The quality of the lessons is fantastic, worthwhile, fun and relaxing at the same time as productive. The atmosphere here is very charming and the people living here are also very kind and always interacting with me. Everything has been better than I thought. I’ve learnt not only English but also about life! Lots of thanks to you all. I’ve enjoyed like a child being with all your friends and I have never felt out of place.

My English Friends was the best gift in my life. I improved my English a lot. I became more fluent and gained more confidence. If you want to improve your English intensively you will receive full support from My English Friends. There is a teacher in the group that speaks Portuguese but she will never speak to you in Portuguese but always encourage you to speak English.

Our holiday went really well – everything has been organised. The teacher was very kind and patient; the lessons and quality of teaching were excellent – I can say we were on the same wave length. Conversation was more self confident with improved pronunciation, thanks to the English exposure and social activities. The memory of the holiday in Brighton is still vivid and I want to thank you for the job you have done for me. I spent such a lovely time with you! I hope to come back next year.
My English Friends is an excellent way to study and learn! The teachers are so friendly and they can give you exactly what you need.
I was searching for an intensive English course when the website of My English Friends caught my eye. Everything sounded and looked promising – both professional and personal; and since Brighton was a place I had never been to, I decided to give it a try … To cut a long story short: I had the most fantastic week; all my expectations were met to the absolute fullest extent. Not only was I able to improve my English but I also had a lot of fun and got to know wonderful people. I can recommend My English Friends to everyone who wants to learn English in a relaxed and personal atmosphere. Cathy and Lilly and all the teachers I have met do a great job. They are experienced, competent, highly committed, enthusiastic and supercool. I enjoyed every single moment of my stay and I will definitely book another course as soon as possible.
My English Friends is a great experience for all students and teachers who want to improve their English. That doesn’t mean that you just study English during your lessons – it means you get in touch with the language, lifestyle and culture all day long. To live in Brighton as part of a real English family was great in terms of being part of their lifestyle and culture. My English Friends is kind of a big family who takes care of you and your needs during your stay. It was always good to know that there is someone who tries to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. The outings were always fun and it was easy to get in touch with other students from My English Friends. I really enjoyed my stay in Brighton and the great language experience. All in all I would say that it was totally worth it to come to Brighton for two weeks. I definitely plan the next stay in Brighton with My English Friends.

The best thing I found about homestay with My English Friends is that you practice your English all the time – and they always correct your mistakes. You also understand how other people live and discover another culture. I met a lot of Cathy’s English friends so my mind was always in English. Brighton is a really wonderful city – the people are so friendly and polite. It’s easy to walk around and get to know the city. Brighton is a socially rich city and you can find what you want. There’s lots to do. The classes are more interesting than normal ones. They are more flexible and we can talk about different things. If you really want to improve your English, visit Brighton with My English Friends. They become your friends and family during your stay!
A wonderful experience! A beautiful city! Very professional teachers who are friendly with you all the time. The contact with the language is everywhere, all the time – you really will live like an English person! My vocabulary improved a lot, the same with my listening. Today I can speak much more confidently. Thank you for everything!
Perfect! And I really enjoyed the evenings with Cathy and Lilly – for me it was very important to socialise; and my grammar is getting better and I can speak more fluently.

I was in the UK for two weeks and it was great. I learnt more in these two weeks than in three years with my teacher in Switzerland. The time went by very fast. If I had the choice to do it again, I would.
Kevin Ceraulo, Switzerland
A very intensive programme – the quality was even higher than I expected and the lessons were inspirational! The day out was great fun – I was really impressed by the guide’s knowledge of British culture and history.
I found the course so great that I plan to come back to Brighton!
Leandro Palma Dattoli, Brazil
It was a good experience; for me the results have been very satisfying. I managed to feel more comfortable speaking and listening in English. My teacher and My English Friends made my stay in Brighton great!
Maria Jose Moreno, Spain
My teacher was really a very kind person and her welcome was great. I always felt good with her. She spoke slowly so that I could understand everything. Her way of teaching was excellent and I improved in speaking (before it was very difficult for me), and learned new vocabulary. In a few days we reviewed a lot of things.
Stelya Biagiotti, Italy
My listening has improved thanks to good explanation and intensive exercises in English phonetics. I now understand how to use many specific words which were not obvious to me even when explained by my teacher back home.
I really enjoyed being a student with My English Friends and meeting other teachers and friends. Everyone was really welcoming and kind as soon as I arrived and by the second week I was already improving.
My family was so kind and welcoming – I never felt alone. I thought the classes were excellent – the teacher was very creative and the lessons were really interesting: I learnt grammar and colloquial English, had lessons with songs, went on great outings, learnt some cooking and played golf!
Bruno Santana, Brazil
Full immersion in the British way of life, combined with professional English lessons, is the best and only way to master the English language. A most enriching experience!
My teacher was the best I could wish to have. She’s not just a teacher, she’s a very, very special person.
Homestay with an experienced language teacher is a very good way for anyone who wants to improve their English but is not sure which method to choose.
