includes games and sports. On the Monday following your arrival, a visit of the town and its surroundings is scheduled in order to allow you to discover this magnificent region of England. During the week, our partner school will invite you to visit the famous Kents Cavern or to go for a boat trip in order to discover the coastal town of Brixham. The discovery of Paignton Zoo or outings to water parks and leisure centres are also planned. You will spend the evenings with your host family, providing you with a great opportunity to get to know about and discover English life.
