“Live and Learn” courses: Why study English in the teacher’s home?
All our students who come to us have goals they want to achieve. We ensure that everything you do is working towards achieving your goals. One to one is a more intensive environment to learn so progress will be faster.
The big advantage of a “Live and Learn” English course is that you are immersed in the language and culture. In addition to your stimulating one to one classes and your self-study time there are many opportunities to practise your language. Make the most of being in an English speaking environment by spending time with your host family in the daily life and on enjoyable activities outside class that will really help your English improve.
Be selfish. Your speed, your needs, your level
If you are motivated to learn English, but don’t have much time then one to one is your solution. Group classes can be good, but they may not be quite focused on your precise needs. If you only have two weeks, why not have a course which is exactly what you want.
Because you make faster progress in a full immersion environment of a “Live and Learn” one to one course, you can come for a shorter period of time. This will save you time and money! Our classes are also a great value for money – lessons are 60 minutes long.
For many of our clients they are looking for something a bit different, a bit personalised. We offer classes every week of the year, even over Christmas and New Year.

All our families have been personally vetted and conform to the British Council regulations for home stays. Our homes are more than just clean, neat and comfortable. The key to the programme is hospitality and making the student feel at home. You will have a comfortable, single study bedroom. Bed linen is changed weekly and laundered by the family. There are extra blankets available for cold weather. 99% of our host tutors have broadband internet connection. If you would like a private bathroom please request this when enrolling.
