Living Learning English and Acorn


Acorn English Homestay is operated by Living Learning English, since 2021.


We are an English language homestay organisation specialising in individual one-to-one and two-to-one language teaching in the teacher's home. Our customers range from school or university students needing English for their studies, to business executives who need to learn English rapidly for their work.


Living with their teacher enables our clients to enjoy a unique experience of English culture, customs and way of life which they find invaluable. Our total immersion approach is what distinguishes Living Learning English from ordinary language schools.


Living Learning English has been in existence since 1995, and have provided courses for a wide range of students from ages 10 to 70, school students to prestigious business clients at senior management and executive level.


Living Learning English is owned and operated by Kate Hargreaves BSc (Hons), PGCE who has over 25 years of experience teaching English as a Foreign Language and managing language programmes overseas, in private language schools, state colleges, independent boarding schools and for Living Learning English.

Founded and run by professional English teachers

Acorn English Homestay was founded in 2011 by two professional English teachers with a wealth of EFL teaching experience between them. In addition to classroom experience, they worked as homestay tutors for a number of years, welcoming and teaching many students in their own home. They understood perfectly what makes a great homestay experience. 


The founders very personal approach meant that Acorn English Homestay delivered - and continues to deliver - exceptionally high quality courses to hundreds of satisfied students.


The care and attention, professionalism and personal touch upon which Acorn English Homestay was founded continues under the new owner.
