Other comments:
Unfortunately, the promises about the host families were and are not true. The fantasies of the students about typical English families, living as they live, eat what they eat and applying what you have learned when you talk to them, were for me and a lot of other students I talked to very ridiculous. A lot of these families were not English and we as students could speak better English than them. The booked and paid half board could have saved most of us some money.
