Meet Asaliah ‘Azi’ Mugnier from Switzerland

England is the best place to study because I wanted to be in a country where people speak English and England is the nearest to my own country ….. I really enjoy my host family, they were very cheerful and the children are very noisy! It is a very vibrant house and I will miss them when I leave. I think it is very helpful to speak with the children and to always hear English ….. you will have an unforgettable experience. British etiquette is different – they are very polite, they say please and thank you a lot and they say sorry all the time! …..

Meet Ally Liu from China

I was introduced to CELC by a man called Adam (originally from Bournemouth), who is a teacher in my company back in China. He recommended this area and school for studying English. …. My host family is very nice. They treat me like part of the family, asking if I’ve slept well, etc. They give us a lot of attention, checking if we’re okay. If I came back here with a friend, I would introduce them to my host mother. …. If you really want to learn English, then this school is the right choice.

Meet Nicholas ‘Nico’ Raviotta from Italy

I think if you want to study English, you need to be in a country where it is the first language. You can study English in your country, but it’s not the same because at home you only use it in class, but in England you have to speak it all the time. …. Before I arrived here, I was scared because I never met the family and I didn’t know what they were like, but I have a beautiful host family. I have a good feeling and they help me a lot with my English – they correct me when I say the wrong sentences, and we speak a lot and they help me with any problems that I have. They are like my second family now. …. There is a good feeling at the school and the teachers are very helpful and are happy to answer our questions.

Meet Melanie from Switzerland

For my job I thought it would be useful. People around me, like my colleagues and boss, encouraged me to come. It’s also useful for travelling in the future. I wanted to come to England (rather than America, etc), because it’s the “real” English! Also the distance between Switzerland and England is short. …. I have really enjoyed my stay in England so far and especially in CELC. I had such a good time! It was like a dream for me. The people I’ve met are so nice and so friendly, and it’s so warm-hearted. The ambience is like a family and I really like this. And they are really devoted to make you feel like at home. I will never forget!!

Meet Marcela Duque, Age 21 from Colombia

I had a choice between England and the USA, but I chose England because the culture, the people and the traditions are completely different to my country. I also wanted to learn English in the place where English was born and to learn the British accent – this would be amazing for me. I also have a sister in law and a cousin who came to England to study at CELC and they said it was great. …. For me, Durdle Door was the best trip because the landscape was just wow! I felt so small looking at the gigantic ocean, because we had to climb a big hill, but when we got to the top, we could see 360 degrees; I could see the sea and a small town – it was beautiful. …. Another thing is that the people that I met here are amazing. They are like your family and when you have to say goodbye to them it is really sad, but you are happy because you know you have spent a good time with them.
