Reflecting on our busiest summer season of the last few years, it's been fantastic to welcome students back in great numbers, from over 25 countries. We've been joined by some exciting guests, including an ex-minister from Mauritania!
We hosted students all over the UK, including courses in London, Scotland, Wales, the North of England and the South West, who experienced British pastimes such as baking and cooking, planting vegetable gardens and going to the cinema, walking in the countryside or on the beach, punting on the river Cam in Cambridge, shopping, blackberry picking, and meeting friends for dinner and socialising.
Our students have done a fantastic array of activities and excursions, including a trip to Portobello Beach for dog walking and a visit to Craigmillar castle in Scotland, the magnificent Petworth House National Trust site, a visit to The Devil's Punch Bowl, wedding bell ringing in Haslemere Parish Church, trips to exciting cities like Liverpool and Manchester, Yorkshire Sculpture Park, Splashdown water parks, theatre shows and lovely restaurants. Some students went to watch the England women's football team, others caught the Titanic Experience in London, and other great museums such as the SS Great Britain and the Imperial War Museum, and one of our lucky students went sailing with their teacher!
As the summer of 2022 ends, we're excited to let you know what we have planned for the rest of the year...

What our students say...
Some of your kindest words about us this summer!
This summer has seen some amazing feedback from our courses, with 94% of our students saying they would recommend an LLE course to a friend or family member!
We delve into what some of you have to say about our service.
'We worked on a lot of things during this two weeks, but what helped me the most was working together on my grammar issues but also Marie helped me to become more confident and fluent when I speak.
I enjoyed a lot the excursions but also the friendly relationship between Marie and I. I had a lot good time but at the same time I learnt a lot of things and I improved my English.’

'For me the teaching methods are perfect. They don't need to be improved.’

'In my opinion the teacher and her husband have lovely personalities. They are perfect for the job they are doing with the students. We never had any problems and even if there would be a problem we would find a solution very fast. So I’m onest there are no negativ aspects I can think off!
Every day was different. We visited many different places. I even met three of Katy’s friends and had conversations with them. I had the choice between different activities for example if I wanted to visit a nature reserve or caves. I was never bored during the afternoons.
I had a wonderful course timetable. It was a perfect mix between freetime and lessons. I choose four houses a day. I personally would say that after four hours I am exhausted but I‘m still enjoying it. I also had time for myself where I could just relax.
Katy is a very good teacher. She asked me if I would like to do something in the lessons to make them more interesting. Even when you are very unconsentrated she tries to carry on and maybe distracted you with a little game. So again no negativ aspects!
All in all I would say that everything was perfect. We did a lot of activities and I even reached my goal for this whole trip: to improve my English. So I can’t imagine to have a better teacher.’
