Living Learning English takes great care to ensure that all students are met on arrival by their teacher, a staff member of Living Learning English or an appointed driver at the local airport, train or bus station. Please send a photograph with your enrolment form so your teacher can recognise you. We will also send you a photograph of your teacher and a sign with your name on it that the person meeting you at the airport will be holding in arrivals.
On the first day, you are welcomed into your teacher's home. You are given time to settle in and your teacher will explain everything about mealtimes, family routines, lessons and the local area. Your teacher will also plan social activities with you according to your interests. In the first lesson, you will discuss your language learning needs with your teacher who will assess your level of English and plan a course of study with you
Your teacher will expect you to arrive on Sunday afternoon or evening and depart on Saturday morning. Longer stays can be arranged and an extra night homestay is charged at £80 per person per night
Local transfers from the nearest bus or train station to the teacher's home are FREE. If you are a fairly confident traveller, it is easy to get from the airport to the teacher's home town by bus (www.nationalexpress.com) or by train (www.nationalrail.co.uk).
If you require a personal airport transfer, the teacher or a member of Living Learning English staff will be happy to meet you at the nearest airport for a reasonable charge. Please ensure the arrival and departure time is after 7.30am. Any flight requiring a personal transfer which arrives/departs before 7.30am will incur an additional charge
We will advise on the best point of entry to the UK based on the location of your homestay course - please talk to us about this before booking your flight.
I had the best week ever
