I am Imeda, from Georgia. It was my first visit to the UK, it is a great country. I have been at Southbourne School of English for 4 weeks. The school has the best teachers and this school is very good, I will miss all the lovely and friendly people. I hope to return there again. Thanks a lot everybody!!!
Southbourne School of English for me is the best school for learning English language, the first time came to England I was only fourteen years old. It was my auntie’s idea, I was a bit shy, surprised because I couldn’t speak English. When I went back home, I realised that I understood many things. I was glad, and I told her I do want to come back again. From then on I used to come every single summer in July specially. I met a lot of people from all over the world, I spent the greatest time in Bournemouth, I have the best memories with all the staff who are warm, open minded and listening to the students, solving their problems and caring about them.
Honestly, the best way to learn a language is to go to the main country. For me it was an unforgettable experience. Bournemouth is small and easy to get to know, that is the beauty and the secret of this lovely Town.
English is spoken all over the world now, you need it for your studies, your work, travelling and for many other things.
I advice anyone who wants to learn and succeed to fight and reach their goal.
The school was excellent for me! It is my fourth time to come to Southbourne School of English, I have been studying here for two months now and I love it. The course is one of the best I have ever been on before, the classes are excellent and you learn a lot. The teachers and all the staff are so friendly and very helpful.
The location is perfect, you can enjoy all the beautiful places all around and only 10 minutes from the beach, absolutely fantastic. The accommodation as usual is great. My host family was like my real family and I felt at home.
The social programme and activities are very good, I enjoyed most of the trips in the summer arranged by the school. The trips were cheap and very informative.
I really recommend studying at Southbourne School of English, you will meet many people and make many close friends.
Attending lessons at Southbourne School was one of the most rewarding experience I have ever had. I got to know not only things I had never heard of or read before, but I also learnt a lot of cultural tips and everyday language you can’t find in books! Teachers were very helpful and caring and classmates were simply great! I met people from all over the world and I still keep some friends from places I won’t be able to reach in my entire life…Thanks for opening the doors to knowledge and acquaintances. Thanks for letting us be part of your school.
I‘ve had a really good time at this school and enjoyed my time there. As I was working as an Au-Pair in England I was only able to attend morning classes at school but for me this opportunity was perfect as my English has improved extremely and I’ve met loads of people from different countries all over the world.
I have to say that this school is good for every level of English you are able to speak and write, as the teachers can help you with every difficulty you have in learning English. You also get to know different accents of speaking English as for example people from France have a different style of speaking than people from Spain, but over time you can always understand them better.
The school itself is located quite well as you can find shops, restaurants and the sea only within a walk of 10 minutes. It is also near to Bournemouth, where you can do many things and meet new people as in this city there is a university and therefore you can meet many young people. The building of the school is nice; it is not too big and not too small – spot on. All in all it’s quite cosy as you get to know many new people and have absolutely no stress in learning English.
Another positive facility of this school is that there is a library and a language lab where you get the chance to improve your English. School is also offering movie-nights and quiz-nights where you can meet new people and have loads of fun. The weekend trips are good, you can spend time with nice people, speak English and explore beautiful sites of England.
Last but not least it should be said that all the teachers and the staff are very friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this school to everyone!
I was at Southbourne School of English from 3rd – 31st of January 1997. I loved everything about Southbourne School from the first day.
I remember quite a modern school with a really friendly reception staff! Never let us alone and took good care of us.
The classes are interesting and informative, and the teachers are lovely. There are great moments at cafeteria with other students at lunch. You can also borrow books from the school library, definitely many things that make the course nicer, like watching movies or taking part in the quizzes which are a lot of fun. The trips and activities arranged by the school to London and the different cultural cities are an experience not to be missed.
I made lots of fantastic friends at the school! Friends who I have been in contact with for the last 15 years and hopefully will meet again one day!
I lived near the school, in a warm house! My host family was excellent, they were so friendly and patient with me. They gave me all the support I needed, helping and teaching me all the time!
I was on the upper intermediate course with people from many countries. The students were not allowed to speak their language in class, so we spoke English all the time! Great! Fantastic experience! Because I felt that I was learning faster and more. A unique experience!
I would like to say THANKS for the amazing time I had in England, in the school and with the family. I enjoyed every day. I felt really happy! I love Bournemouth, the people, the cafes and pubs where I spent lots of hours with my group.
Thank you very much for a lovely time, I felt at home! I hope I am able to come back again!
I like this School because it is quite modern; every class has heating or air conditioning. You can use internet in the Cafeteria or Wi-Fi, you can also borrow books from the school library – definitely many things that make the course nicer.
I like the variety of courses that you can choose from, I have been learning English in a small a group which is really good.
Studying here has been a good experience, I have met many young people from all over the world and I expect to visit them in their countries.
My host family has been very pleasant and friendly. They have made my stay comfortable in helping me with everything – also living just 5 minutes from the school.
I enjoyed the different activities and social programme during the week, such as watching movies or playing bingo, quizzes and I could visit different cities on the weekends that I didn’t with the school trips.
The reception staff are really friendly and if you don’t know anything about coaches, addresses…you only have to ask them and they will help you.
Everybody from the school is really welcoming when I arrived 7 months ago, I was a little scared because I couldn’t speak English but finally all the teachers make you feel confident and comfortable. Making friends with people from the whole world is the most rewarding experience of my life.
I chose Bournemouth because I wanted to live near the sea and I was really lucky. The school is 10 minutes from the beach. Furthermore there is everything close to the school (bank, supermarket, pubs)
The courses are really interesting, each teacher adapts his/her behavior to all the levels. We spend time studying grammar but also have good time to play and learning at the same time.
Studying at Southbourne School of English is a great opportunity. The location is perfect and there is everything close to the school. If you are interested in learning English, you’ll learn quickly and will be impressed with your improvement.
I can’t find another word: PERFECT! – Very clean house, wonderful food, wonderful children. Everybody sounds happy and I think 99% of the families chosen by Southbourne School are really nice and will do their best for you.
The activities are really nice and the opportunity to go to different places and visit new town is really good. You can travel all around Britain and learn about the whole country and its culture.
People in the reception are really nice! They can help you with everything (school problems, family problems) but also for private things (train tickets) etc.
I would like to say thank you for the amazing time I had in England. I enjoyed every day at school. The teachers were lovely and very helpful before, during and after the course lessons and I have the impression that I learned a lot in my 5 weeks at school. My fellow students became very close friends during my stay in Bournemouth and also afterwards.
I found it really nice that the school offered trips to different cities and sights. These trips have been fantastic cultural experiences and were very funny because you talked a lot with the other students.
I love Bournemouth, especially for its cafes, pubs and discos where I spent lots of hours with my new friends.
My host family was very lovely. They took care of me and I felt very comfortable in their home.
I can recommend Southbourne School of English because of its familiarity, friendliness and the caring people that make the school what it is: a place where I felt home and I always will definitely return to.
Southbourne School of English has been my choice of English schools for me and groups of around 35 students for…
