What is 'English Experiences'?
English Experiences is a new private language learning service designed by an experienced English language teacher and trainer. It is a unique and different program in which busy adults can quickly improve their English while relaxing in nature in an English speaking country. Adult learners join a small group of up t0 6 course participants and live a full immersion experience - they live and learn together with their teacher and group in beautiful natural location in a comfortable vacation home. This is not a typical classroom in a typical school. In fact, it is superior to the traditional method of learning in a classroom in many ways: more individual attention, smaller groups, private coaching sessions, customized course content, all day speaking and listening practice with a teacher, a relaxing learning environment in fresh air so that it is easier for the brain to remember the language and more!
