I wanted to improve my English quickly so I contacted the Director of Live and Learn Homestays, Lorna via her website.

I did try contacting other homestay companies but chose Live and Learn Homestays because it was recommended by a friend.

I would rate my experience as 9 out of 10 because Lorna was very friendly, professional and precise.

I had the opportunity to speak, listen and learn and because of this my English is now better.

My teacher, Helen was very welcoming and I had a great time with her.

For people considering a course with Live and Learn Homestays, I would say that it is a good experience and helps you to improve your speaking and listening skills. Also, because you live with your teacher, you get to know about the culture and customs.
