"I had an amazing experience. This is a great way of learning English."
Thomas came to study General English for 3 weeks, 20 hours per week. He's from Switzerland and he stayed with Pauline, just outside Brighton.
Here's what he said about his 1:1 English language home tuition course:
"My English teacher in Switzerland recommended Acorn English Homestay to me and so I contacted Raymond. When I arrived, my homestay teacher and her family were very welcoming and helpful.
"At first I was worried about not understanding everything and I broke out in a sweat!! However the lessons were so interesting and varied that the 4 hours of tuition quickly passed.
"We had a variety of grammar, conversation, reading and listening lessons and inbetween times we laughed about different things. I will never forgot the trip to Arundel Castle, the cream tea at her Aunt Kathleen’s house, going out for a traditional roast dinner and The Brighton Marathon.
"I had an amazing experience and the meals were delicious! I would recommend staying with a family to all students as this is a great way of learning English.
"I am going to stay in touch with my teacher Pauline and I hope to see her and her family again, either in England or maybe in Switzerland!"
