Ray from Mexico took virtual English lessons with a UK language school
These two weeks for me were so good. I want to come back here next year. If I can, I would stay here for one month or all year! I found here a lot of new friends. I have never cried so much when I am leaving. I love this place so much, it is forever in my heart.
Sofia from Ukraine studied English in Hastings
Studying in the UK during the Covid pandemic is OK, it’s not very hard. And now we have the habit to wear the mask and talk at a certain distance, so it’s OK. From Monday we will go inside restaurants and pubs! So, it’s very great to be in England now. It’s good to just talk and make friends. The lessons are different than in France. Here we talk a lot. We have good relationships with other students and the teacher. And we improve quickly.
