After having had this experience, I can say that homestay learning is the best way to learn a language for a least 3 reasons.


First of all, because the one-to-one lessons are adapted to your needs and you can progress quickly, secondly because you have the opportunity to speak English all day with members of the family, and furthermore, you can immerse yourself into English traditions and habits!


I had a great time during my three weeks in Brighton; my teachers were excellent and they made me feel welcome. Moreover, Brighton is a beautiful place, a really lively city with lots of things to do.


I needed to improve my English and now I really feel more confident.


Yes, I know I still have a lot to learn. that's why I'd like to come back next year.

It was absolutely great that, from the beginning, I was treated like a family member!


Even if we did not have a lesson, my teacher corrected my English talking and explained me a lot.


One could notice that she was really interested in teaching me and she really wanted me to make progress.


I recommended Acorn English Homestay already to a lot of my friends who want to improve their English.


In my opinion there is no better way to learn English than to choose the “homestay method”  and Acorn English Homestay cares about their students in a very personal way!

It’s great to go to England to learn English because you learn a lot.


You talk to the family every day, you meet people and you get the chance to speak a lot of English.


It was nice to see so many English buildings too such as Windsor Castle, The Royal Pavilion in Brighton and Buckingham Palace in London.


You get the chance to work with the teacher on your own and to choose topics which you are interested - now I can talk much more easily about English football!

My English teacher 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 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 and I hope to see her again, in England or maybe in Switzerland!

We were for two weeks near by Brighton in a English family to learn English. We lived in a English small house by us teacher Nikki and her husband and her Babby.


At beginning it was very strange. The house, the family, the new language and the country, but after two weeks we learned lots of new things.


In the morning we had always school for three hours. Nikki is a very good English teacher, for us the best. Always we made lots of exercise and games. 


One day we cooked for Nikki a Swiss meal and another day she cooked for us a English meal. It was very good.


Nikki is very nice and lovely.We think it is the best way to learn English.



Andrea, Italy

English for Teachers

A good knowledge of the English language is an indispensible tool for people working in the fields of education or research. For this reason, I decided it was time to improve my English. 


The course was very helpful as I learned a lot more about how English sounds are pronounced.  I interacted with my teacher and her family in English and I have begun to feel more familiar with the sounds of spoken English that were previously unknown to me.


I also enjoyed listening to English television and discussing news items.  I will recommend Acorn English Homestay to my colleagues.
