    This video is very useful when learning English. It reveals all the possibilities of living in an English family . living with the family, we learn a lot about traditions, customs, cooking and much more. Homestay is also a support for you. I would like to experience such an experience.

  2. Valeriya says:

    I liked the video. I think that this is a good experience and you should not miss this opportunity. I would like to participate in this system to raise my level of English and learn something new about the country, about the culture and everyday life of ordinary people.

    This is a very informative video.
    With this video, I realized what it was like to live abroad in a homestay.
    Families can teach you a lot. There you will learn about traditions and customs. You will learn to cook and will take care of you. I would like to experience such an experience.

  4. José says:

    I consider that living in other country you can learn more experience, also you can exchange differents culture, sport and other activities that will help you to develop the knowlegde, training different aspect of grammar like: speaking, listening, reading and writing. We hope to have the same oportunities because is the best choices to refine the pronuntiation and increase the knowlegde in english.

    I went EF manchester for 22 weeks. I believed for British Family side. But everything is disappointed. You will live with an imigrant citizen. Their house is very dirty, untidy, unconfortable and you can not eat anything at home. Please If you think about language education in the UK, you have to check every think. Because there big lier.

  6. Prasit says:

    This video is a very motivational pertaining to learning the English language. One of the best thing that Homestay is a good support to adapt the language very fast including English culture. It could be wiser if we see the day to day conversation during roundtable dinner time.

  25. Ng Chi Fai says:

    I found this video extremely useful!It is so great.
    I am going to the Cambridge in around 29th September this year,and I choose to stay in the home stay too,so this video provides the general view of the life of living with host family.Besides,I feel Cambridge is so beautiful!The buildings are so romantic and elegant!

    I share the same view as the last girl saying that you ought to be open,don’t bring your world into it.I think international students should be eager to learn and adapt some new things!To be open-minded!

    thanks so much for English Club to produce such a great video program.

  29. ladysabrina says:

    Hi,i really like this video & it is very helpful for me since i am an English student,i think it is also useful for the foreign students in which this video gives us an idea about the homestay’s programme.UNfortunatly, here in Algeria,responsibles do not deal with this programme.In the end,i think this programme gives a real opportunity to students in order to be open to new way of life & culture in England.& thank you again.

  30. Saleem Awabdeh says:

    I think this kind of programmes home stay has been working well in Jordan,because private and public schools send students and teacher of English to practice their language with the mother tongue speakers.also we have American volunteers from Peace Corps help students and teachers of English in their teaching at school and the social community too in villages in case they can’t go outside Jordan for financial problems .
    S0 this type of videos help us a lot but not as home stay .
    Thanks a lot

  31. Muhammad Nabeel says:

    Its very informative and amazing video…This kind of video helpful for English Learner and I looking forward more videos like that…

  32. Bandu Ranawaka says:

    I also like to connect this english lerning programme

  33. M. Alessandra Agostini says:

    I’m writing this comment because I appreciated it a lot. Actually, I think that living in Great britain should be the best choice for a student. In my experience, I started it late, when I already had my degree.
    It’s very important to forget the Italian food and to appreciate typical English food, especially in pubs where you can meet other people or you can go there with your friends.
    “Travelling broadens up your mind” was the title of one of my compositions at the University in Milan. It’s really very TRUE!!!
    You have to adapt yourself to the country, to the family, to your teachers, so you’ll enjoy your stay forever.
    I have a very beautiful souvenir of my homestay in 1981 when I met my German friend Rita and we are writing in these days as during the first years.
    The school was the best of my choices and we were a very great cosmopolite family!!! I had a very clever Australian teacher of English and a very sensitive English teacher.
    I love it all!!!!!
    I can’t forget those days!!!
    I didn’t want to come back to Italy!!!.
    So, boys and girls, go to Great Britain, improve your English, meet new people and enjoy yourselves!!

  45. Sultan Ahmed says:

    Great!!I think it is very interesting and useful for students to learn that there is such an opportunity to learn effectively foreign language.people learning English as the second language.

  46. ihab says:

  47. Monika says:

    Thank you Daniel for this fascinating video!
    This film pleased me the best from all,a really nice job!
    I wish my daughter could enjoy the advantages of homestay in Cambridge,in the future.
    My best regards:

  48. Liudmila says:

    Thanks a lot for a nice video film. It could be a real motivation for the young people not only master English,but be able to understand and feel the country the language they study. A homestay programm contributes greatly to this process, providing students both with the security in a family and friendly assistance in learning things.

    Best Regards

  49. Sunho says:

    Thank you for sharing this wonderful product with hundreds of English leaners here. I have lived in Australia for more than three years now and have been sharing a house with local people. I think if you go anywhere where English is being spoken as a first language and live with local you should be understanding the accent or ways of speech in other English speaking countries, such as U.S. or Canada. I am sure that it would happen because I do have expearience about it.
    So the conclusion is that you do not have to go to Cambridge in U.K. to be flunet or be perfect in your English.

  50. SAMUEL says:

    Great! Iwish I would have seen something of the kind, just before being a homestay myself. It would have been very useful. Congratulations, once more for your work!

