My aunty booked my English course with Live and Learn Homestays, in July 2012, because a friend recommended the company to her.

I am so happy to have this experience because I feel that every day I have learnt more English. It is very important to live-in as you have to listen all the time and try to communicate with the family.

Now I try to speak and communicate with other people that I meet in England but before I didn’t feel comfortable as I felt embarrassed if I made a mistake. Now I feel more confident and I can understand better what people are saying. My reading and writing are more fluent and easier for me.
I got to see some beautiful places and have nice traditional English meals as well as an Asian meal. I learnt about British culture and I enjoyed being with the family and going to different places.
If I were someone considering using Live and Learn Homestays, I would advise them to enjoy the experience, have fun and learn!
