What is the best way to improve your English?

Stay in the home of a qualified English tutor and have 1:1 lessons with them. With an English Homestay, you language skills should improve quickly as you can focus 100% on your personal goals.  You can also absorb the British culture and lifestyle.

This website is for adults who are committed to improving their English.  An English homestay will provide you with a safe and comfortable place to learn.  Your tutor can work on whatever you need, e.g.

  • You may be a student, planning to come and study in the UK, you may want to increase your IELTS level
  • you may want to practice using the vocabulary you need in your professional life.  (Employers you should read this page on how we can help to improve your employees’ English)
  • You may want to come to the UK for an English homestay as a holiday, as well as a learning experience.

You can have 2, 3 or 4 hours of English lessons a day.  There will also be lots of other opportunities to practice your English; for example when you have meals with your tutor and their family, visit interesting places and meet your tutor’s friends.
