Before I chose Live and Learn Homestays, I did contact other immersion English course providers but I chose your company for the following reasons:

-  I read on the internet good and positive feedback that other people wrote about their experience with you;

- You were very friendly and kind during our communication via email;

- Your solution was a little bit less expensive than others.

I would score my experience 9 out of 10. I am very satisfied of this experience because I have had a lots of opportunities to speak English with lots of different people all day.

After this experience I can understand better when people speak in English; I have also improved a little bit my speaking skills (but maybe just a week is not enough to see a great improvement).

The welcome I received was perfect; both my teacher and all the family made me feel at home from the first minute.

If I were to advise other people looking for a similar course, the only advice I can give you, just in case you are a young person, is to choose a home near a pub or city centre in case you would like to go out in the evenings (e.g. to have a beer in a pub).
