Perfect! The best and only way to master the English language. A most enriching experience.
A very intensive programme – the lessons were inspirational.
My family was so kind and welcoming – I never felt alone.
I found the course so great I plan to comeback to Brighton!
You really will live like an English person!
I learnt more in these two weeks than in three years with my teacher in Switzerland.
If I had the choice to do it again, I would.
My teacher was the best I could wish to have. She’s not just a teacher, she’s a very, very special person.
A wonderful experience! A beautiful city! Very professional teachers!
Contact with the language is everywhere, all the time.
My English Friends made my stay in Brighton great.

“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.”

A (very) short history of Brighton

English language homestay courses in your teacher's home

Brighton streets

Brighton began as a small Saxon village called Beorthelm’s Tun (Beorthelm’s farm or village) in the 5th century. By the 14th century it was a busy little market town. In 1514 and again in 1545 the French burned down the town, which was easy as most buildings were wooden with thatched roofs; but despite this, Brighton was soon rebuilt and by 1580 Beorthelm’s Tun became a flourishing little town with a population of around 2,500. Brighton, the modern name for the town, was first recorded in 1660.
