Thank you for the three amazing weeks I’ve had in Southbourne School of English. The classes were awesome and my host family was adorable. People from staff were very kind and my teacher Richard was very good. It was definitely my best experience ever!
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!
Bright, friendly classrooms with modern equipment and very competent teachers. Excellent location!
Studying at Southbourne School was a positive experience. The teachers are interested in the success of their students. My students have improved a lot!
Accommodation all in walking distance, great! The students are very happy with their families.
Social programme and activities are well organised â€“ a pity that not more students are interested in film/quiz nights (Elisabeth’s students were focused on their exams – Abdi).
Reception: friendly, helpful and competent.
The school is near many gardens and near the beautiful streets. Teacher Ami’s class is funny and interesting. The homestay family are nice.

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.
