Due to popular demand Homestay England have developed the opportunity of a  homestay combination package. Combine the invaluable experience of learning English in England in a teacher's home with learning about the fascinating world of English antiques and further developing your English language.

This homestay package has five, three hour intensive English language lessons and three excursions during which you can learn about and buy English antiques in cute antique shops and Europe's largest indoor antique centre, at below London prices! There are two afternoons of free time for self study or relaxation which complete this package.

This total immersion homestay package provides maximum opportunity for natural and rapid progress in English language learning through support by native English speakers.

English language lessons are taken by Patricia, who is a qualified Cambridge English ESOL CELTA (formerly TEFL) teacher. Having gained a teaching award for her contribution to International Education from The European Council of International Schools, Patricia is a highly experienced teacher of English language and culture. She has taught English for many years in both England and in Asia.

The antique tuition and excursions are led by both Russ and Patricia. They can help you to negotiate special prices should you wish to buy.

Russ and Patricia have both spent many years enjoying teaching English and conversing with English learners both in England and overseas.

An English Language Teacher's Homestay + English Antiques package with Homestay England is taught in modules of 1 week . Please see our example below.

Lessons take place in the teaching room overlooking the cottage garden. We believe that language learning should be positive and pleasurable with the best learning taking place when the student is confident and relaxed.

The lessons are adapted to your specific level of learning and interest to develop your English learning goals such as speaking, writing and reading skills. A friendly assessment of your learning strengths, needs and fluency in your first lesson will allow your teacher to construct your individualised learning programme. We supply all learning materials.

Develop your conversation skills, listening, understanding, vocabulary and pronunciation daily by using the language you have studied in your lessons in real situations such as your English Antiques sessions, daily meal times, excursion or shopping trip, family and friend times etc.

In the afternoons enjoy private study time in your own room or in one of the quiet areas in your English home. Our guest bedrooms are all attractively furnished in a traditional English countryside manner. This enables you to live the English lifestyle in comfort. Relax in front of the wood burning fire in the lounge, read the numerous magazines and books, listen to and watch English DVDs. Take pleasure in your language learning.

Our adult small group class sizes are a maximum of 3 students.

1:1 lessons for those wishing to learn on an individual level.

2:1 and 3:1 lessons are popular with companies for staff development in English language skills, as mother and daughter stays and for friends travelling and learning together.

Lessons are from Monday to Friday with arrival on Sunday and departure on Saturday.
