Live With Your Teacher To Enhance Language Learning
Lessons that extend to daily life, meals, visits and television programmes might not sound like too much fun; however, appearances can be deceiving.

How about a summer where you pick up a new language intuitively, without even being aware of the fact that every day is a lesson. Answer English (AE) gives students an opportunity to learn English in the comfort of teachers’ houses. Students get to live with the teacher and their family, picking up the nuances of the English language, as well as the traditions and cultures that go along with it.
AE specialises in finding the right English courses London offers for international students, depending on their proficiency with the language. There are courses for beginners and fast-track ones for those looking to polish their reading and writing skills. Courses can be tailored according to a student’s future plans. For example, there are refresher courses for students interested in starting university in England in the next couple of months and Executive courses for those who want to improve their English speaking, writing, reading and listening skills. There are also courses for young lawyers who need to communicate more confidently in legal situations and use specialised vocabulary effectively.
AE’s aim is to make the duration of the course as enjoyable and instructive as possible. Teaching aids include DVDs, TV and audio programmes, magazines and newspapers. In addition to this, students are encouraged to explore the cities they’re in, increasing interaction and introducing them to a different culture and way of being. Studying at an English school London is home to can prove to be a holistic learning experience – theatres, clubs, pubs, museums and parks provide ample opportunity to discover the city. The AE team is on call to help students with accommodation as well as recommendations of things to do around the city.
Spending the summer on a course might not sound like the ideal way to spend it. However, with AE, students can be assured of a special lesson that involves as much fun as instruction. Explore a new city, make new friends and learn a new language all at the same time.
About Answer English:
Founded in 2006, Answer English is a comprehensive service for international students interested in learning English. The agency was originally started by James Herbertson, who was inspired by a summer spent in Malaga, Spain, learning Spanish. The idea to learn English in an English-speaking city came with its creative perks, and Herbertson was keen to take advantage of the learning ground that London presented. Based in London, Answer English offers free advice and a wide range of courses to meet individual requirements and varying budgets. Schools recommended by them are all accredited by the British Council. In 2010, it was sold to Alexander Akola, who owns the prestigious French language agency VELA in Paris.
