I’d really like to invite you to come and stay with me here in Hastings, and enjoy a family experience or even a 1:1 study homestay, like no other!
When you stay with us here at Camden Lodge, you become part of a family experiencing the British way of life and, most importantly of all, using English in everyday conversation. It is also the cheapest way to learn English in the UK with comfortable accommodation, all meals catered for, in a really friendly home environment.
If you want to come here to study, you need to know that Camden Lodge is not like most other one-to-one homestay schools. With some homestay courses, after the lessons are over for the day, the student is left alone to have - what the tutor likes to call - ‘free time’. In truth, this simply means ‘left on your own’! This can sometimes be a bit lonely and isolating, especially when you’re alone in a strange country. However with Camden Lodge, when lessons finish, there is always someone there to support you, and to entertain you (whether you like it or not!). If, of course, you do want to be alone, to study, to read, or just to explore the area, then of course you are free to do this. But if you want company and the opportunity for plenty of conversation practice, then I am here for you.
If you just want to come and be part of the family, then we can arrange that, too!
I live with a very boring husband (a graphic designer), two extremely ugly children (well actually they've moved to Brighton, so that's even better for me!) , and three beautiful dogs in a large, seven-bedroomed Victorian house which is literally just a ten-minute walk from the centre of Hastings town centre and the seafront. My son is currently doing a PhD in neuroscience (BRAINS) at University of Sussex, and my daughter is a patent attorney (don't ask me what that entails) having gained a First Class Honours in her Degree in Physics at University of Birmingham. Obviously my children must take after their beautiful mother in intelligence...!
As a member of our family, you will, of course, be invited to join in any social activities that we are involved with. In the past, this has included attending weddings, birthday parties, christenings, and dinner parties at friends’ houses. However, as I’ve said above, if you prefer to have quiet time in your own room, then you are welcome to do this, too! We have several bicycles, so you may want to tour round Hastings and the seafront on a bike (it’s very safe on the seafront because you are allowed to ride on the promenade which is safer than riding on the road if you’re not used to driving on the left-hand side!)
Learning English in a friendly home environment is the quickest and most effective way to learn a language. In a one-to-one homestay experience, you can practice English all day long in an English speaking setting, and by taught by someone who will design and deliver a teaching program especially for you.
I am a fully-qualified English teacher and I have been hosting guests from overseas since 1995. Before teaching I was a writer for the BBC, where a high standard of English language knowledge was essential.
Please let me know if you want to know more information about me and my family and the costs. As I said before, if you only want to stay here, and not have lessons, I can arrange this too. I can also try to arrange work experiences for you, too.
