Students on Adult Courses


I fell in love with Bournemouth. My Host Family is lovely! My host brother, Seb, taught me how to play the guitar and we had unforgettable time. I also enjoyed going shopping with my host-mum Michelle. Besides, I had a great experience as I lived with girls from Spain, Italy and Turkey.


The Southbourne School of English provides students with a great environment to study and is equipped with all modern facilities needed to learn and improve their English.

Southbourne is a great place, it is safe and a really nice area to live and study, and just 10 minutes walk from the beach and minutes 20 by bus from the centre.

Good English courses with quality English lessons and excellent value for money. The students have the opportunity to improve their English with highly qualified and friendly teachers. It is a great idea to live local host families. Our students are always happy with the host families who are kind to the students. In addition it is a wonderful way to learn more about British culture.

The social and activity staff do a great job giving the students the chance to take part activities and to visit places of interest. The reception team are efficient and kind, they are always there to help every time you need something.

Southbourne school’s summer programme was the best I have ever attended. Not only did I learn a lot through the course, but I also met people from everywhere .

In addition, I really got to know my fellow students and the counsellors through the time we spent together in class, on the excursions and evening activities.

Overall, this was an awesome experience and I would recommend it to pretty much anyone.


My stay at Southbourne School of English has been great! The teachers are fabulous and very kind. I would be delighted to recommend Southbourne School of English to all my friends.


My host family is really good. They are polite, communicative and help me in all situations if I needed it. The food was very tasty and my room was very tidy so I was happy.


The General course in the morning helped me to improve grammar rules. The thing I found most useful was the one-to-one lessons. My teacher was very professional, motivated and his method of teaching was really refreshing and inventive too.
