In April 2012, I spent 1 week in Birmingham having lessons with my homestay teacher.

My experience has been fantastic and was important to me. I returned back home fully satisfied.
My host family was very friendly and warm. I could speak English with them very often.
I practised my English during lessons in the morning, while in the afternoon I went sightseeing with my teacher.

I could have never imagined that from a simple study trip I could feel such enthusiasm and could have felt so melancholic when it had finished.

Furthermore the prices, compared to other schools, are very competitive without loss of service quality.

I suggest this experience to anyone, from any age, you just have to let yourself go.
Lorna, thank you for your excellent organisation.
And thank to All Things London as well, your Italian partner.
