Come to Visit The New Forest……and Learn English!

A Family Holiday – A Parent And Child Course


How satisfying it was to organise a holiday a family will always remember ……and they learnt English at the same time! Isabelle and her family from Lyon decided to combine annual leave and learning English this year. I spent a few months talking to  Isabelle, finding out about her family’s likes and dislikes, talking about their accommodation preferences, deciding on the best English  course for Isabelle’s children and putting together a proposal for her.

The Perfect Combined Immersion Course

After a few hiccups, we designed the perfect course – a total immersion course for all the family. The teenage daughter would stay with a  host family and Isabelle and her son with another host family. Both respective hosts had children of the same age as Isabelle’s to ensure communication was facilitated outside of lesson hours as well! Lessons were taken in the morning followed by lunch with the teacher and some guided afternoons of the local area. Evenings were spent with hosts sipping early evening drinks whilst the children played together.

Lovely Words From Isabelle

Hi Gail, I wanted to thank you so so much for this wonderful time we had this week.It was just so amazing to meet these lovely families. We are definitely coming back. Syloup’s English and  self- confidence has improved so much. Thank you again and I am very much looking forward to seeing you again.

Thank you Isabelle!
