La scuola era molto ben fornita. Le aule ampie e luminose con una stanza dotata di computer, un bar con tavoli e sedie e un bel cortile. Tanti ragazzi di tantissime nazionalità differenti. Gli insegnanti gentili e simpatici sempre disposti ad aiutarti. Un bel clima in classe dove tutti fanno parte delle lezioni. Penso che sia molto utile alloggiare in una famiglia ospitante perchè ti permette di capire un po' anche la vita nel paese. La mia famiglia mi ha fatto sentire come a casa. Casa molto grande e carina. Ringrazio tutte le persone che mi hanno fatto apprezzare la scuola e il paese.

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

Please note:

This type of accommodation is best suited to independent students who will be able to get to the school on their own using public transport.

In accordance with the laws in force in Britain, students aged 16 or 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 set aside GBP 18 per week for public transport.

The activities programme included in your stay offers you a daily dose of sports, games and excursions in the surrounding areas. On the first Monday, a visit to Torbay will allow you to familiarise yourself with the town and discover one of the most beautiful regions of England! During the week, the school organises activities like a boat trip to the neighbouring coastal town of Brixham, a visit to the famous Kents Cavern or to Paignton Zoo, the third largest zoo in England. Outings to leisure centres or to water parks are also on the programme. In addition to these daily activities, there are also fun evening activities like bubble football or disco nights! Saturdays are reserved for longer excursions, to places like Exeter, Plymouth or the Dartmoor National Park which is without a doubt, one of the most beautiful regions of England.
