I have just learnt your language for 36 hours with teacher lessons and living during seventeen days with a family in your country, and I’m sure I have learnt more than in five years in my country. At the end of my stay in Cornwall I was dreaming, thinking and talking to myself in English.

Nuria Estape Business student from Spain

“One-to-One is good because I can speak more and learn lots of new words and idioms. It is good because I live in an English family. My teachers in France speak very slowly. My teacher here speaks fast but I can understand her after one week. I am speaking to English people more easily now.”
