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 the beautiful skill of English flower arranging and further developing your English language.

This homestay package has five, three hour intensive English language lessons in the morning and two flower arranging lessons in the afternoon, lasting for two hours each. An afternoon of shopping or sightseeing and two afternoons of free time for self study or relaxation complete this package.

This total immersion English language + English flower arranging homestay package provides maximum opportunity for natural and rapid progress in English language learning through support by native English speakers. It also gives the opportunity to develop flower arranging vocabulary, understanding, skills and technique.

The 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 flower arranging lessons are taught by Russ, who is a former gardening advisor to The British Embassy in Japan. Russ studied English flower arranging on his return to England to add to his interest in combining flowers and foliage by using a wide range of colour, texture and shape, as he does in his garden designs.

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

An English  + Flower Arranging package with Homestay England is taught in modules of 1 week . Please see our example at the bottom of this page.

Lessons take place in our relaxing 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 flower arranging sessions, daily meal times, excursion or shopping trip, family and friend times etc.
