All our students stay in Homestay accommodation. Our hosts are all friendly and provide you with the opportunity to use your English in a comfortable, home environment.
If you come on a Study Holiday, you will be assessed through a Placement Test and speaking assessment during your first day. If you come for a Short Course your Group Leaders will provide us with your level before your arrival at The English Experience. A Placement Test is available on request, and advised for students on a longer Short Course programme.
All our lessons are interactive, communicative and designed to engage young people. Our qualified teachers select current and relevant topics, allowing both independent and collaborative learning to complete tasks. You will be taught at the level appropriate for you to practice and progress in your language skills, grammar and pronunciation
Most of our students take the bus from their homestay to school. The route is clearly explained by the host parent, and a diagram and directions given. Some students who live in close proximity to the school may walk.
Groups will be met at the point of entry to the UK by a member of The English Experience staff. They will travel with you back to Norwich where you will meet your host. If you are travelling independently, please ensure that you check your airline policy regarding unaccompanied under-18s travel. Our office is happy to advise you on transfers to Norwich
This will vary depending on your programme. Usually groups have a full activity programme that allows at least one day per week (normally at the weekend) free to spend with their host families and explore the local area. Some groups may also have an afternoon without a planned activity to enjoy free time or shopping.
Your accommodation, all catering costs and activity costs are included in the price. Any additional activities you request may cost extra. You might want to bring spending money for souvenirs, shopping etc. You will also need to purchase a bus ticket for local travel.
