Reviews from past students

          I've been twice to the same family (Pickett family) to improve my English. The family is very cool, you feel at home straight away. I have had four hours of lessons a day. I think that four hours a day's great because you learn a lot, but it isn't too much. I have improved my accent, my vocabulary. Now I feel more confident with my English. In the afternoon, after the lessons we had lots of activities. I went segwaying, shopping, swimming and I saw the airshow of Bournemouth and lots of other things. I really enjoyed this trip.

         After just a few sessions so far my son feels he's making some progress. He says he has a better understanding of one of his GCSE English literature set texts already. He feels at ease during his sessions. Full use is made of the time available and homework is set and a plan agreed for each next session, taking into consideration areas that he would like help with as well. Thank you Dot for your help so far!

           Really enjoyed my experience in that lovely house. I still remember how our teacher helped us to improve our bad English while we couldn't stop laughing!

            I lived with the Pickett family for 5 weeks in Bournemouth and was very happy. I played tennis with Dave every week. I learned the rules and to serve. I like tennis. I also like basketball and swimming. I swam in the sea. It was cold! We played crazy golf near the beach. The food was good. Bacon and eggs on Saturday! Dave's roast potatoes on Sunday are very good! I helped him with the bbq. We had Chinese food.

           I can't think of something to be improved. Dave's methods are great. The most useful thing to me was spending lots of hours with my teacher so I could learn lots of new vocabulary and improve my speaking.

Dear Dot and Dave,

Thank you for welcoming us these two weeks in your home. I had a great time, in addition to the food, which was delicious. Thank you so much for the trips we have done together, I had a great time. Thank you so much, ***