  51. selma says:

    This video show me how important to live in England or USA in terms of learning english (to be fluent) one more time. This video is not only to make a pracrise it is also a good way in order to be lightened. Especially I found Joy’s and the last previous student’s comments good to me.
    It doesn’t seem available to me going there.So I have to find another solution to be fluent.
    Thanks to this video, it is very good to those people who is looking for a effective method for self-training.In addition, it is good reasoned to its text showed beside the film. It provides easy tracing.
    By the way, May you prepare other some applicable advices to people under self-training in their country ? I know there are a lot of advices in the net but there is still something missing.:)))

  52. shanthi. says:

    Dear sir,

    I am shanthi from India, i am very much interested to learn English from Ur website, but my bad luck now i don’t have any job, still we means me and my husband very much suffering with out money, i cont consent rate in your subject. what to do please help me.

  53. Rebekka says:

    This video is really good, i enjoyed it. I would like to see myself as a successful linguist in my country in the near future.

  54. nair R P says:

    This video has been very useful for me. I am training students in India, who are proceeding to London for higher studies there. There is one UK Induction course for those students. So, when I teach them UK Fact file, transportation in London and about living with money in London, I have to explain with my resources/brochures collected during my short stay in London.
    Your video has given me a lot of new information about Cambridge, home stays there, lifestyles, habits of students and hosts and so on. Thank you so much for the invitation to watch this excellent production. Congratulations!

  55. Carlos says:

    I would like to go to Cambridge and do a homestay year. I think it’s a great experence because you’re interacting with culture,society and language.

  56. Millie says:

    Enjoyed watching this video. Without doubt probably one of the most effective ways of learning English (or any other foreign language). Students seemed to have immersed themselves in not only the English language as such, but also a temporary acceptance of another culture in order to meet their goals.
    Well done!

  57. Bipa says:

    Dear Josef, thanks a lot for your films. They are so helpful for us, people learning English as the second language. I would like to show them to my students and then discuss them.Your films are often better than dull textbooks. We lack live English, the language of ordinary people, and not the one spoken by the Queen, the TV…, though correct literary English is as well necessary.

  58. curly says:

    Loved it. Wish I was young again and I would have done the exact same thing. I think I’ll show this to my students and persuade them to go…
    Or maybe homestay should be available for people teaching English!

  59. Rana says:

    Thank you for your invitation to watch the subject video film, which is really a great exposure of your sincere efforts and crystal clear picture of your success in offering various English courses world-wide. Truly speaking, for me ‘homestay’ is quite a new thing, very informative film and appealing to recommend prospective scholars if they can get benefit from your valued courses. Hope to have more similar videos in future and your constant consideration.

    Thank you once again for your courtesy and wish you the best. With my special regards to the Founder and its Community.

  60. Alla says:

    Thank you for such a great video project. It is very interesting and useful for students to learn that there is such an opportunity to learn effectively foreign language. Thank you.

  61. Sorida Duran says:

    It’s a very interesting video, through it we can know about the posibilities that we have to learn English and this is the best way to do it. Being in contact with the language during the whole day in a familiar and confortable environment. I would like my daughter could have an experience like this. Thanks for the valuable information.

  62. Suja says:

    Awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks a lot.

  63. Elena says:

    I think it is very powerful and interesting. I’ve just watched this film three times this morning. I very pleased this film.

    If I would younger, I would come to Cambridge to learn English in homestay program because I think it is by far the most powerful method.

  64. Ida Bagus Gede Sutarja says:

    This is a very good video and I’m sure that teachers and students will enjoy learning english using this video.

  65. yanti ismiyati says:

    well,i have problem in internet conection i could not wath the video.but i could read the conversation.Indonesia is my country but y dream to study in abroad never died..English is one of the best pronounciation in the world..because if i hear English accent is so clear and easy to understand…i wish i can reach my dream to study in abroad ,see and touch people cultural with my own point of view.nice experience really..but just dream for woman like me who does not have money to go…

  66. Aneta says:

    Super videos!

  67. myriam gorguos says:

    thanks a lot for this interesting and usefull video!

  68. Gemmie Kwok says:

    Wow! another good video! I enjoyed watching this one too. I think homestay is the great way for international college students to learn and practice speaking English with their homestay families.

    I especially agree with Michaela, the Czech Republic student, who said that the best way to learn the second language is to live it and not to bring your world (culture and everything) with you.

    Thank you for such a great video project.

  69. agt says:

    I think it was very interesting to have heard those happy students
    telling us the best way to take real practice in English, perhaps it
    is an important opportunity to learn effectively any language.
    I would like to be there.
    Thank you

  70. Piroska says:

    This video gives very useful advice for Hungarian students abaut
    homestay arrangement in the UK.I have forwarded it to some
    teachers who teach English.
    English is the most popular foreign language here in Hungary.
    It would be very good if Daniel Emmerson could make a documentary
    film not only in Romania but in Hungary,in Budapest too.
    Hungarian-English teachers also need advice how to develop their
    method and what is the student’s opinion abaut it.Beside these
    Budapest is one of the most beautiful capitals in Europa.
    Thank you for your videos and lessons.
    Best regards,
