Quarantine with your teacher
Due to the current UK entry requirements, you may need to spend a period of 10 days in quarantine in the UK on entry. This could be while you await negative COVID tests, before proceeding to your destination, or it could be part of a longer course of study with us.
You can make good use of this time with a Living Learning English quarantine course, staying in your teacher's home as part of the family.
This year, up to three students from different amber-list countries can quarantine together. This means that our popular summer 2:1 courses can now go ahead, with quarantine.
These courses will be 2 weeks minimum, though we would recommend 3 weeks as after 10 days of quarantine, students will be able to go on excursions - fun days out to museums, famous sights, beauty spots and other places of interest around the UK.
We have professional and friendly teachers all over the UK who are ready to welcome students for a 1:1 home tuition course, who are fully trained to offer a high-quality, safe and enjoyable experience with quarantine. This means students will be ready to start at a language school, boarding school or university fully quarantined after 10 days, and adapted to living and studying in the UK, or to continue their home tuition course after the quarantine period. In addition to lessons, students will do high-quality home-based activities.
During your course with quarantine, you will form a bubble with your teacher in their family home. This means you will be able to live in their home as usual, with no social distancing measures, and no need to wear a mask. You will be able to have lessons with your teacher as students normally do during our home tuition courses, and spend time with your teacher and their family in the afternoons and evenings, taking meals with them and doing home-based activities. The only difference is that since you will be in quarantine, you will not be able to leave your teacher's house during your course, you will be able to enjoy their garden though!
Our teachers for our courses with quarantine have large, spacious and beautiful homes with gardens for you to enjoy. You will have access to plenty of space, including your own private room, study areas and family living spaces within your teacher's home.
Meet some of our teachers that are waiting to welcome students this summer:
Kay has a large and relaxing house with a big garden and a gym room. She has previously hosted students for courses with quarantine.
Sarah has a bright and spacious house with a lovely garden and plenty of living space.
We know you can trust that a Living Learning English course with quarantine will be an enjoyable and educational experience, but we'd like you to hear it from our students too.
Our student Olesia came to the UK to study with her teacher Kay in September 2020. She loved her course with quarantine so much that she came back in March 2021 for another English course with quarantine!
