South Scotland English Homestay - better than an English course!
We are a family of six with four children aged 5, 9, 12 and 14, living in Duns in the Scottish Borders. Duns is a small, pretty town about one hour south east of Edinburgh, close to some of Scotland's best beaches, country houses and abbeys. We live in a fabulous Georgian villa surrounded by gardens and trees, close to the town centre. We have been hosting guests from abroad for a number of years and I have helped many of them with their English in day-to-day exchanges. In 2014 I completed a TEFL course and have enjoyed getting back to my original dream of teaching English which started 25 years ago.
An English Language Homestay with our family is not always about traditional classroom teaching, but mostly about learning English in an authentic environment in beautiful surroundings in the Scottish Borders. It is best to regard a stay with us as a fun-filled holiday, picking up a wealth of English on the way! Whilst it is possible to have one-to-one English tuition if desired (using course books supplemented by other, specially tailored, materials), you will find that most of your learning will be more hands-on and involve everyday activities such as conversations over the dinner table or exploring the local area. Learning days out could include trips to the beach, a trip to Edinburgh, visiting gardens and picturesque towns and abbeys in the Scottish Borders, going for walks and finishing the day with a campfire in the garden.
